The President of the court, Mr John Oladejo, while dissolving the marriage, said the actions of the respondent indicated his lack of interest in the marriage.

“The defendant was adamant in not honouring several summons of the court for possible peaceful resolution of the case.

“The court has no choice other than to uphold the request of  the petitioner.

“The court therefore pronounces  the marriage between Saudat and Isiaka Oladiti dissolved today. Both parties henceforth cease  to be husband and wife,’’ he said.

Oladejo, however, awarded the custody of  three  of the children to the petitioner.

“The three children that are in the custody of the petitioner should remain with her since her evidences before the court had proved that she can continue to cater for the children.

“The first child also should remain with the respondent until otherwise.

“ In addition, the respondent is warned not to molest nor threaten the petitioner henceforth,’’ Oladejo  stated.

Earlier, Saudat had alleged that her husband often  beat her and refused to provide for the needs of the children.

“His relatives were tired and are no more interested in intervening in our misunderstanding.

“Our families have lost interest in our remaining as husband and wife.

“I pray  your lordship to dissolve this marriage so that I will be free from his molestation and brutality,’’ Saudat  told the court.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)  reports that the court had   adjourned the case three times in its bid to mediate and resolve the dispute.

The respondent, however, failed to honour the court summon.

The court subsequently delivered the judgment in the absence of the respondent.
