A Customary Court in Ado-Ekiti on Friday, dissolved an eight-year-old marriage between Aminat Shaibu and her husband, Isa Jimoh over cheating suspicion and abuse.
Delivering judgment, the President of the Court, Mrs Olayinka Akomolede observed that the marriage had broken down and cannot be repaired.
She also held that the marriage was dissolved on grounds of constant fighting, threat to life, desertion and lack of care by the husband.
Akomolede granted custody of the children to Shuaibu and ordered Jimoh to pay N7,000 as monthly feeding allowance.
She ordered that both parties shall be responsible for the paying school fees for the children.
Shuaibu told the court that she moved out of her husband’s house 15 months ago when he ordered her out.
”My husband beats me at the slightest provocation. He also accuses me of infidelity. He abuses me in front of my two children.
”He has poured urine on my clothes and destroyed my sewing machine and cell phone,” she said.
