A customary court sitting at Agbeloba in Abeokuta has dissolved the 19-year-old marriage of Oluwafunmilayo Adejumo and her husband.
The wife accused her husband, Mr Adejumo of not taking caring of her after he travelled to the United State.
Oluwafunmilayo told the court that she wants divorce because her husband does not love her again, alleging that he has held their only child in his custody.
The Nigerian wife noted that she was in support of their only child living with his husband in abroad but she wants the court to allow her have access to her child after the marriage is dissolved.
She said, “Truly, the defendant is my husband and we have been married for 19-years now and blessed with a child whose name is Kehinde Adejumo, the only child of the union who is in the custody of his father now in America and I am in support of the child in his custody.
“I therefore, urge the court to give me free access to see my son anytime I want to meet him”.
