I starved him of sex because he is wayward, wife tells court

An Ado-Ekiti Customary Court on Wednesday dissolved a 12-year-old marriage on the grounds of constant fighting and ‎lack of care for the children.

CourtThe court granted the petition of Mr. Julius Ajala, who accused his wife, Kemi, of lack of respect, lack of care for their children and denial of sex.

Julius, 50‎, also submitted that Kemi was lazy.

He told the court that he was tired of the union and needed divorce to avoid constant quarrel with Kemi.

In her response, 48-year-old‎ Kemi did not deny the allegations but submitted that Julius constantly beat her over flimsy reasons.

The mother of two said that the petitioner usually destroyed her wares – food stuff – whenever she returned late from market.

She told the court that she deliberately starved Julius of sex because of his wayward lifestyle.

The President of the Court, Mrs Olayinka Akomolede, held that the marriage had broken down irretrievably, and consequently dissolved it.

She granted custody of the female child of the marriage, aged 11, to Kemi and gave the custody of the nine-year- old son to Julius.

‎Akomolede ordered Julius to pay N4,000‎ monthly to Kemi for the feeding of the female child, adding that the man should be responsible for the education of the children.

She ordered the wife to release the girl on holiday to her father who must return her a week before school resumption.

She granted access to both parties ‎to visit the children between 8a.m. and 6p.m.

The divorce suit first came up for mention on Oct.12, 2016.
