Court In Ilorin Dissolves 5 Years Old Marriage Over Severe Wife Battering

Date: 2017-10-20
A five-year-old marriage riddled with crisis between Aminat and her husband, Mustapha Abdullahi was on Thursday pronounced dissolved by an Ilorin Area Court.

The court said the constant battering of the woman by the estranged husband was a major plank on which the judgment was based. The petitioner, a resident of Gambari area of Ilorin, told the court that their marriage which was contracted in 2012 had produced one child.

She said that her husband always beat her at the slightest provocation, adding “he failed as a father to take care of his child and me.

"My husband beats me whenever I ask for money for food and I cannot continue with an irresponsible man who did not care for me and the child.

"My Lord, I want an end to this union because I do not love him again," Aminat told the court. She urged the court to grant her the custody of the child and also compel the ex-husband to be responsible for the school fees and feeding of the child.

She said her husband borrowed N32,000 from her and asked the court to help her to collect the money.

Newsmen report that the husband, who was represented by his counsel, Mr Abdullahi Jimba, said he had his authority to accede to the dissolution of the marriage and also agreed to pay for school fees and feeding of the child. He, however, told the court that he was not aware of the issue of debt and asked for another date for hearing on the debt.

In his judgment, the judge, Mr Abdulkadri Ibrahim, dissolved the union and adjourned the case until Nov. 7 for hearing of the debt claim.
