The marital union between a 64-year-old man, Amos Akinlolu, and his wife has been dissolved by an Ibadan customary court.
This is coming after Mr Amos had threatened to commit suicide if the marriage was not brought to an end because, according to him, his wife was an “unrepentant adulterer.”
“My lord, peace is now a thing of the past in my family since Funmilayo started making herself a public tap where all men fetch water.
“I can no longer bear living under the same roof with an adulterous wife because she poses a threat to me,” Mr Amos was quoted as saying.
His wife, Funmilayo, however, described her husband’s claim as unsubstantiated.
She told the court that “Akinlolu has never caught any man in bed with me.”
