A 32-year-old housewife, Esther Adetuyi, has approached an Ado-Ekiti Customary Court seeking dissolution of her sevenyear- old marriage to her husband, Ajayi, for frequently placing curses on her.
Esther is seeking the dissolution on grounds of alleged desertion, regular curses on her and her family as well as lack of care for her and the only child.
Esther, a resident of Ado-Ekiti, told the court that her husband had abandoned her and their child in the past two years when he relocated to Lagos.
She said he told her to relocate with him, but that she could not live with his family members.
The mother of one said there was a day her brother called to tell her that her husband was raining curses on him and their mother, accusing them of being behind her refusal to relocate with him.
According to her, whenever her husband visited Ado-Ekiti, he always threatened that misfortunes would befall her if she refused to hand over their child to him.
Esther further alleged that her husband was not taking care of her and their child since he left them, saying she had been responsible for the child’s welfare with her meagre salary.
She claimed that whenever she called him for the child’s school fees, he would refuse to pay until the child was returned to him.
Esther said that he told her that he would not attend the court’s proceedings because he had married another woman.
She, therefore, prayed the court to dissolve the marriage and grant her the custody of the child.
The Court’s President, Mrs Olayinka Akomolede, adjourned the case to November 3 for judgment.
