A mother of three, Rashidat Nureni, has filed for divorce at a Lagos Customary Court, accusing her husband of abandoning her and their three children for 12 years.
The petitioner told the court that her husband, Ayinla Nureni, who she got married to 18 years ago, abandoned her and their three girls, when he got a job outside Lagos.
She siad, “He only called me for few days and stopped calling. All efforts to reach him proved abortive as his numbers were no longer reachable.
“Whenever I informed his parents that their son was not calling me, they told me that he was busy and that he would call when less busy.His parents told me that he used to communicate with them, but they refused to give me his number.”
Rashidat accused her husband, who failed to appear in court after being summoned several times, of lack of care.
“I have been the one paying the house rent and paying the children’s school fees; he did not call to ask of their wellbeing or visit home.
“His parent never called or asked after the children; anytime I went to them for assistance, they always told me that they did not have money,” she said. The petitioner claimed that the parents-in-law refused to assist her because she gave birth to only girls.
“My mother-in-law used to tell me, even before my husband travelled, that I was not their wife because I did not have a son,” she said.
She prayed the court to dissolve the marriage to enable her to move on.
“I am no longer in love with him,” she added.
The Court adjourned the case to October 25 for further hearing.
