A Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan on Tuesday dissolved a 15-year-old marriage between one Mr Akanmu Kasali and his ninth wife, Mujidat, over allegations of threat to life.
Mujidat approached the court with claims that her husband was wicked and troublesome.
She told the court presided over by Chief Ademola Odunade that she had suffered enough in the marriage and was no longer in love with Kasali with whom she had three children.
“My lord, he beats me at will; he once locked me and the children inside a room at night. “I have every reason to believe that he intends to kill me and the children; if not, why would he put poison in the food I was cooking. He is a threat to my life.
