“ I found condoms in my wife’s bag and she could not give a satisfactory explanation how she came about it,’’ an estranged hubby told an Ibadan Customary Court just as the court dissolved the seven-year-old marriage on Tuesday.
A Mapo Customary Court dissolved the union between Sikiru Alabi and his wife, Basira, on the grounds of prostitution and adultery.
Alabi, an automobile mechanic in Popo Yemoja area of the metropolis had approached the court, seeking an end to his marriage to Basira, a hairdresser at Idi Arere area of the city.
The President of the court, Mr Ademola Odunade, said cheating on the part of a husband or wife was “deadly’’.
He ruled:“It is in view of the circumstances surrounding the issue at hand that the court decided to put an end to the relationship between Alabi and Basira.
“Alabi shall take custody of the five and a half year-old child produced by the union, while Basira should be free to see the child in court anytime she wants.’’
