A 45-year-old trader, Mrs Cecilia Ayayi, approached an Igando Customary Court in Lagos to end her 20-year-old marriage.
According to her, her randy husband has made several attempts to rape her younger sister.
Vanguard reports that Cecilia told the court , yesterday , that her husband, John Ajayi, for who she had three children, had on many occasions attempted to rape her younger sister.
“My sister left our house without any notice, when I called her to know why she packed out she told me that my husband had been trying to rape her whenever I am not at home. “That she had to leave because my husband may succeed in raping her one day,” a discomfited wife said.
The petitioner also accused her husband of infidelity.
