A Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan , Oyo State , on Thursday granted a petition by Mr . Akeem Folorunsho for the dissolution of his two-year marriage on the grounds that his Wife , Fatima, had a habit of stealing.
The News Agency of Nigeria reported that Chief Ademola Odunade , the President of the Court , granted Akeem ’ s prayers .
“Custody of the eight – month-old child produced by the union is granted to Fatima, while Akeem shall pay a monthly allowance of N5 ,000 for the child ’s feeding ,” the arbitrator added .
The petitioner had alleged that his wife threatened his life through constant theft of his money and property .
“Anytime I leave home in search of daily bread , Fatima searches through my clothes ’ pockets to steal my money.
“I give her N 2, 000 every week , in addition to the abundance of food at home, including our baby’ s daily needs .
“Worst still , my lord , after her departure from my home , Fatima suddenly came to my apartment , forcefully pulled off the burglary proof and made away with most of my property including refrigerator , mattress , DVD player , sound system , among others ,” Akeem lamented .
Fatima, a teacher , denied the allegations levelled against her.
She said , “Akeem stopped catering to my needs not minding that I had not fully recovered from the surgery I had to give birth . That was the reason I carried his property to sell in order to sustain myself .”
