I want Divorce Because My Husband Calls me Barren – Woman Tells Court
A 40-year-old housewife, Temidayo Amosa, on Friday told an Igando Customary Court, in Lagos that she had decided to seek divorce because her husband, Omotosho called her barren.
She told the court that she has been married to the 70-year-old Omotosho for nine years.
She said: “In January 2017, my husband sent me a text, calling me barren. He ordered me to leave his house. He said he was no longer interested in me.
“I pleaded with him to divorce me so that I can move on with my life, because age is no longer on my side, but he refused,” she said.
Amosa prayed the court to dissolve the marriage.
Responding, Omotosho prayed the court to grant his wife’s prayer.
“I do not love her anymore, please grant her request. I have six children and some of my children are abroad. I don’t even need a child from her,” the respondent said.
After listening to the both parties, President of the Court, Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, adjourned the case until Oct. 24 for judgment.
