An Agege Customary Court in Lagos State on Wednesday dissolved the six – year marriage of a businesswoman , Kemi Olomu, over lack of love, laziness and gossiping by her husband, Bamidele .
The President of the court , Mrs Patricia Adeyanju , held that the marriage of Kemi , 39, and Bamidele , an electrician , was irretrievable.
She told the parties to go their separate ways in the interest of peace .
“The court grants the plea of the petitioner and, therefore , dissolves the union between her and her husband , Bamidele .
“ They shall cease to be husband and wife ; both parties are ordered to go their separate ways without any threat to life or blackmail, ’’ Adeyanju held.
Reports that Kemi filed for divorce on November 6 , 2018 , saying that Bamidele was uncaring , irresponsible and a gossip.
She said that she was fed up with the marriage .
“ My husband does not have a job and is not even bothered .
“ All he does is to gossip about in the neighbourhood which l find detestable .
“ There was a time he brought his friend and family members to live with us in our one – room apartment.
“l am tired of shouldering responsibilities at home , ” she said .
Kemi also told the court that Bamidele deceived her into the marriage by not telling her he never went to school .
“ It was later l discovered my husband never had any formal education . ”
Bamidele , however, denied the allegations and urged the court not to dissolve the union .
He told the court that he still loved Kemi .
“ I still love my wife , I don’ t want divorce.
“ l always try within my means to pay our son ’ s school fees and take care his other needs, ’’ he said .
