He should choose either me or his bottles of beer

By Wahab Abdulah
AN official of the West African Examination Council (WAEC), Mrs. Modupeola Toyin Omolade is presently up in arm against her husband, Mr. Temitope Omolade, over  alleged drunkenness and failure to to live up to his financial obligation to the family.

The woman, a resident of No. 37, Anthony Otti Street, Lagos said she got married to the man 20 years ago and they lived  together without any hassle until   the man chose to get married to  beer and pepper soup which led to his abandoning       his responsibilities to his family.

Mrs Omolade said rather than taking care of the family, her husband daily gathers    his friends at a nearby bar and  splash his salary on drink and pepper soup .

Modupeola who said both of them separated in  June 2007 when her husband left her for Benin on transfer    said that he has   refused to take care of their children. She said that his daily routine was to drink himself to stupor and and beat her silly when he gets home.

Their marriage is blessed with four children namely; Seun (m) 20 years, Olaide (m) 16 years, Ife (f) 15 years and Bolutife (f) 9 years. She urged the court to compel her husband to take care of    at least one of their four children.

However, in his defence, the man told the court that the woman was unnerved when he threatened to investigate her relationship with a neighbour.

The man who was represented by a lawyer- Mrs. Olayinka Abiola, said though he got the court’s summon late, told the  court that he had once challenged her (petitioner) over a     a text message  he read in her phone.

But the counsel, promised that despite    what has happened she would still intervene to settle the disagreement between the couple.

She requested for three weeks from the court to enable her settle the matter with the couple, promising to inform the court of latest development.

The matter was adjourned by the court for  further hearing.
