A-64-year old man, Mr. Femi Eboda, prayed  an Agege Grade ‘A’  Customary  Court sitting in Lagos to  dissolve his 21-year-old marriage to Bolanle Eboda over stealing and embarrassing him publicly.

Mr. Eboda, who lives at No, 14 Amusan, Oko-Oba,  Abule Egba, claimed to have been suffering from stroke, diabetes and ulcer  for the past two years, saying the wife failed to take care of him.

Saying he resigned from Union Bank some years ago because of  ill-health, the husband  said his health challenges were  compounded by his wife and his family. He said  his efforts  to ensure that  his children got  good education  were frustrated by Bolanle. While  reacting to the allegations, the wife  urged the court to beg her husband on her behalf. She denied the allegations but said she  not ready for divorce.

She said the marriage was been blessed with two children and her husband should consider her and resolve it. In his rulling, the court president, Mr. Emmanuel Shokunle, asked  the couple to go back home and see how to settle it amicably because the woman still believed in the marriage. He adjourned the case till August 13 for further hearing.
