25-yr-old marriage crashes over late meals

By Bartholomew Madukwe

The 25-year-old marriage between Olufade Adekoya, 57, and his wife, Olusola, has been dissolved by an Ikorodu Customary Court in Lagos, over lateness in preparing meals.

President of the court, Olu Adebiyi, dissolved the marriage after noting that there was no longer love in the union.

“The court had tried several times to reconcile their differences, but all efforts proved abortive,” Adebiyi said.

Adekoya told the court he was totally fed up with his wife not cooking for him regularly, adding that when she did, the food came late.

He said: “My wife had failed in her matrimonial obligations. She does not prepare my food on time and I have warned her several times, but she would not listen to me.

“Most times, I go to the canteen to eat when I am hungry. There is no point in harbouring a wife that makes me hungry. I am totally fed up. Please separate us; I am no more interested in the marriage.”

Denying all the allegations, Olusola accused her husband of wanting to take another wife.
