Court dissolves 8 years marriage over battering

An Osogbo Customary Court on Thursday dissolved the eight years marriage between Kadijat and her estrange husband, Sikiru Olawale, over alleged battering.

Kadijat told the court that her husband, a photographer, usually beat her whenever he was drunk, adding that he does not care for their children.

Kadijat, a business woman, also alleged that her estrange husband had abandoned his responsibilities to his family.

She said that she was the one taking care of the children and paying their school fees.

“My husband use to beat me and my children whenever he is drunk.

“I pay the school fees of our kids and feed the family but that is not enough reason for him not to beat me,’’ she said.

The defendant did not make appearance in court.

In her ruling, the President of the court, Chief Bolarinwa Popoola, dissolved the marriage.

She said that the dissolution was with immediate effect.
