Court dissolves 9-year old marriage in Ibadan

The nine years old marriage between Muideen Akinyemi and Maroofat has been dissolved over disobedience, disrespect and laziness.

President of Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan, Mr Ademola Odunade, dissolved the marriage on Wednesday.

Odunade held that the court had no option but to put an end to the union between Muideen and Maroofat because the duo refused any amicable settlement.

He granted Maroofat custody of the two children while Muideen was ordered to pay a monthly feeding allowance of N5,000 for the children in addition to being responsible for their education and welfare.

“Muideen shall also pay N12, 000 for one year accommodation for Maroofat and the children as well as N3,000 for the movement of her belongings”, the arbitrator stated.

Muideen had told the court that his wife was highly disobedient, a trouble maker, highly disrespectful and lazy.

Maroofat said that the plaintiff was such an ingrate and irresponsible husband.

“My lord, Muideen is such an ingrate because I risked all that I have in my life to ensure that he becomes successful educationally and in his career”, she said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that Muideen is a building contractor and resides at Iwo road while Maroofat is a trader and resides at New Gbagi area of Ibadan.
