“My wife didn’t tell me she had 3 children before marrying me’

*Says ‘my wife wants to destroy my life’

After just one year of marriage, an Ibadan-based welder, Quozeem Owolabi, has dragged his wife, Tunrayo, before a customary court at Ile-Tuntun, Ibadan, Oyo State, to end their marriage.

He told the stunned court that his wife did not tell him that she had three children for another man before agreeing to marry him.

He also accused his wife of refusing to be observing  both the Muslim prayers and Ramadan fast, contrary to what she promised him before they married.

The petitioner told the court that Tunrayo had lied to him that she had only one child for another man before he married her, only for him to discover later that she actually had three.

The young man, who said he was yet to have any child, alleged that the respondent had “frustrated” all his efforts to impregnate her.

“She is ready to destroy my life because she had had babies for another man already.

“In recent times, she has been leaving home in the morning and returning late at night.

“These are the reasons I wish to divorce her,” he said.

Tunrayo, who consented to the divorce, denied all the allegations Owolabi levelled against her.

She said, “This man beats hell out of me often.

“He gives me and my children only N300 daily.

“I treated him with my money when he was ill, but when I fell ill, he didn’t care about me.”

The president of the court, Henry Agbaje, adjourned judgment on the matter till September 30, 2020.
