11-year-old Marriage Dissolved Over Sexual Starvation



A Mapo Customary Court sitting in Ibadan on Thursday dissolved an 11-year-old marriage between Nurudeen Akinpelu and his wife, Folake over sexual starvation and promiscuity.

President of the court, Chief Ademola Odunade while dissolving the marriage granted custody of the two children from the union to the husband, Nurudeen and urged the wife, Folake to avoid further problems with the plaintiff.

‘’If Folake is interested in seeing any of the children, she should approach the court at any time, Odunade said.

The Arabic teacher said his wife had cultivated the habit of starving himnof sex.

‘’My lord, I am completely frustrated with this horrible experiences Folake had made me undergo over the past 11 years of our union.

‘’I discovered that after we had our two children, she started exhibiting strange behaviours such as regularly starving me of sex.

‘’Whenever I ask her for this conjugal rite, Folake pushes me away, telling me to look elsewhere to satisfy my sexual urge.

‘’I kept my calm until one day, when I saw a sheet of paper in her bag she just got from a medical centre stating when the family planning she did will expire.

‘’I decided to keep watching until not too long after I came across another sheet of paper reminding her of the date to commence another family planning method.

‘’My lord, I became mad and wanted to do something dangerous to her’’.

‘’How can a housewife who has not been having sexual intercourse be doing family planning on regular basis.

‘’She stole my children one day and it took me one and a half years to locate them.

‘’I had to report her to the nearest police station where the children were handed back to me, Nurudeen explained.

However, the respondent who agreed to the divorce, could not deny most of gthe allegations levelled against her.

Folake told the court that she was only visiting miracle centres on mountains.

‘’Nurudeen has not been taking good care of me and the children.

‘’He is fond of beating me whenever there is any misunderstanding between us. Folake stated.
