A fashion designer, Opeyemi Bakare, told a Customary Court in Mapo, Ibadan, that her husband forced her into adultery.

She said while testifying, that her husband of 13 years, Olawale, nags, beats, and threatens her regularly.

Opeyemi said she often flirts with men, but then gives out her husband’s number when they demand for hers, but when the treatment at home became unbearable, she gave in to their advances.

She said, ”I confess that I flirt with different men. At first, whenever men ask for my number, I give them my husband’s mobile phone number so that they will not approach me again.

“However, when Olawale’s attitude became aggressive, I had to look for another man who could take good care of me and who would not expose me to hunger and thirst.

“When he got to know that I was dating another man, Olawale poured petrol on me with the intention to burn me alive but he couldn’t lay his hands on matches at that time, maybe I would have been dead by now.

“Besides, he doesn’t respect my mother.”

Her husband, Olawale, denied the allegations, claiming she was wayward, and prayed the court not to dissolve the union.

He said, “She also nags and insults me, using unprintable names. I also informed her parents about her waywardness.

“I make sure that I provide for her and my three children. For the sake of the children, please don’t separate us,” Olawale pleaded.

The marriage was, however, dissolved by the presiding magistrate, Chief Ademola Odunade.

The court cited threat to life as grounds for it’s dissolution, and awarded custody of the three children to the mother, Opeyemi Bakare.

The defendant was also ordered to pay a monthly feeding allowance of N15,000, and take responsibility for their education and welfare.
