Olamide Lawal, mother of three, on Friday pleaded with a Grade ‘A’ Customary Court in Mapo, Ibadan to grant her divorce on the grounds that her husband, Saheed Lawal, had excess sex with her.
In her petition, Olamide, who lives in Ibadan, also accused her husband of being a drunk.
“Lawal and I have been married for 14 years now. He is an unrepentant drunk who has no human kindness in him. He devotes his time to beer consumption, beating and forcing me to have sex with him. He does not provide for my children. I cannot stand him anymore,” she said.
The unhappy wife further pleaded with the court to restrain her husband from calling her mobile phone or visiting her apartment.
Lawal, however, prayed the court to pacify his wife to remain with him.
“I am remorseful and turned my life around. I have stopped drinking alcohol. I am ready to start giving the children feeding money,” Lawal, a fashion designer, said.
The President of the Court, who adjourned the matter until March 1 for judgment, advised the couple to maintain peace.
