An Ilorin Area Court on Tuesday [Apr. 16] dissolved the five-year-old marriage between one Aminat Tunde and her husband, Jimoh, over lack of a child in the union.

The 43-year-old house wife had approached the court to dissolve the marriage over   lack of a child in the marriage.

The petitioner, a resident of Fate area of Ilorin, also told the court that her husband was too harsh and fond of placing curses on her.

“My husband always blame me for our situation and at times shouts at me in  public”, she said. According to her, their marriage was contracted in 2008 and was yet to produce any child.

She prayed the court to end the marriage, saying her husband was making life difficult for her.

Her husband did not object to the prayer of his wife, saying, she was free to go. “My wife’s wayward life style has forced me not to have any pity for her situation”, he said.

He prayed the court to grant the prayer of his wife without any claim.

The presiding judge, Mr Ibrahim Abdulquadri, dissolved the marriage and issued a certificate of divorce to the plaintiff.
