A father of five, Olayiwola Ajao, on Tuesday urged a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve his 43-year-old marriage to his wife, Mojisola over alleged misbehaviour. Ajao, who told the court that he was tired of the marriage,

added: “Mojisola does not take to my instructions and chooses to do whatever pleases her.

“Whenever, she leaves home in the morning, she does not return until late in the night.She is too quarrelsome not only with me but also with those in the neighbourhood.

“Many people have intervened in the past, urging me to continue to be patient with her but I can no longer cope with her.

“Her late father even knew that she was troublesome and four out of the five children approved of the dissolution if it would bring peace,” Ajao said.

In her reply, Mojisola urged the court not to grant her husband’s application, saying “I still love him’’. She told the court that Ajao lied against her but she still want to continue to live awith him.

“Ajao even wanted to kill me in December 2013, I am not troublesome,” Mojisola said.

Tawakalitu, one of the children in court, prayed the court not to dissolve the marriage.

“My mother has been suffering all this while for my father, please, help to save the marriage,” Tawakalitu pleaded.

The President of the court, Mr. Ezekiel Ogundipe, said the other four children would testify whether or not they wanted the marriage to be dissolved.

Ogundipe adjourned the case to April 1, 2014 for further hearing.
