ISIOMA Irene Keyamo, wife of popular Lagos based human rights lawyer, Festus Adeniyi Keyamo, has asked for a court order mandating her husband to pay the sum of N20 million as alimony at the Probate and Family division, of the Lagos High Court sitting in Ikeja on Monday.

The money is expected to be a compensation for the psychological trauma, financial losses, sense of disappointment and her failure at the Nigerian Law School, as a result of the breach of contract of marriage between them.

She had earlier asked the court for an extension of time, to file her answer to the petition, filed by her husband for the dissolution of their marriage.

She is also seeking an order deeming the already filed and served, answer and cross petition marked as Exhibit A as properly filed and served.

Isioma made the request through her counsel, Mr. Jonathan Ogunsanya, from the office of the public defender, who told the court that he had a motion on notice dated November 11, 2009, which he wanted to move and the court allowed him since there was no objection on the part of the applicant.

Justice Elfreda Williams-Dawodu granted the order, but asked counsel for both parties if there were no outstanding issues, between the couple before a trial date was fixed as demanded by Gloria Oahajaguan, counsel for Festus Keyamo.

Justice Williams-Dawodu, however, informed the parties that before a trial date for dissolution of marriage would be fixed, all outstanding issues between the couple must be resolved.

She consequently ordered for a compulsory conference between the parties to settle the issue of cost of maintenance, among other such issues, before commencement of trial.

She subsequently adjourned the case till January 27, 2010.

its cool to stand up for ur right. i no blame the woman, so guys if u think of marrying a woman with  the intention of leaving her later u sld consider this. if i were in the womans sheoes, i will use all i have to make the man penniless. if the guy wnt a divorce, he sld be ready to pay for his action, 3/4 of nigerian dnt wnt to marry sm1 who is divorce, so the guy better settle her. i love taking this kind of cases.
p.s jst saying ma mind. dnt insult me. please
