A 35-year old trader, Afusat Usman, has approached an Agege Customary Court, Lagos, southwest Nigeria, seeking the dissolution of their 11-year old marriage over her husband's inability to satisfy her sexually.
Afusat, a resident of 21, Akinremi Street, Oke-Aro, while giving the reasons why she wanted to dissolve her 11-year marriage with her husband, Bashiru Usman, said her hubby cheats on her. During the court session, Afusat informed the court that her husband does not have sex with her regularly and that she sleeps alone.
According to her, Bashiru always cheats on her just as she informed that he planned to marry a second wife claiming the woman gives him good luck.
The trader and mother of one claimed that her husband does not care for her and their child and that she has been the one responsible for the upkeep of the home.
"When we didn't have any child, I was the only one running around. He never cared," she narrated.
But Bashir, a 43-year old surveyor, said he does not want the court to dissolve their marriage.
He said that he still loves his wife and her decision to quit was because of her mother's influence.
According to him, his mother-in-law never wanted him to marry her daughter and she does not like him. He said that he has been struggling to make ends meet and that his wife has been there for him.
He said that he wanted to marry a second wife but since his wife refused he shelved the idea. The Court President adjourned the case and advised them to be sure of what they want.
They were also advised to think about their child before making any decisions.
