Court Stalls Dissolution Of 9 year Old Marriage

Court Stalls Dissolution Of 9 year Old Marriage

A customary Court in Oshodi has adjourned till August 10,  2012 a suit filed by Mrs.Nkechinyere Oluma Obi seeking dissolution of her nine-year-old marriage contracted under the native law and which has produced four children.

The petitioner said she filed the suit on the grounds that the “respondent is married to another woman, desertion by her husband and their children, regular assault and that there was no more love to sustain the union.”

The petitioner confirmed to the court that the respondent had got her accommodation but that it was not well- furnished. She said there was no good furniture, no good stove, and that the television did not receive signals because it had no antenna.

She agreed there was a mattress and fan in the new place. She also told the court that the respondent refused to pay N10, 000.00 as monthly maintenance allowance but was paying N5,000.00. The respondent, Mr. Chukwudi Obi, a trader, told the court he would still furnish the apartment but that his place of business had been demolished and he was yet to pick up once more.

She also ordered that the furniture should be good and an antenna be installed for the television set before the next sitting.
