Ikorodu (Lagos) – A 39-year-old fashion designer, Mrs Farotimi Titilayo, has pleaded with an Ikorodu Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve her eight-year-old marriage on grounds of sexual denial and neglect.
Titilayo, who resides at Nosiru St., Eyita, Ikorodu, told the court that her husband, Amos, grossly denied her sex before they deserted each other.
“My husband was sexually imbalance before I left him in 2011; I reported him to his family but they pleaded on his behalf.
“I bought him drugs to correct his sexual weakness but he refused to take them.
“We have been living separately for over four years now because he refused to find solution to his problems.
“I want this court to officially divorce this marriage because I want to move on with my life; I don’t want to bear his name anymore,’’ she said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the respondent was not in court even after having been said to have been served the court’s notices three times.
The Court President, Mr Olu Adebiyi, said that the court could not continue to delay hearing of the case as the respondent had been absent at proceedings several times.
He, however, said “we will still serve the husband one more time to see if he will attend the next court date.’’
Adebiyi adjourned the case to Sept. 2.
