A Customary Court in Igando Lagos has ended a 13-year-old marriage between Mr. Rasak Balogun and a businesswoman, Mrs Oluwabunmi Balogun, over food and sex starvation.
The petitioner, Mr. Abiodun Balogun, 51, an accountant, had filed a suit seeking the dissolution of his 13-year-old marriage to Oluwabunmi for sex starvation. Forty-year-old Mrs Balogun had raised an allegation that her estranged husband attempted to rape their teenage housekeeper.
She equally notified the court, while responding to a divorce suit filed by her husband, Mr Rasak Balogun, that he was a flirt. However, the husband said: “Whenever we had misunderstanding, my wife would deny me sex and food; and for the past six months now, she had not allowed me to make love to her. “My wife was always accusing me of dating any woman she saw in my car. She once trailed me to a place, stopped my car, dragged out the woman inside my car and gave her the beating of her life. “She also beat up one of our tenants, whom she accused of having an affair with me. Because of her behaviour, I ordered her to leave my house and when she refused, I packed out from the house.” Abiodun, therefore, urged the court to dissolve his marriage, saying that he was sick and tired of the marriage. The accountant told the court that the love he once had for Olubunmi had faded.
