An Ado-Ekiti customary court has on Wednesday, January 11, dissolved a 12-year-old marriage on the grounds of constant fighting and lack of care for the children.
NAN reports that Mr. Julius Ajala had accused his wife, Kemi, of not allowing him sleep with her, lack of respect and lack of care for their children. According to the 50-year-old man, his wife is lazy. He petitioned the court, saying he was tired of the union, hence, the need for the divorce.
In her response, 48-year-old Kemi did not deny the allegations but submitted that Julius constantly beat her over little things. She went on to reveal that she refused to sleep with him because he is wayward.

The president of the court, Mrs Olayinka Akomolede, held that the marriage had broken down irretrievably, and consequently dissolved it. She granted custody of the female child of the marriage, aged 11, to Kemi and gave the custody of the nine-year- old son to Julius.
Akomolede ordered Julius to pay N4,000 monthly to Kemi for the feeding of the female child, adding that the man should be responsible for the education of the children. She ordered the wife to release the girl on holiday to her father who must return her a week before school resumption.
She granted access to both parties to visit the children between 8a.m. and 6p.m.
