Divorced couple

She said: “Akin has not paid my dowry in accordance with Yoruba tradition and every effort put across to enable him to pay has proved abortive. He is a very irresponsible person. He does not pay his children’s school fees and he does not provide proper feeding for us in the house. When I fell sick, he did not show any concern. All these have made me lose confidence in him.”

The 34-year-old lady, whose marriage is already blessed with three kids, also asked to be granted custody of their children.

Responding to the divorce plea, Mr Akin, however, opted for settlement outside the court, as he pleaded for time to enable his family and his wife’s family to meet and discuss the issue.
