My adulterous wife is negatively affecting my daughter - Court denies herbalist's divorce plea

 Herbalist Kasali Yinusa has begged a Mapo Grade "A" Customary Court in Ibadan to end his nine-year marriage to his estranged wife Abosede on the grounds that their daughter is suffering because of her adulterous lifestyle.

Yunusa claimed that Abosede was irritable and occasionally got into fights with neighbors.

"What bothers me the most is how much Abosede has corrupted our lone child. I've noticed that the child acts a little rudely everytime she comes to see me since Abosede and the child no longer reside with me.

"Abosede is an excessive waste. I fill her store with merchandise, but when the sales are over, she throws away the money," he claimed.

As a result, the petitioner pleaded for custody of the child. On the majority of the opposing points of contention, however, Abosede remained silent. The trader Abosede made the observation that her husband had never been a decent father.

"He won't cover our child's tuition. In fact, my desire for supernatural intervention led me to begin attending church.

"Whenever my infant sings religious hymns, he becomes irate. My lord, Yinusa beats me up anytime he demands money from me and I can't give it.

In addition, I am his sixth wife. When I was three months pregnant, he got married to someone else," Abosede claimed.

S.M. Akintayo, the court president, delivered the ruling and stated that maintained that since Yinusa and Abosede's union was not founded on customary norms at first, there was no marriage between them that needed to be dissolved.

None of the parties mentioned that gifts or the payment of a bride price had been exchanged, which are prerequisites for a conventional marriage to be deemed lawful.

She said, "A man and a woman are not married just because they live together and have children."

Because Abosede was better able to care for the seven-year-old, Akintayo gave her custody of the youngster. The judge upheld the injunction prohibiting the respondent from contacting, intimidating, or meddling in the petitioner's private affairs going forward.
