A Woman at Mapo customary court in Ibadan on Friday has begged for her 10-year-old marriage with her Civil Engineer husband Kazeem.
The woman who is identified as Fatimoh Azeez plead with the court following a divorce suit filed by his husband on claims that Fatinoh wants to ruin his life.
“My Lord, little did I know that I was inviting the devil into my house when I married Fatimoh 10 years ago.
“As soon as she got into my house as a wife, Fatimoh, started showing the stuff she is made of by tormenting and fighting me and my first wife.
“In fact, nobody in this court can stop her anytime she is ready to fight. As I speak My Lord, Fatimoh has already driven out my first wife with her children,”
Azeez, who lives at Ayegun-Olomi area of Ibadan, told the court.
“I have sworn not to have anything to do with her again because she is threatening my life and she is highly disobedient and unwilling to take instructions from me.”
Apart from fighting him all the time, Azeez said Fatimoh, had also caused disharmony in the family.
Responding to all his allegations against her, Fatimoh objected and said.
“My Lord, it is true that Kazeem and I have had some misunderstandings and he is largely responsible for the misunderstandings.
“My husband, Kazeem, says he does not want me to be pregnant again; he enjoys having sex with me but does not want to hear that I am pregnant.
“Anytime I told him that I missed my period, Kazeem will quarrel with me and that is the major problem between us.
“I don’t fight or beat his first wife except that she usually look for my trouble. “However, my lord, please give me a chance to correct my bad attitudes and I promise that within the next few weeks or months, my husband will have cause to tell you good news about me.”
Reprimanding the wife, the President of the court Mr Ademola Odunade told Fatimoh to make everything possible to bring the other wife back to the family.
He further said.
“I can assure you that as soon as you make amends, your husband, Kazeem, will be happy and he will settle this matter amicably.”
The meeting was further adjourned until Sept. 26 for further hearing.
