"She is Troublesome" He Said, ‘My husband denied me sex for five years’ - Wife
Mrs. Modupe Falola, in a divorce case filed by her husband told Agege Grade A Customary that her husband, Mr. Falilu Falola, denied her sex for five years.
She claimed that trouble started when her husband returned from church one day and on the advice of his prophet, told her that she was suffering from a generational curse which she had to pray fervently about for deliverance.
She added that her husband took advantage of what he heard from his prophet to treat her badly. “ I was heavily pregnant then and immediately I delivered the baby, my husband stopped having sex with me and as well stopped giving me money for the upkeep of the only child of the marriage”, the defendant in the case of divorce instituted by her husband stated. That ever since he had treated her bad and all efforts by her parents to reconcile them did not yield good result
The petitioner on his part claimed that he was deceived into the marriage by his friend whom Modupe worked for as secretary. That she was troublesome and she quarrels with neighbors and even his house boy had to leave in annoyance
Falilu vowed that even if the court paved the way for settlement, he had made up his mind not to have anything to do with her “because we are not compatible”. “ I stopped having sex with her five years ago, because of her bad behaviour; besides, Modupe is not friendly with the children l had from my previous marriage”.
He prays the court to dissolve the marriage and grant him custody of the only child of the union.
The case has been adjoined to August 7, 2012 for further hearing
