Judge Annuls 11 Year Old Marriage Over Adultery And Theft Accusations..

An eleven-year-old marriage between Risikat Kadiri and her husband, Muheem Kadiri was dissolved at Badagry Customary Court in Lagos on Wednesday over infidelity and theft.

Risikat, a 41-year-old trader told the court that apart from numerous cases of his following women around, her husband used to sneak into their maid’s room to sleep with her.

“I am aware that my husband flirted with different women, but I was surprised the day I saw him having s#xual intercourse with our housemaid, Taiwo Ogunlade.

“I had to send the maid away before he impregnated her.
“Apart from this, my husband was in a relationship with a widow who lived close to our house.
“Muheem connected our generator light to the woman’s room through a hidden conduit hole, such that each time we put on our generator, she would be supplied.

“This woman used to pass the night with my husband, taking the advantage of proximity of his room to her own.
“I did not know this until I packed out of his house and later discovered that the woman had packed in as his wife,” she said.

The petitioner also alleged that Muheem used to steal her money.
“My husband is a thief; he has the habit of stealing my money. If I put money inside my safe, he would enter my room and steal N20, 000 or more in between the bundles.
“But if i asked him, he always confessed taking it in some occasions,” she said.
The respondent, however, denied all the allegations and said he was a responsible man.

The 51-year-old petroleum dealer said he did not have anything with a widow nor had any sexual intercourse with their housemaid.
He however confirmed that he used to take the petitioner’s money whenever he was broke.

Muheem said he was not interested in the marriage and asked the court to give Risikat the custody of their two children until they attain 18 years.
Delivering the judgement, the court president, Mr Sakirudeen Adekola dissolved the marriage on the ground of mutual consent.

He said “Since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.

“Both of you henceforth cease to be husband and wife, each of you should go on his or her separate ways unmolested.

“The custody of the two children of the union is hereby granted to the petitioner as the respondent did not contend for their custody.
“The respondent is hereby ordered to pay a sum of N20, 000 on monthly basis for the upkeep of the children in the custody of the petitioner, which must be channeled through the court.

“Muheem shall be responsible for the school fees and medical bills of the children as obtained in government school and hospital respectively unless otherwise mutually agreed.

“Violation of any of the orders of this court shall be deemed contempt of court and shall be so treated with appropriate sanction.”

    16 The Lord, the God of Israel, says, “I hate divorce, and I hate the cruel things that men do. So protect your spiritual unity. Don’t cheat on your wife.”

  2. Woman confidently chopping another womans husband in same compound... abi them plan kill her husband, good this woman left oh b4 story change colour

  3. Another broken home.... When love goes sour

  4. This court tried to make the man pay both school and hospital bills with 20,000 unlike those yeye courts that will be giving 5k

  5. The things we hear on daily about marriage scares the shit out of me

  6. I was a victim of this. In fact, this sounds like my story. Down to the generator just that she wasn’t a widow and he never touched househelp but brought all sorts int The house, neighbors and all.

  7. its better than one murdering the other

  8. Please lawyers in the house how does divorce work in Nigeria? Do you just sign and divorce is over or you have to be tried and what not...l am asking for awa friends waiting for paper to be signed by awa other friend who is very busy.

    1. 😂😂😂😂😂 I’m telling you. Me too I’m also wondering o. That Niyi guy just insulted the intelligence of Nigerians with that fake claim, taking advantage of the cluelessness/dumbness of a lot of Nigerians because even after many lawyers commented that nobody signs divorce papers in Nigeria, the courts need to decide etc after much deliberation. A lot of people were still shouting up and down that she should sign the divorce papers and let the guy go. Me sef come confuse for the matter

    2. Lol tanku jare...nigerians on IG are quite reactive,sentimental and misinformed about a lot of basic polices and knowledge. It shows how much the education system has failed.
