Court grants man’s prayer to divorce his 2 `troublesome’ wives

By Aminat Mohammed

An Idi-Ape Customary Court sitting in Ibadan on Wednesday dissolved the marriage between a man, Moruff Ajayi and his two wives, Suliyat and Kudirat, on grounds of irresponsible acts on the part of the wives.

Ivotesng.com reports that Ajayi married Suliyat, 26 years ago and Kudirat, 16 years ago.

The President of the court, Mr Moses Oyekanmi, who granted the prayers of Ajayi, due to irreconcilable differences with his two wives, also ordered that Suliyat and Kudirat be each served with a copy of the judgment.

Ivotesng.com reports that Ajayi had told the court that he sent his two wives packing from his home in 2017 when he could no longer bear their “troublesome behaviours”.

”My wives are fond of quarreling. I have no peace of mind. Whenever any member of my family intervenes, they do not listen.

‘Please separate me from my two wives. Since I sent them packing, I have been taking care of my children,” he said.

Ivotesng.com gathered that the two defendants were, however, not in court in spite of being summoned three times each.
