A Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan on Friday has dissolved a marriage of seven years due to sex starvation.
The petitioner, Mr Wahab Olabanmiji, had approached the court to seek the dissolution of the marriage because his wife identified as Tawakalitu, denied him of sex for years.
Wahab who lives at Olopo-Meta Estate, Ibadan, had petitioned the court that his wife was endangering his life with her extramarital relationships.
He said, “Tawakalitu has remained a source of frustration to me for two-and-a half years now, denying me of sex.
“All my efforts at changing her attitude for good have yielded no result as she has become a pain in my neck.
“In addition, Tawakalitu is heavily involved in adulterous acts and I have caught her many times.
“Worst still, she has been having grudges with my children from my first wife. she doesn’t want to see them as she has not hidden her hatred for them.
“I no longer want to have anything to do with her, please separate us,” Wahab urged the court.
In her response, Tawakalitu agreed to the divorce and did not deny the allegation of sexual starvation leveled against her.
Tawakalitu, however, said that she was acting on a medical advice.
