My Wife infected me with gonorrhea, I caught her in hotels & beer parlours with men

An Ado-Ekiti Customary Court in Ekiti State yesterday dissolved a 16-year-old marriage between a motorcycle and generator mechanic, Mr. Fatai Ganiyu, and his wife, Modupe.

The President of the court, Mr. Joseph Ogunsemi, observed that the marriage had broken down irretrievably and consequently dissolved it.

He awarded the custody of the male child who was 13-year-old to the petitioner, while the custody of the two female children was awarded to the respondent.

Ogunsemi ordered the petitioner to pay N2,000 as monthly feeding allowance on each of the two children beginning from end of May.

He also ruled that the petitioner would be responsible for the education of the three children at all levels.

Ogunsemi also granted unrestricted access to both parties to visit the children in their custody.

Ganiyu, 35, had approached the court for the dissolution of his on grounds of adultery, lack of care for him and the children, threat to life and lack of respect for him.

The petitioner cited instances where he caught the respondent in hotels and beer parlours with men.

The father of three told the court that he contacted gonorrhoea from the respondent as a result of her wayward lifestyle.

According to him, whenever the respondent leaves the house, she abandons her children without preparing food for them.

He told the court that the respondent did not respect his mother, adding that whenever he queried her for her bad attitude, she would threaten him with a knife.
