My husband compared me to goats, wife tells court | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

A woman, Aderonke Ojediran, on Monday, approached a Grade C Customary Court, Agodi-Ibadan in Oyo State, to seek for dissolution of her five-year-old marriage with Oyeleke Ojediran, for allegedly comparing her with goats.

Ojediran also complained that she was seeking for divorce because Oyeleke had refused to pay her bride pride and had been threatening her life.

Another reason for the divorce, the plaintiff said, was the lack of care for the only child of the union.

She told the court that “ I packed out of my husband’s residence in 2013 when I could no longer cope with the behaviour of my husband.”

According to her, sometime in 2013, her husband brought goats inside their sitting room and compared her with the animals, saying she is the same as the goats.

“He used to beat me and had been careless about my welfare and that of the innocent child we have. In fact, I am tired of the marriage and I don’t want to die young.

The woman further prayed the court to allow her to take custody of the child for proper care.

The defendant, who admitted that he brought two goats inside the sitting room, explained that he compared his wife with the goats because of her bad attitude.

He also agreed with the divorce suit, alleging also that the plaintiff’s troublesome way of life was responsible for his hypertensive health condition.

The President of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, then declared the marriage dissolved.

He said “having listened to the evidence of both parties, it is clear that there is no more love between the couple and they should go their separate ways as they stand unmarried.

“Custody of the only child of the union is to remain with the plaintiff and the sum of N3,000 is awarded against the defendant on monthly basis, being money for the upkeep of the child.”

  1. Yoruba's and their fuckaholic! Haba! Someone has not paid your bride price and you are living with him and calling him husband and having child for him. I think that under customary law self the marriage never existed then was was the President of the court then dissolving?Yoruba's are so obsessed with sex and having children that they care little about what family is supposed to be. It is a pity!

    1. Mr Biafran we know that your generation represents everything abominable including having sex with mother and daughters

    2. I would have supported your line of argument totally except that you brought tribalism into it.

  2. There was no marriage in the first place, therefore the matter should not have been court issues.No bride price paid, no Union of marriage existed but sex union between the two. The judged presided well

    1. TJb you stop been a sterotype person, make comments don't say yoruba again because most young does fat n set, including you TJ.

    2. Only traditional, court, mosque & church conducted marriages can be dissolved.
      However, in most situations, the a guy and a lady would just be living together and would be calling themselves 'husband & wife'. This has to stop.
