A 39-year-old fashion designer, Mrs Farotimi Titilayo, has appealed to a Lagos Customary Court sitting in Ikorodu to dissolve her eight-year-old marriage over alleged neglect and sexual denial by her husband, according to a report in the Daily Post.
The Petitioner, who resides at Nosiru Street, Eyita in Ikorodu area of the State told the court that her husband identified as Amos, denies her sex before they both separated.
“My husband was sexually imbalance before I left him in 2011; I reported him to his family but they pleaded on his behalf.
“I bought him drugs to correct his sexual weakness but he refused to take them.
“We have been living separately for over four years now because he refused to find solution to his problems.
“I want this court to officially divorce this marriage because I want to move on with my life; I don’t want to bear his name anymore,’’ she said.
The respondent was, however, not in court despite been served the court’s notices on three different occasions.
In his ruling, the Court President, Mr Olu Adebiyi, noted that the court would not continue to delay hearing of the case as Amos has been absent from proceedings severally.
He added “we will still serve the husband one more time to see if he will attend the next court date.’’
Adebiyi adjourned the case to September 2.
