A housewife, Jelila Nurudeen, has called on an Ojaoba Sharia Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State to dissolve her marriage due to sexual starvation.
The mother of three in her petition claimed that her husband, Nurudeen Olanrewaju, was subjecting her to emotional torture by starving her of sex for seven years.
According to Jelila, “My lord, all the interventions made so far by this court has yielded no results as Olanrewaju has turned no new leaf.
“I may soon run mad if the court fails to separate us, because I can no longer withstand seven years of sexual drought.
“Should I start visiting the homes of some of the committee members set up to reconcile us to meet my sexual desire?
“Please I am ready to walk away from this union because Olanrewaju has already remarried to another wife, who is now satisfying his emotional desire.”
But Olanrewaju refused to grant the wife a divorce, saying that he has been living happily with Jelila and promised to still make his wife happy.
After listening to the couple, President of the court, Sheikh Ahamad Tiamiyu, urged them to give peace a chance.
The matter was adjourned till November 17.
