.Loses 40 Years Old Marriage –

By Nike Adekunle –

A 70-year-old welder, Mr Jimoh Ayinla, has successfully obtained a divorce from his 60-year-old wife, Anike, after she got impregnated by her lover while still legally married to and living with him, reports.

An Igando Customary Court in Lagos on Wednesday, 18 January, 2017, officially dissolved the marriage after Ayinla sued for divorce on grounds of adultery.

Delivering his judgment, the court president, Mr Adegboyega Omilola said he was convinced that the couple could no longer live together as the petitioner insisted on divorce after several interventions.

“The court has no choice than to dissolve the union in spite of the fact that the wife still claims she loves her husband.

“The court pronounced the marriage between Jimoh Ayinla and Anike Ayinla dissolved today, both parties henceforth ceased to be husband and wife.

“Both are free to go your separate ways without any hindrances and molestation,” Omilola ruled. Earlier, Ayinla, had approached the court seeking to dissolve his 40-year-old marriage over wife’s infidelity.

“My wife is adulterous and that led to her being impregnated by another man in her matrimonial home.

“She just disappeared from my house to an unknown destination, I did not know that she was pregnant until she gave birth later in her new man’s house,” he said.

The petitioner said that after 10 years that his wife had left her matrimonial home and refused to return, he had to marry another wife in 2013.

“I married another wife because our children that used to cook for me had all married and I was getting older to cook for myself.

“It was after I had remarried that my wife returned to our home and I had to accommodate her.

“But, I rejected the child she bore for another man asking her to send the child back to her father,” he said.

According to him, Anike had been fighting him and his second wife since she returned to her matrimonial home.

“Anike was always engaging my younger wife in physical fight on daily basis and I am afraid she might kill her one day. She always slaps me whenever we have heated argument,” Jimoh told the court.

He alleged that Anike would leave the house for weeks or months without his consent and whenever he queried her, she fights him.

The petitioner, therefore, pleaded with the court for the dissolution of his 40-year-old marriage, saying there was no more love in the relationship.

However, Anike, 60, trader, who did not deny the allegations, said she was pushed into the act because her husband was in the habit of constantly assaulting her.

“It was my husband that pushed me to finding solace and comfort in another man because he was always beating me,” she said.

The mother of eight, however, begged the court not to grant her husband’s application for divorce saying she was still in love with him.
