My husband steals my money always, wife tells court
A housewife, Mary Eniola, on Monday told an Agodi Customary Court, Ibadan, that her husband, Kazeem, habitually stole her money all through the 15 years of their marriage.
Mary made this known when she testified in a divorce proceedings she brought against her husband.
She said that her 15-year-old union with Kazeem was characterised with habitual stealing of her money and act of irresponsibility from him.
“I shouldered the responsibility as regards feeding, school fees payment and other welfare of the kids, instead of him to appreciate my struggle for the care, he was in the habit of stealing my money.
“He beat me as he likes and parked out of our matrimonial home to impregnate another woman outside.
“Your Honour, I am tired of his shameful acts, victimisation and embarrassment,” she said.
Kazeem, denied all the allegations and pleaded with the court not to grant the divorce request of his wife.
He said that he had nobody to assist in catering for the three children if the divorce suit was granted.
The President of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, granted the divorce, holding that there was no love between them.
Balogun awarded custody of the three children to Mary and directed the respondent to be pay N9,000 monthly for the maintenance of the three kids. (NAN)
