I CAN’T COPE: Woman files for divorce over ‘7-year denial of sex’
Jelila Nurudeen, a housewife, says she may soon run mad over sexual starvation for over seven years.
Jelila approached an Ojaoba Sharia court, Ibadan, Oyo state, on Friday, seeking to put an end to the union with her husband.
The mother of three alleged that her husband was subjecting her to emotional torture.
“My lord, all the interventions made so far by this court has yielded no results as Olanrewaju has turned no new leaf,” she said.
“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.”
Denying the allegations, Olanrewaju, who works at Nigeria Tobacco Company, Ibadan, rejected the divorce suit.
He said he had been living happily with Jelila and promised to still make his wife happy.
In his ruling, Ahamad Tiamiyu, president of the court, advised Jelila to give peace a chance by allowing the committee raised on the matter to look into the matter.
Tiamiyu adjourned the case to November 17, for progress report.
