A Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan on Friday dissolved a 12-year-old marriage between Itunun Osin and estranged husband, Kehinde over his refusal to get a job and cater for his children.
In a petition, Osin prayed the court for a divorce on grounds that Kehinde was a lazy and irresponsible husband.
Delivering judgment, the President of the court, Ademola Odunade, held that the marriage between Osin and Kehinde was dissolved because they failed to give peace a chance.
Odunade awarded custody of the two children to Osin and ordered Kehinde to pay N10,000 as monthly allowance.
The arbitrator also ordered Kehinde to pay N20,000 as compensation for damaging Osin’s phone.
The respondent consented to the suit and gave reasons for his actions.
Kehinde, a commercial motorcyclist however, argued that his wife was an example of a bad woman.
