An Igando Customary Court in Lagos has dissolved a 16-year-old marriage on adultery charges, filed by the husband against his wife, saying he could no longer tolerate her infidelity.

The court’s President, Adeniyi Koledoye, granted the prayer and dissolved the marriage.

Koledoye said that since the petitioner had insisted on divorce, after several interventions, the court was left with no option than to grant him his prayer, despite his wife’s claim that she still loved him.

He ordered Ola to pay a severance of N150,000 to his wife for her to move on with her life.

Earlier, the husband, Sola Ola, had petitioned the court, seeking dissolution of his marriage over his wife’s adulterous act.

According to the petitioner, since that day, his wife had refused to return home.

The 55-year-old civil servant said Tola was troublesome and frequently fought with him and their neighbours, adding that she was also uncaring as she allowed her children to go to school without food.

Responding, 50-year-old Tola, the mother of three children, denied being wayward and promiscuous, saying, she had never had any extra-marital affairs.

She submitted that Sola became hostile to her since he married another wife.
