A Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan on Friday dissolved the seven-year-old marriage between Abiola Giwa and estranged husband, Adebimpe on grounds of abandonment.
In her petition, Giwa, a mother of one, prayed for divorce because she said her husband abandoned her for four years.
Delivering judgment, the President of the court, Ademola Odunade, dissolved the marriage in the interest of peace.
Odunade held that the court was left with no option than to dissolve the marriage since Adebimpe consented to the divorce request by his wife.
He awarded custody of the only child to Giwa and ordered Adebimpe to pay N5,000 as the child’s monthly feeding allowance.
