A Customary Court sitting in Ile-Tuntun in Ibadan on Monday dissolved the three-year-old marriage between one Kazeem Adebiyi and his estranged wife, Rukayat on grounds of threat to life.
Delivering judgment, the President of the Court, Henry Agbaje, held that the court dissolved the union to allow peace to reign between Adebiyi and Rukayat.
Agbaje consequently granted custody of the two children to Rukayat and ordered Adebiyi to pay N8,000 as the children’s monthly feeding allowance.
Earlier, Kazeem said that he abandoned his house to his wife because she had made it difficult for him to live with her.
However, Rukayat objected to the suit.
She told the court that she had young children who may suffer if their father part ways with her.
