An Idi-ogungun Customary Court, Agodi, Ibadan has dissolved the marriage between Funke Adeyemi and her husband Wasiu Adeyemi on grounds that the husband has ran away from home because of N24,ooo unpaid rent on their apartment.
The 29-year-old Funke, told the court that her husband of 12 years ran away from home when the landlord demanded for Payment of the outstanding rent, leaving her and their three children.
She said that the defendant have not been seen since June, 2017 and have refused to pay the debt.
”The landlord has ejected me from the house and I have been living with my parents since then.
“All efforts to contact him proved abortive and I have been shouldering the responsibility of the three kids alone.
“I pray the court to dissolve our union and order him to be responsible to his paternal roles,” she pleaded.
The defendant was not in court to defend the allegation, but the court registrar said that he (Adeyemi) was duly served the court summon.
President of the Court, Mukaila Balogun, said that evidence before him, coupled with the deliberate non-appearance of the defendant in court, had proved that there was no more love in the union.
