Commercial motorcyclist wants divorce from ‘over-sleeping’ wife

Okada-motorcyclistsA commercial motorcyclist, Moses Ayodeji, 40, on Wednesday pleaded with an Ojo Customary Court to dissolve his 10-year-old marriage because of his wife’s tendency to ‘over-sleep’.

The complainant also alleged that his wife, Kehinde, always denied him his marital right at night.

“I shaved my wife’s pubic hairs while she slept one day, which goes to show that she actually over-sleeps.

“She does not respond like someone actually making love when we even do it.

“I am no longer interested in our marriage because she also denies me my right as her husband.

“I don’t want to continue with a woman that fights me whenever I correct her,” he said

He added that the respondent had accused him of wanting to use her pubic hairs for rituals.

“She dragged me before the Odua Peoples Congress (OPC) men and made me to swear that I didn’t nurse the intention to using her for rituals.

“The swearing indicated that I will lose my life in seven days if the accusation was correct but that didn’t happen,’’ he said.

He urged the court to dissolve the marriage, which had been blessed with two children, saying he was willing to pay N3, 000 monthly as upkeep allowance for the care of the children.

He also said that the court could give Kehinde custody of the children.
The President of the court, Chief Joseph Ogunmola, adjourned the case to Sept. 1 for further hearing.

    When did she start oversleeping? This could be a medical condition or the lady is overworked and is often tired at the end of the day. I hope the judge will be enlightened enough to explore these possibilities before rendering judgment.
