Ado-Ekiti, Dec. 6, 2017 (TNE) A pastor, Adedayo Adeyemo, on Wednesday asked an Ado-Ekiti Customary Court to dissolve the nine-year-old marriage between him and his wife, Kemi for alleged laziness by his spouse.
Apart the from that, the petitioner is seeking dissolution on the grounds his wife lacks care for the children, is incorrigible and loveless.
Adeyemo, 38, who is the pastor of Joint Heir Assembly of God, Ado-Ekiti, told the court that the respondent does not take good care of the house and the children.
He said he had performed all marriage rites including payment of bride price, adding that the marriage had produced two children aged nine and five years.
“My wife is a lazy woman; she does not sweep the house, prepare food for the children or bath the children.
“I cook for the children,’’ he said.
Adeyemo, therefore, prayed the court to dissolve his marriage and award the custody of the two children to him.
The President of the Court, Mrs Olayinka Akomolede, however, adjourned the case till Jan.18, 2018 for further hearing.
