IBADAN—A divorce-seeking woman, Folasade Olaniyan, has told an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court, Agodi in Ibadan, Oyo State that her husband, Ojo Olaniyan, filmed her while making love with him. She also told the court that her husband also went ahead and leaked the video to his friends and family members.
Folasade, 37, approached the court for dissolution of her 15-year-old union with Olaniyan over brutality and lack of trust. She also told the court that her husband did not care for the four kids of the union, threatened her life and also smoked Indian hemp. In her testimony before the court, yesterday, the plaintiff narrated how Olaniyan constantly accused her of having extra marital affairs. She said: “I am a food vendor but he is always suspicious of me and accuses me of sleeping with my customers. “When he could not establish evidence on the allegation, he filmed my nakedness while both of us were having sex in our apartment. “To my surprise, he leaked the pictures to neighbours and my parents that he caught me in a hotel with one of my customers. “I was ashamed and embarrassed that the father of my four kids could do such a thing,” she said. Punching bag Folashade also told the court that her husband turned her to a punching bag whenever he took Indian hemp. “Moreover, he never caters for our four kids, I shoulder the responsibility of caring for the children alone,” she submitted. She begged the court to dissolve the marriage to avoid untimely death and free her from his brutality and unwarranted embarrassment.
The President of the court, Mr Mukaila Balogun, noted that the respondent was not in court in spite of the fact that he received court summon twice. Balogun, therefore, pronounced the dissolution of the marriage and granted custody of the four children to the plaintiff. The president also ordered the respondent to pay N12, 000 monthly for the upkeep of the four children. He said the respondent should be served a copy of the judgment and also restrained him from further harassment of the plaintiff. Related
