Woman Seeks Divorce As Husband Denies Second Son’s Paternity

A 29-year-old woman identified as Mrs Olaide Ojikutu, on earlier today urged an Igando Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve her five-year marriage because her husband allegedly denied the paternity of their second son.

Ojikutu told the court that her husband, Olufemi, with whom she had her two sons, said he was not the father of their second son.

In her words:

“When I was pregnant with my second son, my husband saw me chatting with my male schoolmate friend on Facebook and accused me of dating him.

“He told me that he will not accept the baby because he believed that the man I was chatting with impregnated me.

“My husband refused to accept the baby so my family took up the responsibility of the child.

“The baby is now two years and my husband still refused to pay for his feeding and school fees.”

Olaide said her husband was envious of men being around her and prevented her from working so that other men would not go after her.

“I got a job at a bank but my husband did not allow me to work. I also got jobs in other places but he still would not allow me work.

“He is always monitoring my movement; if I go out and does not come home before 4 p.m., he locks me out,” she said.

She alleged that her husband had always been unfaithful and whenever she tried to caution him he beats her.

“My husband is a womaniser and an alcoholic, who dates women irrespective of their size or colour and anytime I tried to query him he beats me,” she said.

She begged the court to dissolve the marriage as she was no longer interested in the union.

The respondent, however, did not appear in court after being served with the summon.

The Court President, Mr Adegboyega Omilola ordered the bailiff to reserve the respondent notice of hearing before the next adjourned date (July 12).
