An Ado-Ekiti Customary Court on Friday dissolved a 14-year-old marriage between Amaka Nwafor,36; and her husband, Friday Nwafor,47, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

The President of the Court, Mrs Olayinka Akomolede, dissolved the marriage on the grounds of constant fighting and beating, public disgrace, threats to life, and no regard for the wife’s family by the respondent.

Akomolede in her judgment also observed that the marriage had broken down irretrievably.

Akomolede ruled that the custody of the four children produced by the union should be awarded to the petitioner.

She also ruled that the respondent should be paying N2,000 as the monthly feeding allowance on each of the children.

Akomolede added that both parties should be responsible for the education of their children.

NAN reports that Amaka, 36; a resident of Oke-Bola in Ado-Ekiti, had told the court during its proceedings that her husband was fond of disgracing her whenever he sighted her.

She said that he usually accused her of returning from her man friend’s house.

According to the petitioner, she works really hard to fend for herself; adding that the man has neglected her.

Amaka confessed to having a man friend, adding that it was her husband who pushed her into it, because he did not take care of her.
