A 30-year-old housewife, Balikis Abdullahi, has told an Ilorin Area Court that she married a figure head and irresponsible man as husband.
Balikisto, a residence of Alagbado Area, Ilorin, made this known when she testified in her divorce proceedings against her husband,Saka, on Tuesday.
“I want an end to this marriage because I cannot continue with a figure head and irresponsible man that left all his responsibility for me.
“He has abandoned me and the children for two years without providing for me and my children. No food, no money, and he always beat me whenever I asked for our needs,” Balikis said.
She said the marriage was contracted in 2006 and blessed with two children, Lukman and Abdullahi.
The petitioner urged the court to dissolve the 10-year-old marriage citing lack of care for and the children, adding that she was no longer in love anymore.
Balikis prayed the court to compel the respondent to pay her N10,000 as monthly upkeep allowance .
Saka did not object to the prayer of his wife, adding that he was tired of her troublesome behaviour.
He also that he could not avoid paying the upkeep allowance, but told the court to order her to pay the children school fees
The Area court judge, Mr Abdulqudri Ibrahim, adjourned the case till Nov. 2 for continuation.
