Rashidat Ogunniyi, a 40-year-old trader has appeared before the Igando Customary Court to seek an end to her 12-year-old marriage on grounds that her husband, Kazeem, loves his dog more than he loves her.
Rashidat, a trader, told the court that her husband was only concerned about the welfare of his dog.
“Kazeem is an irresponsible husband and father. He lacks care and love for me and our children. He only cares about the health, happiness and safety of his dog. He always showers the dog with compliments,” Rashidat said during her cross-examination on Thursday, December 9.
The mother of three also allegeed that Kazeem is domineering and violent.
Kazeem was not in court to respond to the allegations. It was gathered that Kazeem had been served hearing notices several times but he did not show up.
The court president, Adeniyi Koledoye, adjourned the case until Jan. 18 for judgment.
