Must read

An Ilorin Area Court on Tuesday, June 10, 2014 dissolved a three-year-old marriage over a husband’s drunken habit.

A housewife, Memunat Wahab, had approached the court for the dissolution of her marriage to Yusuf Wahab, alleging that he was fond of drinking alcohol.

“My husband drinks to stupour and shouts every night in the street, thus disturbing the peace of the environment.

“His drunken behaviour has made some of our neighbours to believe that my husband is mentally sick, which is not so,’’ she said.

Memunat, who resides in Adabata area of Ilorin, said the marriage was contracted in 2011 and was yet to produce any child.

“My Lord, I want an end to this marriage because I am tired of his drunken habit, and I can no more cope with the shame and humiliation he has brought to the family name,’’ she complained.

Wahab did not object to his wife’s prayer, saying that Memunat has no respect for him as was expected of her.

“I cannot beg her to stay because she knows I drink before she agreed to my proposal,’’ he said, and prayed the court to grant her prayer without any claim.
