My husband is under his mother’s tutelage, wife tells court

Date:

A housewife, Iyabo Olatunji , has told an Akure Customary Court that her husband, Ezekiel, is still under his mother’s tutelage.

Iyabo also said her husband is an alcoholic and batters her at will without any caution from his mother.

Iyabo, made this known while testifying in her divorce proceedings on Friday.

She said, “My husband was working by his mother’s directive.

“It is my mother-in-law that gives us food and my husband will not do anything except waiting for his mother’s money.

“The worst part is that my mother-in-law will not tell her son to stop beating me.”

She begged the court to dissolve her five-year-old marriage to Ezekiel for alleged intake of excessive alcohol.

The complainant said that she could no longer tolerate the constant beating she got whenever her spouse was drunk.

According to her, the alcoholic intake has rendered the Respondent irrational in the way he treats her.

She appealed to the court to award custody of the only child of the marriage to her.

Ruling on the case, the President of the court, Mr Rotimi Olusanya, said the repeated refusal of the Respondent’s appearance in court would not stop the proceedings.

Olusanya adjourned the case till Sept. 27 for judgment.
