A businesswoman, Latifat Adeleke pleaded with a Mapo Customary Court to dissolve her marriage with her husband, Adetola Adeleke, over alleged s*xual starvation.Latifat, a mother of two, asked the court to end their nine-year-old marriage after declaring that she was “totally fed up.”In her petition to the court, Latifat alleged that Mr Adeleke, a spare parts dealer, aside from neglecting his traditional responsibilities of catering for her and the two children, had no time for her.
“The worst of all, my Lord, is that he has kept away from having s*xual intercourse with me which greatly saddens my heart. We no longer stay together and the bond of love between us has disappeared.”
On his part, Mr Adeleke, told the court that he was ready to part ways with Latifat. He alleged that his wife was adulterous, extravagant and a party enthusiast.
“I once caught her red-handed with her lover on our matrimonial bed. When I asked her if what she did was right or not, there was no remorse, even when it actually happened on our matrimonial home.”
He added, “Please, my Lord, I don’t want her to take custody of the eight and six year-old children, because she doesn’t stay around; Latifat keeps going to parties.”
