"My husband said he would kill me and thereafter commit suicide" - Woman cries out to Court

The president of a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan, High Chief Ademola Odunade, on Monday made void a five-year-old marriage between a man, Mutiu and his wife, Kafayat, over threat of life and oppression on the side of the woman. 

The High Chief awarded the custody of the two children of the marriage to the woman, Kafayat and commanded Mutiu to always pay N8,000 to her for their upkeep.

He also ordered Mutiu to care for the children's education and other important needs.

Kafayat narrated her side of story to the court, saying her husband continually threatened to take her life.

“My lord, life has not been the same with me since Mutiu came into my life due to his oppressive tendencies.

“The most frustrating of his oppressive tendencies was when he forced me to stop working.

“On that day, Mutiu took me to a marabout who informed me that God revealed to him that I should not engage in any form of trade or occupation until I attain the age of 70.

“Mutiu consequently took all my means of livelihood from me.

“As a result, the three big shops that I had before then became empty and I could no longer fend for myself let alone take care of the children because Mutiu refused to be responsible.

“Again, my lord, he took me to the same marabout who told me to produce my pictures and I gave them to him.

“Till date, I can not tell what the marabout did with my pictures.

“All I know is that things have continued to fall apart for me, and my mother has been responsible for my sustenance.

“In fact, Mutiu is fond of threatening to kill me if I ever venture into any trade with or without his knowledge.

“He specifically said that he would kill me and thereafter commit suicide.

“I am tired, please separate us,” Kafayat had pleaded with the court.

Her husband, Mutiu, notwithstanding, failed to show up in court and defend the allegations shot against him despite being served court summons twice.
