I’m maintaining my complexion, not bleaching, wife tells court

A 55-year-old businessman, Mr Ademola Kolawole, on Friday secured dissolution of his 16-year-old marriage, following granting of his petition by an Igando Customary Court in Lagos.

The Court President, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, held that Ademola was adamant in spite of efforts of the court and family members to save his marriage to Kudirat, aged 39.

He said, “Since the petitioner insisted on the divorce, the court has no choice than to dissolve the union in spite of the wife’s claim that she still loves him.

“Both parties henceforth cease to be husband and wife.

“Both are free to go their separate ways without any hindrance and molestation.”

Ademola had sought divorce over alleged infidelity on the part of Kudirat.

He claimed that Kudirat was dating a road transport worker.

“Most times, she sleeps in her lover’s house, abandoning the children and me.

“Her lover sent her to Mecca in 2014 without my consent.

“Because of her adulterous nature, I stopped making love to her since 2014.

“My wife lovers used to attack me with dangerous weapons in public, I am afraid they may kill me one day.”

Ademola added that his wife converted to another religion without his consent and changed her complexion by bleaching.

He told the court that he no longer loved Kudirat.

In her response, Kudirat, however, denied the allegation of infidelity, saying that she had been faithful to Ademola.

“I am not having an affair with any man neither did I sleep in any man’s house,” the mother of four said.

She submitted that she changed her religion because she was born into the religion she changed to, adding that she was not bleaching her skin but maintaining her complexion.

She said that she still loved Kolawole, and prayed the court to save the union.
