My Husband ‘Loves His Dog More Than Me,’ Woman Tells Court

By Agency Report  December 9, 2021

A 40-year-old divorce seeker, Rashidat Ogunniyi, on Thursday, told an Igando Customary Court that her “husband loves his dog more than he loves me.”

Mrs Ogunniyi, 40, who is seeking dissolution of her 12-year-old marriage, told the court that her husband, Kazeem, was only concerned about the welfare of his dog.

“Kazeem is an irresponsible husband and father, he lacks care and love for me and our children.

“He only cares about the health, happiness, and safety of his dog. He always showers the dog with compliments,” Mrs Ogunniyi, a trader, said.

The petitioner also said Kazeem was domineering and violent.

“My husband turned me into a punching bag, he beats me at the slightest provocation.

“There was a day he beat me in public and tore my clothes.

“He once gathered my clothes and wanted to burn them but for timely intervention of our Imam who came to the scene and stopped him,” she said.

The mother of three said she had not been at peace since she got married.

According to her, Kazeem encouraged their children to steal her money and give him so he could buy phones for them.

Mrs Ogunniyi prayed the court to dissolve the marriage, saying that she no longer loved Kazeem.

“I live every minute of my life in fear. Save me from the cruel hands of my husband and grant me the custody of our children,” she prayed.

Kazeem was not in court to respond to the allegations.

It was gathered that Kazeem had been served hearing notices several times but he did not show up.

The Court President, Adeniyi Koledoye, adjourned the case until January 18 for judgment.
