‘My husband assaults me for  childlessness’

From Fasusi Martins, Okitipupa
A middle-age woman, Mrs Enitetu Gbenro,  has approached  an Okitipupa  Court  seeking  the dissolution of her 11-years-old marriage, over what she described as total neglect, cruelty and ill-treatment by her husband due to her in ability to have  child .

Enitetu, a staff  of  the Okitipupa Local Government, narrated  to the court how she had series of miscarriages as a result of  her husband’s  undue pressure and beatings.

According to her,  there was a time she under went a caesarian  operation  to deliver a baby,  but unfortunately  she had a  still birth .

Aggreived and not satisfied with the situation, she pleaded with the court  for a separation with her  estranged husband, Mr. Kayode Enitetu,  so as to live  her life in peace and quietness.

During cross  examination,  the respondent, Kayode Enitetu,  did not controvert the allegations against him. But he   pleaded  with the court that he would  amend  his ways, blaming the devil  for  some of his conducts.

In his judgement,  the presiding magistrate,  Mr. Adedeji. O. Adebisi said, ” it is worthy of note that the court cannot compel an unwilling and  suffering party  in a marriage to continue to suffer in the marriage.  More so,  when the party responsible for the suffering has not successfully been able to rebut the claim that the petitioner is suffering under him “

Adedeji  pointed out  that not granting the prayers of the petitioner may lead to further exceptional hardship and depravity .

He concluded that  the marriage had  failed and broken down irretrievably,  as the petitioner has discharged the burden of proving that she had long suffered and endured for several years.
