A petty trader, Mrs. Molade Owolabi, on Thursday lost her 11-year-old marriage to alleged adultery, as an Igando Customary Court in Lagos granted her estranged husband, Tayo’s request to dissolve the union.
The Court President, Mr. Koledoye Adeniyi, held that it appeared that the couple was tired of the marriage as efforts to reconcile them failed.
“Since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.
“The court hereby pronounces the marriage between Mr. Tayo Owolabi and Mrs Molade Owolabi dissolved today; both of you henceforth cease to be husband and wife.
“Each of you should go his or her separate way unmolested; the court wishes both of you well in your future endeavours,” he said.
