MY HUSBAND DEMANDED FOR MY PUBIC HAIR, I REFUSED AND HE BEAT THE HELL OUT OF ME
“I told my sister in-law of my husband’s demand of my pubic hair and she was shocked. She asked him what he purposed to do with it and he stated that it was meant to make concoction for me for safe delivery of my baby,” Taiwo added.“I moved out of his house to that of a friend when he ceased to give me rest but he still came there to threaten me. I, therefore, decided to seek a legal action against him.
“The second time the court bailiff brought him a court summon, I took the court official to where he could be found and hid from him. As I made to leave, he came after me on his motorcycle, tore my clothes and left me naked.
“He held tight my blouse and rained curses on me. As I made an attempt to hold his shirt, he bit my thumb. I spent N9, 000 treating the wound.
“My parents, learning of what transpired between us, called him on phone but he refused to acknowledge their calls.
“He has taken a new wife and I pray the court to please grant me custody of our children and make him responsible for their general welfare, “the plaintiff concluded.
Giving his judgment after he had listened to the plaintiff and considering the fact that the defendant refused to appear in court which according to the court president, Chief Olasunkanmi Agbaje, showed he was no more interested in their wedlock, he dissolved their wedlock.
Ruling, Agbaje gave the plaintiff custody of their three children and ordered the defendant to pay the sum of N12, 000 monthly through the court for their upkeep.
He further mandated the defendant to be responsible for their general welfare with education and health care given utmost priority.
