Wife Loses 22-Year Marriage For Wearing Trousers
A 42-year-old housewife, Fatimot Abiola, on Wednesday in Lagos lost her 22-year marriage to her husband, Rasheed, for wearing trousers against her husband’s wish.
Delivering the judgment, the President of Igando Customary Court, Lagos, Mr. Akin Akinniyi, said it appeared that the estranged couple were tired of the marriage and all efforts to reconcile both parties had failed.
“Since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.
“The court pronounced the marriage between Mr. Rasheed Abiola and Mrs. Fatimot dissolved, both parties henceforth cease to be husband and wife.
Abiola had earlier told the court that his wife wears trousers which he had warned her several times to desist from, but she refused.
“My mother and I had warned Fatimot several times to stop wearing trousers, but she will not listen. I can no longer cope with her way of life and her defiant attitude,” he said.
