According to reports in Dailypost, It was a bad day in court as religious leader her left stunned even the Judge was caught unaware as a 63- year-old businesswoman, Mrs Mabel Alli, on Friday pleaded with an Igando Customary Court in Lagos, to end her 41-year-old marriage to her husband, Richard, after revealing shocking details of how he sleeps with their daughters and has impregnated her blood sister.
She told the court that her husband sexually molested all their three daughters and was a womaniser: “After impregnating my sister, he took one of our daughters to the hospital to have an abortion. “My 13-year-old girl also reported to me that he always sneaks into her room to have intercourse with her. “I have caught my husband red handed on top of our third daughter. My friends and domestic staff are not exempted, I have caught with them too,” NAN quoted her as saying.
The petitioner said that her husband was fetish and also wanted to use her for money ritual in order to finance his political ambition: “He has taken me to various herbalists in Badagry, Sango and other places for money ritual; I followed him because he said it was for goodwill. “I stopped following him to herbalists when the last herbalist he took me to asked me to come alone the following day but I went with one of our daughters. “He told me that I should stop following my husband about and should run for my life as he wanted to use me for ritual or make me mad, so he can inherit my properties which include cars and houses. “My husband collects money from me using charms, spent it on his political ambition but he eventually lose the election.
Mabel alleged that her husband does not take care of the children: “Everything rests on me, I shoulder all his responsibilities of feeding the family, paying the children school fees among other responsibilities. ”I beg the court to terminate this union. I am no longer interested because my husband wants to kill me,” she told the court. However, Richard, who denied all the allegations, welcomed the divorce suit, saying he too was no longer interested in the marriage. He claimed that he was the source of his wife’s wealth. After listening to the submissions of the estranged couple, the President of the court, Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, adjourned the case until May 2, for judgment.
In the other news that, another woman named, Ayobami Ogunleye, a trader and mother of three, on Friday told a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve her marriage to Olaniyi because he allegedly raped her 16-year-old daughter. Testifying before Chief Ademola Odunade, the court’s President, Ayobami, who lived at Liberty-Oke-ado area of Ibadan said that her husband raped her 16-year-old daughter whom she had before getting married to Olaniyi, NAN reports.
“If I had known that Olaniyi was heartless, I would not have ventured into marrying him, let alone having children with him. “I caught him red-handed raping my 16-year-old daughter that I had before I married him. “I told Olaniyi in clear tones that I have a female child before he agreed to marry me. “What I saw was that he started disturbing the girl until he eventually raped her. “In fact, that was the reason I sent the girl to her father. “Worst still, Olaniyi is a gambler and a thief. “I kept a cash of N9,500 in a safe in our living room, Olaniyi stole the money to play Niger Bet without anything to show for it. “When I asked him for my money, he started threatening to kill me. “Then, he stabbed me with cutlass and my body is full of different machete cuts now. “I reported him at Iyaganku police station and they advised me to institute a legal action against him in the court of law. “Besides, I acquired a motorcycle for Olaniyi on instalments and he has remained an ingrate. “He doesn’t even take care of the children and I, please separate us,” Ayobami begged the court.
The respondent, who consented to the suit, however denied the allegations levelled against him. Olaniyi, a commercial motorcyclist, submitted that his wife was a notorious prostitute in the neighbourhood: “My lord, it is true that Ayobami brought a female child into my home when I married her, but it is not true that I raped the girl. “She framed all sorts of lies against me after I caught her in adulterous act. “The money I took in the room is actually mine and not hers,” Olaniyi said.
The respondent was, however, silent on the issue of the motorcycle which the plaintiff said she got on instalments for him. The court’s president, Odunade subsequently pronounced the marriage dissolved, citing threat to life as reason: “In the interest of peaceful living, the union between Ayobami and Olaniyi has ceased to be. “Custody of the three children produced by the union is granted to Ayobami and Olaniyi shall pay a monthly allowance of N30,000 for the children’s upkeep in addition to been responsible for their education and other welfare,” the arbitrator said.
