Arabic teacher drags wife to court for disrespecting senior wife

COURT-LOGOA divorce-seeking Arabic teacher, Alfa Gasali Gafaru, on Friday dragged his second wife, Rashidat, before an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court for disrespecting him and his senior wife

In his testimony before the court, Gafaru described the defendant as a troublesome woman who has no respect for him and his first wife.

”I married her four years ago when I had the misunderstanding with my first wife.

”But trouble started when my first wife returned home after we resolved our dispute.

”Rashidat always curses me and my senior wife without recognising me as the head of the family.

”I, therefore, urge the court to dissolve my relationship with her and I pledge to pay my dues as regards upkeep of the two kids of the marriage.

‘ ‘ The court should separate us to avoid the temptation of harming her due to her provocative behaviour.” Gafaru said.

Rashidat, 37, in her defence, urged the court not to grant the petitioner’s request for the divorce, saying she was nursing a month-old baby.

She accused her husband of conspiring with his senior wife to frustrate her out of her matrimonial home.

The defendant denied ever cursing her husband and his senior wife, adding that ”he is the one that treats me like a slave.”

The President of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, held that although the defendant was tired of the marriage, he noted that “the plaintiff had proven in his statement of readiness to quit the marriage.’’

Balogun, therefore, dissolved the marriage and ordered a monthly payment of N8,000 by the petitioner to the defendant, as upkeep allowance for the two children of the union.

He further ordered the plaintiff to pay N5,000 to the defendant as the cost to enable her pack her belongings from his house and an additional N12,000 to enable her to secure an accommodation.
