According to NAN, Kafilat Musiliu, a housewife on Thursday asked an Ibadan Customary Court in Ile Tuntun area, to dissolve her five-year old marriage, because her husband rendered her barren by conspiring with the doctors to remove her womb, without her knowledge.
“My lord, Musiliu has systematically rendered me barren, because I can no longer conceive due to the removal of my womb during a caesarean surgery when I was trying to deliver my first child.” She said.
“While in the hospital, he should have informed any of my relatives that for me to have a safe delivery, my womb must be removed.”
“It is not until recently that Musiliu wanted to be having sexual intercourse with me that he directed me to go for family planning.”
“Then, medical personnel told me that I no longer have womb.” She narrates.
“Worst still, Musiliu is a drunkard and insensitive in all aspect of life,’’ Kafilat said
Husband Rejects Divorce From Barren Wife
On the other hand, Musiliu Raji did not refuse the allegations, however he opposed the divorce and pleaded with the court not to grant the divorce.
“My lord, it is true that her womb was removed but the doctor informed me that her womb had already been damaged and the only option was total removal for her safe delivery.” He said
He went ahead to explain why he was silent, saying that“The doctor also advised me not to let her know until over a year when she could bear the pain,” said Musiliu who lives with Kafilat at Ologuneru area of Ibadan.”
However, the court president Mr Henric Agbaje dissolved the marriage on the note that, it was evident that there was no more love between the couple.
He also awarded the custody of their four-year-old son to Kafilat and directed Musiliu to provide N4, 000 monthly allowance for his upkeep, in addition to being responsible for their child’s education.
