Narrating his part of the story, Abideen, a civil servant, explained that his wife derived pleasure in beating him up. He said she loves threatening him with dangerous weapons not until the the day she tore his flesh with a broken bottle.
The magistrate court has dissolved the marriage between Abideen and Kudirat Adekola “in the interest of peace and order’’ and the custody of four out of the five children is hereby awarded to Abideen, while Kudirat is allowed to go with the last, who is still a minor.
The president of the court gave a verdict that the father shall pay a monthly feeding allowance of N5,000 for the upkeep of the last child,”
