‘My husband doesn’t want to work’ – Divorce-seeking wife tells court

Latifat AbdulYekeen, a housewife, has asked an Area Court in Centre-Igboro, Ilorin, to dissolve her marriage, citing her husband’s inability to find work for himself.

The petitioner told the court that her husband, AbdulSalam, did not want to work for money and did not want to be supported in finding work.

“My father had tried on many occasions to get a job for my husband, but he refused to honor his invitation each time he called him.

“He does not want to get a job. Rather, he prefers contracts that will fetch him quick money without much stress.

“His stubborn attitude has caused us a lot, as we hardly eat good food at home, which has made me and our baby to grow thin and look unkempt.

“I left the house four months ago and nobody has asked after me. That is why I want the court to separate us and grant me custody of my child,” she said.

However, the presiding judge, Hammad Ajumobi, stated that a man has the freedom to choose where he works and who he works with and that the petitioner should strive to understand her husband’s attitude.

Ajumobi said the respondent had written to the court, stating that he had been in an accident and would be unable to attend the hearing.

He adjourned the case until January 9, 2024, for hearing.
