Court Grants Wife Divorces Because Husband Fed Children Alcohol

A Customary Court in Ibadan on Friday dissolved a five-year-old marriage between Mufuliat Soremekun and Abas, her husband, on grounds that he feeds his children with an alcoholic beverage.
In her petition, Soremekun, a fashion designer had told the court that she gave up on the marriage because her husband had made up his mind to turn their two children to alcoholics.

The President of the court, Chief Ademola Odunade, who led two other Arbitrators; Alhaji Suleiman Apanpa and Alhaji Rafiu Raji, reluctantly dissolved the union.

Odunade awarded custody of the two children to the petitioner and ordered that the defendant to pay N5,000 to each of the two children for their upkeep in addition to being responsible for their education and welfare.

He advised ‘intending couples’ to do some extra work to know everything about their partners-to-be before going into marriage.

Earlier, the petitioner, alleged that her husband was a drunk and a sadist.

“I am tired of warning Abas to stop consuming alcohol which he inherited from his father. I have high Blood Pressure because of the stress I went through with him.

”Worst still, Abas feeds our two children with alcohol beverage or beer, children of four years and below,” Mufuliat said.
