A housewife, identified as Fatimah Jimoh, on Thursday has called on an Area Court in Ilorin, to grant her request of divorce from her husband of eight years, Amosa, on the charges that he hits her and does not provide money for food.
The petitioner alleged that her husband beats her for no just reason. My husband beats me every time. Every argument will prompt him to beat me. ”
He doe not provide money for feeding. He is not taking care of me and the children. He is not playing his fatherly role as expected, ‘ she told the court.
She also prayed the court to grant her custody of the four children and sought for an order of court compelling Amosa to pay N20,000 monthly as feeding allowance for the children.
The defendant was absent from the court to respond to the allegation.
The Presiding Judge, Mr Abdulhameed Aliyu, however, adjourned the case until March 25, for the continuation of hearing and for the defendant to appear in court.
