Man Divorces Wife Of 17 Years For Exposing Her Body

By Omobolanle Kougbe


A man has asked a court to dissolve his 17-year marriage to his wife over public nudity claim.

The husband, Minkail Abdul Hammed, 57, told the Igando Customary Court, in Lagos, how the mother of six, Titilayo Abdul-Hammed, often exposed her body publicly in their neigbourhood.

“I bought my wife clothes, but she will never wear them; she prefers to tie wrapper on her chest,” the husband said.

After listening to the plaintiff, court president Adegboyega Omilola decided to dissolve the marriage. Omilola noted that the respondent, Titilayo, had failed to appear in court during proceedings.

“Throughout the duration of this case, the respondent refused to honor court processes. Therefore, the court has no other choice than to dissolve the marriage, Omilola said.

The court also said the former couple is free to individually remarry to whoever they deem fit.
