A woman, named Jelila Nurudeen, says her husband, Nurudeen Olanrewaju, has not had sex with her in seven years. Jelila adds that her husband has taken another wife, with whom he fulfills “his emotional desire”.
Distraught, the mother of three has decided pull the stop on her marriage to Olarenwaju. She told an Ojaoba Sharia Court, in Ibadan, Oyo State, that her husband had tortured her emotionally and seeks a divorce from him.
“My lord, all the interventions made so far by this court has yielded no results as Olanrewaju has turned no new leaf.
“I may soon run mad if the court fails to separate us, because I can no longer withstand seven years of sexual drought.
“Please I am ready to walk away from this union because Olanrewaju has already remarried to another wife, who is now satisfying his emotional desire,” Jelila explained.
However, Olanrewaju, a staff of Nigeria Tobacco Company, Ibadan, denied the allegations. He also rejected the divorce suit, while claiming they had been happily married.
The President of the court, Ahmad Tiamiyu advised the couple to settle their differences amicably before adjourning the case till November 17, for a progress report.
