My Husband Beats Me Constantly, Woman Tells Court

Oluwatoyin Adebogun has urged Agege Customary Court in Lagos to annul her 5 years marriage with Taiwo Adebogun over constant abuse.

Oluwatoyin, who is a former optician, told the court that she is ready to divorce her husband. She said he was fond of beating her at every slight provocation after which he apologises.

”He would beat me for no reason and after then apologize. I have told his Family members of which they are not in support of him, the last one he did, he stabbed me with a screwdriver in my ear to which I was rushed to the hospital and then begged me later.

”Asides that I have received numerous number of punches and I have bruises all over my body. My mum is an evangelist and this divorce has caused an uproar and a disgrace in church. I can’t put up with him again,” she said.

She also revealed that he brought his girlfriend to pass the night at their matrimonial home. She claimed his aunt supported her decision and had urged her to leave before he kills her.

The judge, Ibironke Elabo, adjourned the case to 24 July.
