One Omolara Lateef on Wednesday approached an Agodi-Ibadan Grade `C’ Customary Court, asking it to dissolve her 15-year marriage to her US-based-husband, Lamidi Lateef.
Omolara told the court that Lamidi had abandoned her and the three children of the marriage for 10 years, saying she was tired of waiting.
The plaintiff, a fashion designer, also said that she had not seen Lateef since he travelled to America in 2007.
According to her, Lateef only made three phone calls to her from the US in 2007.
She said that then, he had pleaded with her to be patient with him, saying he was planning to relocate to another city in America.
“He advised me to relocate to my family home in Kaduna from Ibadan where we were both residing before he travelled.
“But I decided to stay back in Ibadan since I have my job and can take care of myself and the three children comfortably.
“Since then, he had refused to either call or come to Nigeria to see me, while I have not been able to reach him on his cell phone.
“His family members, too, claimed that they could not contact him and there has been no assistance from his relations for the maintenance of our children since he left,” Omolara said.
The plaintiff prayed the court to uphold her request for the dissolution of the union in the absence of the defendant, saying she now wishes to remarry.
The court president, Chief Mukaila Balogun, dissolved the marriage and ordered the plaintiff to continue having the custody of the three children. (NAN)
