Titilayo Akaba, a 43-year-old housewife, today pleaded with a Badagry Customary Court in Topo Garage, to end her marriage to Maselin Akada, accusing him of being an habitual gossip and liar.
Titilayo, who is a food vendor and resides at Baale Street, Torikoh, Badagry, said she had spent a night in police custody because her husband lies alot.
“I met Maselin in 1997 and we both married without my parents’ consent because he was 30 years older than me.
“No dowry was paid and I have three children for him.
“He did not give me rest of mind and he talks too much at his age.
“Maselin will be rolling on the ground, crying that I have stolen and hidden his documents whereas he is lying.
“My husband went to Area K Police Command in Morogbo to report me that I sent hired killers and badoo boys to kill him.
“They transferred the case to Badagry Police Station, where I was detained for 24 hours for what I did not do.
“My lord, I don’t have rest of mind staying under the same roof with this man, he is a liar,”
Titilayo pleaded with the court to grant her custody of the three children, and alleged that Madelin was old and had vision challenge.
However, the respondent did not show up in court
The court’s President, Mr Sakirudeen Adekola, adjourned the case until Oct.9 for further hearing.
