I Married A Lazy Man, Kwara Woman Begs Court For Divorce

A divorce-seeking housewife, Latifat AbdulYekeen, has claimed that her husband, identified only as AbdulSalam does not want to work.

The woman told the Area Court in Centre-Igboro, Ilorin, Kwara State is avoiding working and has ignored every attempt to help him secure a job.

Narrating her part of the story, “My father had tried on many occasions to get a job for my husband, but he refused to honor his invitation each time he called him.

“He does not want to get a job. Rather, he prefers contracts that will fetch him quick money without much stress.

“His stubborn attitude has caused us a lot, as we hardly eat good food at home, which has made me and our baby to grow thin and look unkempt.

“I left the house four months ago and nobody has asked after me. That is why I want the court to separate us and grant me custody of my child.”

However, the presiding judge, Hammad Ajumobi, stated that a man has the freedom to choose where he works and who he works with and that the petitioner should strive to understand her husband’s attitude.

Ajumobi said the respondent had written to the court, stating that he had been in an accident and would be unable to attend the hearing.

He adjourned the case until January 9, 2024, for hearing.

Meanwhile, a 40 -year-old businessman, Isaiah Gabriel, was on Wednesday arraigned in a Kaduna High Court over an alleged N7.5m fraud.

The Economic and Financial Commission (EFCC), Kaduna branch, charged Gabriel with fraud.

The EFCC counsel, Nasiru Salele, told the court that the defendant committed the offence sometime in June.

Salele alleged that the defendant collected N7.5 million from Williams Victor, to process a Bureau De Change license for him but converted the said money to his personal use.

The prosecutor said that efforts made by the complainant to get the refund of his money from the defendant proved abortive.

He said the offence was contrary to Section 344 and punishable under Section 345 of the Penal Code of Kaduna State.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Justice Amina Bello granted the defendant bail in the sum of N1 million with two sureties in like sum.

Bello ordered that the sureties swear to an affidavit and show evidence of tax clearance in the last three years.
