A middle-aged woman, Modinat, on Tuesday told an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court, Agodi, Ibadan, Oyo State, how she alternated two husbands in order to satisfy herself and get enough money to take care of her three children.
The woman, Modinat, begged the court to dissolve her 12-year-old relationship with one of her husbands, Ajadi Mufutau, for alleged lack of care and maltreatment.
She told the court that she met Mufutau in 2005, adding that he impregnated her without marriage formalities, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
She said, “He pretended to be nice. But when he impregnated me, he began beating me whenever I demanded money for antenatal care.
“I left his house after delivery and hooked up with another man, Saheed, who impregnated me two years later, but turned me into a punching bag after delivery of the child for him.
“I decided to date the two of them until they met each other in my rented apartment and fought.
“My Lord, I have decided to divorce Mufutau because he has stopped giving me money for the maintenance of the two kids I had for him since he fought his rival, Saheed, in my apartment,” Modinat said.
Mufutau did not contest the petition for dissolution.
The President of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, dissolved the union.
