An Igando Customary Court in Nigeria’s Lagos state on Wednesday dissolved the 10-year marriage between a Nigerian couple after the wife convincingly proved to the court that she had caught her husband “sucking the breasts of” her “niece” among others acts of infidelity.

Florence Anyasi reportedly petitioned the court to separate the union between her and Stanley Anyasi, saying: “My husband is a womaniser, he used to leave me in the bed at night and sneak into my maid’s room. I have caught him severally on my maid’s bed sexually assaulting her.

“A neighbour approached me and told me to warn my husband to desist from asking her daughter to have love affairs with him.

“I once caught him sucking the breasts of my niece, who is a minor and he is also fond of wooing my friends.”

She added that when she confronted Stanley Anyasi over his conducts, he cruelly poisoned her and she “was rushed to the hospital by neighbours” before it was detected that the food I just ate had been poisoned.”

The 36-year-old mother of three and trader further alleged that her husband is not only irresponsible, but also violently assaults her.

However, the respondent, debunked the woman’s claims. He said: “In January 2017 she came home with a car of N1 million, when I queried her where she got the car from, she claimed she bought it with her money.

“I strongly disagreed with her because she is only selling foodstuffs and can never afford that kind of a car.”

The 40-year-old man added: “I came home from work and discovered that my wife had packed all her belonging out with the children to start living with her lover.

“I called her severally, she refused to pick but she eventually picked my call last January and informed me that our last baby she delivered in May 2017 was not mine that the child belonged to the man she is presently living with.

“Before she even gave birth and packed out of my house, I always received information from people that they saw my wife in hotel with men but I always ignored them.”

After all efforts to reconcile the couple had failed, the court presided over by Akin Akinniyi dissolved the marriage.

It said: “Since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.

“The court hereby pronounces the marriage between Mrs Florence Anyasi and Mr Stanley Anyasi dissolved today.

“Both of you henceforth cease to be husband and wife, each of you should go on his or her separate ways unmolested.

“The court wishes both of you well in your new journey of life.

“The court grants the custody of the children, age 10, 8, 6 respectively to their mother, the petitioner, pending when they attain the age of 18 years to decide who to stay with.

“The respondent must be responsible for the children’s school fees, medical bills and must be paying N15,000 monthly for the children’s feeding which must be channeled through the court.”
