On Monday, 11th of July, 2016, a father of four, Musiliu Yusuf, who alleged that his wife, Hassana Yusuf sleeps around with landlords and was impregnated by one of her lovers in their matrimonial home, told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos that he ran away from home just to save his life as his wife always beats him on any slight provocation.
According to reports from Punch, the 50-year-old man narrates while testifying in a divorce suit instituted by his wife:
“My wife committed adultery, she got pregnant for one of her lovers in our matrimonial home.
“My wife is promiscuous; my fellow landlords are her boyfriends. She got pregnant for one of them, they mock and make a jest of me whenever they see me.
“I stopped making love to her in June 2014 due to her infidelity and in 2015 she told me she was pregnant.

“I rejected the pregnancy and even after delivery of the baby, I refused to care for her because the baby is not mine.
”I packed out from the house I built on four different occasions because I fear for my life as my wife always beat me on any slight provocation.
“I finally ran out on June 14, 2015, and refused to go back just to save my life because I don’t want to die,” he said.
Speaking in the court, the 39-year-old wife, also a teacher, who filed the suit said that her husband threatened to kill her in order to inherit what they both acquired.
“He threatened to kill me so that he can take over what we both laboured for. He always boasts that nobody will question him if he kills me.
“We jointly bought a coaster bus and two plots of land. We used a plot to build a house, the other a school,” she said.
Musiliu said that contrary to his wife’s testimony that they both built the house and school, he never collected any money from her.
He also presented all the title documents of the properties which were in his name, as exhibits.
Hassana continues, she said that her husband was in the habit of accusing her of infidelity.
“My husband is suspicious of my moves; every man I talk to is my boyfriend. He has no trust, whatsoever in me,” the estranged wife said.
She added that her husband packed out of their home without any notice to an unknown destination.
“On many occasions, he had abandoned me and the children. He once left the house for a year,” she said.
The mother of four said that because she refused to grant her husband loan, he rejected her fourth child from pregnancy.
The President of the court, Adegboyega Omilola, said that it appeared that the estranged couple were tired of the marriage and all efforts to reconcile both parties had failed.
The president then ruled: “Since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.
“The court pronounces the marriage between Hassana Yusuf and Musiliu Yusuf dissolved today; both parties henceforth cease to be husband and wife.
“Both are free to go their separate ways without any hindrances and molestation.”
