Wife Demands Divorce Over Neglect Of Female Children By Hubby

A woman, Temilade Rasheed has told a Mapo Grade ‘A’ Customary Court in Ibadan that her husband, Adeboye Rasheed treats her like garbage and got married to another woman because she gave birth to three girls.

Temilade, in her testimony before the court, while seeking dissolution of her marriage, urged the court to grant her application for divorce.

She disclosed that he has not been responsible for the welfare of the three children.

”My in-laws are pushing my estranged husband to leave me for producing three girls and one boy.

“My lord, Rasheed no longer loves me because I gave birth to three girls. After my girls were born, he threw me like garbage and married another wife.

“The only one Rasheed caters for is my fourth child, who is a male”, Temilade said.

The petitioner further stated that her husband has turned her into a punching bag.

Temilade consequently prayed the court to grant her custody of all the children but order Rasheed to be responsible for their upkeep.

The Court President, Mrs S.M. Akintayo, adjourned the suit until May 26 for the respondent to open his defence.
