Court dissolves five-yr-old marriage over wife’s stealing habit

An Ikole Customary Court in Ekiti State on Wednesday dissolved a five-year-old marriage over a wife’s penchant for stealing.


The plaintiff, Sheidu Yahaya, had filed an application seeking to divorce his wife, Sarah, over her stealing habit, disobedience and stubbornness.


In the application filed at the court on May 14, Sheidu said he could no longer tolerate his wife’s constant stealing.


Sheidu said the latest incident, which informed his decision to seek divorce, was Sarah’s theft of a dog and two hens within their neighborhood.


The complainant, who also said that Sarah was constantly stealing his money, urged the court to dissolve the marriage.


Sarah, in her response, admitted stealing a dog and the hens at different times.


She, however, told the court that she paid compensation for the theft of the dog.


Delivering her judgment, the President of the court, Mrs Yemisi Ojo, said she was convinced that the couple could no longer live together.


“The plaintiff’s testimony on the defendant’s character, especially the aspect of stealing which makes it intolerable for him to live with her, has been established.


“It is glaring that the defendant was not falsely accused of theft; no reasonable man would want to put up with a woman that constantly causes him embarrassment,” she said.


Ojo, who ordered the parties to go their separate ways, also restrained Sarah from harassing Sheidu either at his place of work or residence.


She further ordered Sarah to return all Sheidu’s property still in her possession. NAN
