Woman divorces husband for starving her of sex for two years
An Igando Customary Court in Lagos, yesterday, dissolved the five-year-old marriage between a 35-year-old trader, Bilikisu Azeez, and her husband, Olusesi, on grounds of sex-starvation.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Bilikisu had told the court that her husband starved her of sex for over two years, a development which, she said, had affected her health.
She said: “My husband has been starving me of sex since he married his youngest wife; he has turned me to an abandoned property.
“I have been falling sick in and out of hospital. During my last visit to the hospital, I was told that it was because I have not had sex for long, that is why I experience frequent sickness.”
She also accused her husband of not caring for her and the only child of the marriage, saying: “My husband does not take care of me; I feed and clothe myself.
“He refused to enroll our only child, who is over four years old, in school and has failed to pay his medical bills. I always run to my mother for the hospital bill.”
Bilikisu, who also accused her husband of beating her publicly, which resulted in her fainting, recalling that trouble started when her husband brought in a third wife.
She continued: “There was joy, love and peace in the house until he came with another wife, who has been fighting me also.”
