Divorce: “My husband is too lazy” – Wife tells court

    A businesswoman, Tawakalitu Sanusi, has asked a Mapo Grade A Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve her 15-year-old marriage to estranged husband, Olaide whom she described as ‘’too lazy.’’

    Sanusi said she is further frustrated by her husband’s alleged ineptitude when he barred her from having access to their three children.

    “My lord, Olaide stubbornly turned down all available job opportunities provided by my father due to his pride.

    “After losing his white collar job, I pleaded with him times without number to learn a trade or get a lesser job, but he was only interested in an office work.

    “For instance, I got him a security job at the University College Hospital (UCH), but he told me that he cannot withstand staying awake in the night.

    “Also, my father got him a job as a driver, but Sanusi bluntly refused,” Sanusi said.

    She said she attempted to travel to Saudi Arabia to work as a domestic so that she can provide for him and their children.
