A woman seeking a divorce in Lagos claims, “My husband runs after anything in skirt.”

On May 17, Oluwatoyin entered the plea on the grounds that her husband Segun had been unfaithful.

Oluwatoyin Falade, 44, has applied for the dissolution of her 11-year marriage at the Orile Agege Customary Court.

On May 17, Oluwatoyin entered the plea on the grounds that her husband Segun had been unfaithful.

Ages 8 and 11 are the children of the petitioner, who resides in Agege, Lagos, at Tunde Davids Close.

“My husband is a flirt; he runs after anything in a skirt.” “I had two girls before I married him, and those girls are 15 and 18. They stay with me, and I don’t trust my husband because he chases everything in his skirt. My husband changes women anyhow, and he doesn’t respect me. If the court doesn’t dissolve the union, I will run away with my kids,” she told the court amid tears.

She added that because of her husband’s adultery, the local kids make fun of her.

“I am fed up; Segun cannot change; chasing after women and ladies has become the order of the day for him,” she said.

She said that he doesn’t look after her or the kids.

Segun, a 46-year-old employee of the Lagos State Judiciary, replied and acknowledged his adultery.

“I will not lie; I bring in different women to the house, but I am ready to change. I have been begging her to please forgive me,” he said.

But he said that he takes care of his wife, kids, and household.

“My Lord, you can see that my wife is robust and fresh. It is obvious that she is not suffering. I bought her a phone recently, and I pay the children’s school fees,” he said.

He pleaded with the judge not to grant the dissolution, promising that if given another chance, he would make things right.

The Court President, Adewale Adegoke, instructed them to maintain their composure during the proceedings after hearing from both parties.

Mr. Adegoke postponed the trial until May 30 in order to use an ADR procedure.
