Mrs Risikat Adegboyega, A mother-of-four, has lost her 16-year-old marriage, as an Igando Customary Court in Lagos granted the request of her husband to dissolve the 16 years union because she always demand for bribe before sex,cooked his food late and tarnished his image in public
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the court President, Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, held on Thursday that since the petitioner insisted on divorce despite interventions, the court is left with no option other than to grant his wish.
“The court hereby dissolves the marriage between Pastor Abayomi Adegboyega and Mrs Risikat Adegboyega; you henceforth cease to be husband and wife.
“Each of you should go his or her separate ways unmolested. The court wishes both of you well in your future endeavours.
“The custody of the first and third children of the marriage are awarded to the petitioner while that of the second and fourth children are awarded to the respondent, their mother.
“The petitioner must be paying N10,000 monthy for the feeding of the two children in the woman’s custody and must be responsible for their education and general welfare,” he held.
Koledoye also ordered that the petitioner should pay N200,000 to the woman for her to move on with her life.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 48-year-old Abayomi had sought divorce on grounds that Risikat demanded ‘bribe’ from him before sex.
“My wife starves me of sex, she will never allow me to sleep with her unless I give her money or buy her a gift,” he had told the court.
He had vowed to kill himself if the court would not dissolve the union which produced four children.
“Risikat should never come near me, I do not want to have anything to do with her again.
“She is irritating me, I will kill myself if the loveless marriage is not dissolved,” he said.
The embittered husband also alleged that his wife cooked his food late and tarnished his image in public.
“My wife wants my ministry to collapse, she defames my character before my members and others; people who want to help me refuse because of what they hear from her,” he said.
He added that Risikat fought his church members.
However, 39-year-old Risikat denied all the allegations and accused Abayomi of threatening her life with charms.
She prayed the court not to dissolve the union, saying that she still loved him in spite of his misbehaviour.
“My husband told me that he would use charms to destroy my life; indeed, after few weeks, I was very sick; everywhere my family took me to, they said it was a spiritual attack,” the trader told the court.
She said that she never denied Abayomi sex and cooking his food late.
She also denied fighting her husband or members of his church.
The respondent accused Abayomi of beating her at the slightest provocation.
She added that Abayomi chased her and the children out of her matrimonial home since nine months ago, without sending money for their upkeep.
“He is just looking for an excuse to dump me. If he wants to marry another wife, he should go ahead instead of making false allegations against me,” she said.
Suspension of RUGA by President Muhammadu Buhari instead of total cancellation showed that there was no genuineness in the actions of the Federal Government, this statement was made by The Biafra Nations Youth League,
The Biafra group said it will do everything humanly possible to frustrate the implementation.
Recall that the group through its Deputy Leader, Ebuta Ogar Takon had threatened to evict northerners from the entire eastern region if the Coalition of Northern Groups goes ahead with its threat to expel Southerners from the North on 30th July amid suspension of RUGA.
Speaking, Kufre Obot insisted that the BNYL would “carry out its threat in retaliation to any unfortunate incidence against the people of the Southeast and South south.”
He lamented that similar incident was the cause of the Biafra initial secession, adding “everyone can now see reasons our fathers Emeka Ojukwu and Philip Effiong rebelled against Nigeria.
“We are also aware of how people from our region especially the South south are currently being retired from the Army and other Forces.
“Efik, Igbo and Ijaw people in the army are the recruit, those who will be sent to Sambisa to confront Boko Haram with toy guns,” he said.
The group said it will henceforth begin to check herdsmen excesses in the region to avoid unexpected attack on communities.
“We dare the so called Abdulazeez Suleiman and his Coalition groups to execute their plans on 30th or hide their faces in shame,” he said.
Lionel Messi, the Argentina captain, is likely to face a two-year ban from international football, over comments he made after their win over Chile in the Copa America third-place playoff, the UK Mirror reports.
Messi and his team-mates lost to rivals Brazil in the semi-final. The hosts went on to defeat Peru in Sunday’s final.
following a tussle Chile’s Gary Medel , Messi was sent off in the third-place playoff , in which the former Cardiff midfielder appeared to be the aggressor.
But the referee gave both players their marching orders and the Barcelona superstar stated afterwards: “There is no doubt, the whole thing is set up for Brazil. I hope the VAR and referees don’t play any part in the final and that Peru can compete but it looks tough to me.
“I did not want to be part of this corruption, we shouldn’t have to be part of this disrespect we suffered during the Copa America.
“We could have gone further but we weren’t allowed into the final. Corruption, referees and all the rest stopped people from enjoying the football.
“I always tell the truth and I’m honest, that is what keeps me calm, if what I say has repercussions that is not my business.
“I think that what happened is because of what I said [against Brazil].
“What I said last time perhaps came back to haunt me. With a yellow card that was the end of it.”
CONMEBOL regulations prohibit “insulting in any means or manner CONMEBOL, its institutions or personnel”, an offence that carries a ban of up to two years.
CONMEBOL released a statement of their own following Messi’s comment, branding it “unacceptable”.
The statement continued: “Said accusations represent a lack of respect for the competition.
A two-year suspension would see Messi miss qualification for the 2022 World Cup, as well as the Copa America next year in Argentina and Colombia.
