My husband often beats me to a stupor, says, divorce-seeking housewife

Yetunde Kolapo a mother of two has expressed her sorrowful feelings about  her marriage that has plunged into commotion to an authority in Ibadan Oyo state capital.

Kolapo, an Ibadan-based trader said her husband has turned her  into a beating drum.

Yetunde who resides at Academy area of Ibadan told the authority on Monday that her husband, Olamilekan, constantly subjects her to a battery which sometimes results into her being hospitalized, and then abandoned.

"For seven years that I've been married to Olamilekan, I have had no rest of mind, as his constant physical abuse usually results into my being admitted to hospital.

"In addition, he does little or nothing about fending for our two children and me. In short, it is one day, one trouble in our home. My lord, I am completely fed up with him," she expressed her feelings.

She also prayed the authority to grant her custody of the two children of the union.

It seems that Olamilekan is no more interested in the marriage anymore when he, however, said that his wife Yetunde often starved him of sex.

"My wife usually denies me sex, which is an integral part of what stabilises a marriage.

"As if that is not enough, she usually keeps late night, and she no longer takes to my instructions.

"Her mother has been supporting her in her strange behaviour and she assisted her in packing her belongings from my home two weeks ago," Olamilekan said.

News Agency of Nigerian reports that the authority asked the couple to provide enough evidence to support their claims.
