Mrs. Bimbo Olajumoke, 49-year-old dealer on
fabrics, on Friday, told an Igando Customary
Court in Lagos that she caught another woman
cooking for her husband.

working place in Ikotun.

stop coming to his house.

unannounced when he stopped picking my
calls and I saw a woman in his kitchen
cooking,” she said.
The mother of three said that the children told
her that their father told them to vacate the
house in Ikorodu that he had sold it.

when going out in the morning to her shop and
will not come home to sleep,” the petitioner

he was no longer in love with his wife.
“Please, I can no longer tolerate this loveless
marriage, I have tolerated her enough,” he
