An 11-year-old marriage has been nullified because the wife had sexual
affairs with men she met on social media.
The 11-year-old marriage between an Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State based
businessman, Muyiwa Owolabi and his wife, Tinuola, has been nullified
by a Customary Court sitting in the state capital following
allegations that the woman was involved in adultery with men she met
on the social media platform, Facebook.
According to a report in Vanguard, Owolabi had prayed the court to
separate him from his wife because she was a serial adulteress who saw
nothing wrong in sleeping around with men, something that caused
turbulence in the marriage which produced two children.
He also accused Tinuola of using Facebook and WhatsApp to connect with
different men with whom she had sexual affairs. To back up his
accusation, Owolabi tendered computer generated evidences of her
conversation with her lovers in court.
He showed the court text message communications she had with the men
as well as printout of pictures of the men in question.
But his wife vehemently denied having any love relationships with the
men, telling the court that her husband was in the habit of beating
her up at the slightest provocation and starving her anytime he was
angry.
She also urged the court to dissolve the union as she was also fed up.
In delivering his judgment, the president of the court, Joseph
Ogunsemi , held that it was clear from the available evidence before
the jury that both parties are living apart, and that the union has
broken down irretrievably.
He duly nullified the marriage and granted custody of the two kids to Owolabi.
