An Agege Customary Court in Lagos State on Wednesday dissolved a six-year-old marriage of a businesswoman, Kemi Olomu, over lack of love, laziness and gossiping by her husband.

The President of the court, Patricia Adeyanju, held that the marriage of Kemi, 39, and Bamidele, an electrician, was irretrievable.

She told the parties to go their separate ways in the interest of peace.

“The court grants the plea of the petitioner and, therefore, dissolves the union between her and her husband, Bamidele.

“They shall cease to be husband and wife; both parties are ordered to go their separate ways without any threat to life or blackmail,’’ Adeyanju held.

NAN reports that Kemi filed for divorce on November 6, 2018, saying that Bamidele was uncaring, irresponsible and a gossip.

She said that she was fed up with the marriage.

“My husband does not have a job and is not even bothered to show he wants to get a job.

“There was a time he brought his friend and family members to live with us in our one room apartment.

“l am tired of shouldering responsibilities at home,” she said.

Kemi also told the court that Bamidele deceived her into the marriage by not telling her he never went to school.

“It was later l discovered my husband never had any formal education.”
