A panel of two magistrates, Ghazali Adam and Hyacinth Dolnaan, granted the divorce after Gapfung told the court that he had not had peace in his home for 14 years.

The panel in a ruling gave the petitioner custody of the three children.

Gapfung said that his wife left him in January with their three children.

”I no longer love my wife. We quarrel every time, I am afraid that the quarrel will affect the children negatively,” he said.
