The court had heard from Jimoh, who had prayed for dissolution of the marriage, on the ground that his wife was a quarrelsome and troublesome woman.
Earlier, the petitioner, who is the branch Chairman of a local militia (Od’ua Peoples Congress) had told the court: “There is no more love in the union as my wife is not caring, and highly adulterous.”
He alleged his wife often fought other wives, especially his fourth wife and heaped abuses on his other children.
Falana alleged that his wife had slept with one of his subordinates, who kept bragging about the act.
“This caused me so much embarrassment among my members, being an OPC leader in my area.
“I called Funke’s attention to this act and told her to come and swear to an oath but she refused. I hate her so much,” he said.
