Wife Seeks Divorce Over Alleged Rape By Hubby  print

Published on February 22, 2013 by   ·   6 Comments

A 35-year old woman in Lagos State is seeking divorce, claiming her spouse had repeatedly raped her.

Mrs. Bola Bamigbola on Thursday prayed an Igando Customary Court to dissolve her 10-year old marriage for alleged frequent demand for sex, and rape by her husband

Bola said that Taiwo, her husband, beat her up anytime she refused to have sex with him, adding that after the pounding, he would still have his way against her consent.

“My husband can sleep with me up to six times in a day; he does this everyday but anytime I tell him that I am tired, he will beat and rape me.

“I have reported him to his family members who told him to reduce it to four times a week but my husband refused to comply.

“Because of our constant fighting and disturbance, our landlord gave us a quit notice,” she said.

She said that Taiwo, 39, was a jealous husband who always suspected that his wife was dating another man.

“Anytime I did not come home on time, he would accuse me of being with a man,” the woman said.

She also accused Taiwo of lack of care, saying that he gave her N500 to feed the family for some days.

Responding, Taiwo, a trader, said, “What causes the frequent fight between us is that she comes home late and I need her to be close to me.”

He said that he cared for his family and regularly gave out feeding money except when he had poor sales.  The respondent, however, told the court to grant his wife’s wish, saying that he was no longer interested in the marriage.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the couple has two children, aged nine years and four years.

The President of the court, Mr. R.I. Adeyeri, adjourned the case until March 21 for judgment.

    HOW CAN YOUR HUSBAND RAPE YOU? THIS IS WHY WE SHOULD PRACTICE SHARIA LAWS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. OBVIOUSLY THIS WOMAN WAS GETTING HER SEXUAL SATISFACTION SOMEWHERE ELSE. OGA LET HER GO SHEKANA! ASHAWO WOMAN!

    She is 100% ashawo I agreed.

    She is also a deceiver I agreed.

    But having sharia throughout the country as MALLAM SHEHU suggested is to say all MALLAMS are bastards and idiots who doesn’t know when to talk.

    I hate mallams including buhari, el rufai, ribadu, etc

  3. Sometimes I am ashamed of being black: seeing how blacks reason upside down. If you post this story on foreign websites, you will not get the dirty and idiotic comments the 1st commentators made.
    Question 1 : Did we hear the full story?
    Question 2 : Are there provisions in our law that says that a man can rape his wife?
    Question 3: What job/business does the wife do that keeps her late?
    Question 4: Does marriage turn a wife into a sex property/toy such that whether she wants it or not, she must subject herself to marathon sex, irrespective of the bruises she will get because of not being sexually prepared [being wet]
    question 5: Did she know about her husband’s high libido before marrying him?
    Question 6: Did they visit trained marriage counsellors [not pastors or imams] in attempts tp reconcile their differences?

    Sanky,you are absolutely right.How I wish people will reason like you.

  6. It’s so hard in cases like this to be able to tell where the truth lies. Hopefully Nigeria’s judicial system is just enough to find it. Certainly from this post I cannot tell.
