An Area Court at Centre-Igboro in Ilorin on Tuesday dissolved the marriage between Rukayat Jamiu and Jamiu Akanbi based on a request from the wife.
The presiding judge, AbdulQadir Umar, dissolved the marriage after the husband agreed to the divorce application by the wife.
Umar also ordered that the applicant should observe the three months Iddah period before she could marry again.
The judge also adjourned until Sept. 19 to rule on their children’s custody.
The applicant had earlier told the court that she was tired of her marriage and wanted a divorce, children’s custody and their maintenance.
The respondent, however, accepted the divorce request, saying “since she wants divorce, (there is) no problem. After all, she has packed out of the house for some time now”.
Akanbi also objected to the applicant’s request to have the children, saying the children had always been with him since their mother left the house.
