A mild drama took place at an Ado-Ekiti Customary Court on Tuesday, as a 40-year-old wife, Mrs Owolabi Tinuke burst into tears during cross-examination in the divorce suit instituted by her husband, Olumuyiwa. Tinuke pleaded with the court that she was ready to make amends wherever she might have made mistakes.
The husband, Owolabi who lives at No. 14, Fashanu Crescent, Similoluwa Ado-Ekiti, filed the divorce suit at an Ado-Ekiti Customary Court to his wife, Tinuke.
Olumuyiwa is seeking the dissolution on ground of alleged adultery by his wife, saying that he had caught his wife on several occasions with different men.
NAN recalls that during the first hearing on Aug. 18, the respondent, Tinuke, 40 denied all the allegations levelled against her by her husband.
She said that all the men that her husband accused her of were either his family members or childhood friends, who she met some on social media.
Tinuke said that her husband was in the habit of beating her and did not provide food for the family, but paid the school fees of the children.
At the resumption of the case on Tuesday, Counsel to the petitioner, Mr B.T. Oluwole cross-examined the wife.
But instead of the wife to respond to the questions posed to her by the counsel, she burst into tears and pleaded with the court not to dissolve her marriage.
She said it was shameful seeing the home she successfully built for 11years about to hit the rock, calling on the husband to give her another chance.
After the wife had been cross-examined by the counsel due to the intervention of the President of the Court, Joseph Ogunsemi, the case was adjourned to Sept. 19 for judgment. (NAN)
