A housewife, Bayonle Bamidele, on Tuesday told an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court in Agodi, Ibadan, that she denied and beat up her husband, Adeyemi Bamidele, anytime he demanded sex for fear of contracting HIV. She said her husband was a womaniser who always brought his female friends to their matrimonial home. She explained, “I have warned him to stop promiscuity to avoid contracting HIV, but he didn’t listen to me.
Bayonle urged the court to grant the request of her husband, saying she was not ready to give her body to a flirt. The husband, a retiree, had approached the court for dissolution of his eight-year marriage with Bayonle on the ground that she denied him sex. He also alleged that the defendant always beat him and threaten to kill him whenever he demanded sex.
“The union of eight years is yet to produce a child, worst still, she denies me sex and beat me whenever I make move to sleep with her. She is a wicked woman, am tired of living with a wife that refused to give me sex,” he said. The President of the Court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, dissolved the marriage and directed the plaintiff to pay N5, 000 to the defendant to pack her belongings from the plaintiff’s house.
