A Customary Court sitting in Ake, Abeokuta on Wednesday 29 April, 2015 ended a three-year-old marriage between Femi Olayiwole and wife, Kemi, due to the absence of vagina, deceit and frequent fighting.
Olayiwole accused his wife, who had failed to appear in court after being summoned several times, of living a false life, frequent fighting and threatening his life adding that “she deceived him to marry her knowing that she could not bear him a child.”
He said that “My wife had been deceiving me since we got married I have never seen her pass through menstruation. My wife does not have any vagina opening.” He stated told the court that “Anytime I ask her for sex, she would give an excuse to back up her refusal. Meanwhile, we have been praying to God to give us children.”
The complainant said “My wife did not tell me anything about her condition before we got married, until February this year that she confessed to me that she had never experienced menstruation in her life.”
He said to the court that “I thought she was lying, so I went to see her parents who told me it was true, and that they thought their daughter explained to me before we got married,”
He therefore prayed the court’s president to dissolve his three-year-old marriage that had nothing to show for both now and in future.
Mr, Olalekan Akande, court president, without much delay dissolved the marriage, saying that both parties had made up their minds to part ways, despite the fact that the defendant had absconded appearance before the court that had summoned her several times.
“Both parties were free to remarry anybody of their choice, adding that the document of the marriage dissolution should be sent to Kemi,” Akande said.
