Oja Oba/Mapo Court C Customary Court, Mapo, Ibadan, Oyo State has listened to the prayer of divorce of a woman, Omobola Adegunju from her husband, Adewale Adegunju.
Omobola told the court that her husband was troublesome and nonchalant about her welfare and that of their children. She added that she was fed up with their relationship and wasn’t ready to go on with it.
She, as such, appealed for a separation from her husband and requested that the court made him responsible for their children’s upkeep.
