My husband is starving me of sex; I cannot cope again – Housewife tells Court

Spread the love

Mrs Toyin Bello, an Ibadan resident, has appeared before an Ile-Tuntun Customary Court, seeking to divorce her husband, Mr Dotun Bello, whom she has been married to for 16 years. She said that she wanted to end the marriage on the grounds that her husband denied her of sex for 10 years.


Mrs Toyin told the court that after the death of their first child about 6 years ago, her husband has not made love with her.

She further said, “Then, I started running from pillar to post; seeking spiritual and other available solutions towards getting pregnant for him.”

“Dotun himself went to the hospital, but he never showed me the result of the test conducted on him in spite of my numerous demands.”

“When Dotun was not at home one day, I saw the result where he hid it and it read: unproductive due to low count discharge”.

“With age not on my side any longer, I did the needful by secretly getting pregnant for another man so as to make him happy.”

“Immediately after delivery, Dotun started misbehaving as he became grossly irresponsible and hostile to me and to the child.”

“In fact, for the past 10 years now, he hasn’t slept on the same bed with me let alone touch me and I’m already feeling the trauma.”

“Despite Dotun’s disaffection and irresponsibility to me, he is also taking steps to kill me so as to inherit my house and claim the child that doesn’t belong to him.”

“That is the reason why I have fled home to start sleeping in our church in the Asi area of Ibadan.”

“My lord, I cannot continue to waste my time with Dotun; age is no longer on my side; please dissolve our union, ” she concluded.

In his testimony, Mr Bello told the court that he once had low sperm count, he however, said that he had taken care of it and was normal.

He also told the court that his wife on several occasions had not allowed him to make love with her, adding that there was a time she entered the wife’s room, but the wife was shouting on top of her voice that he wanted to rape her.

In his judgment, the President of the court, Chief Henry Agbaje, asked the couples to produce more evidence to back-up their claim

He also urged the couples to involve their relatives and family, so they can resolve the problem they have between them.

He adjourned the case to Dec. 29, 2020, for further hearing.
