Haroon Muritala, an 80-year-old retired lecturer, is tasking a Customary Court sitting in Mapo, to break up his 52-year-old marriage on grounds that his wife, Afsat, still denies him sex.
Earlier, in February this year, Haroon who filed for divorce, petitioned that the court has to dissolve his marriage because his wife is fond of denying him sex.
He added “I can no longer cope with the attitude again. Worst still, she and her relatives want me dead. Afsat attempted to stab me. She is misleading our six children. She has turned them against me,”
His wife, Afsat rejected his cry for separation and told the court that Haroon is licentious.
“Prof is promiscuous. I cannot have anything to do with [him] because he slept with his close friend’s three wives. My Lord, Haroon slept with the three wives of the man who acted as an intermediary whenever we had problems,” she said.
However, at the resumed hearing in the suit on March 18th, Mr Haroon, told the court that Afsat did not abide by the advice of the court for them to have sex.
“My wife did not abide by the advice given to her by this court to allow peace to reign by agreeing to perform her wifely duties.”
