Doyinsola, a resident of Federal Housing Lugbe, Abuja, prayed the court to dissolve her 2-year-old marriage because of her husband’s extramarital affair with their maid.
“Two months after I left the house, my husband married a 20-year-old woman and never bothered to look for me,” she said.
Kayode, 51, residing in Adegbe, Lagos, who never appeared in court, wrote a letter to the court through his lawyer, authorising the court to grant his wife’s request.
He added that since she abandoned her matrimonial home, the court should dissolve the marriage.
The judge, Mr Abdul Bello, consequently dissolved the marriage.
