A customary court in Lagos has dissolved a four-year-old marriage after the wife, Sidikat Oseni, complained that she was tired of her husband smelling her private part each time she came home late from work.
During the hearing, Sidikat told the court that her 50-year-old husband, Waheed Oseni, had a nasty habit of examining her private parts each time she came home late, in order to find out if she engaged in acts of infidelity.
She added that her husband not only subjected her to this demeaning exercise, he also beat her and tore her clothes on several occasions.
Mr Waheed did not deny the allegations as he justified his actions with a counter accusation that his wife was used to coming home late, and not serving him dinner.
The marriage was dissolved, and Mr Waheed was denied custody of the children, as the custody was granted to Sidikat who was ordered to give her former husband, access to their children at any reasonable time of the day.
Waheed was also ordered to pay a sum of N10,000 monthly to the woman as child support.
