A housewife, Sherifat Olokoba, on Thursday asked an Area Court in Ilorin to dissolve her 26-year-old marriage to husband, Saadu on grounds that she no longer loves him.
”My lord, we got married in 1994 and we have four children. I want an end to this marriage because I no longer love Saadu. I cannot continue to make myself unhappy.
“We don’t have time for each other anymore. I am becoming frustrated because he doesn’t care for me anymore,” she told the court.
Saadu, who did not object to the petitioner’s prayer, said: ”she is free to go.
“My Lord, let her go as she wishes. She is free to go, ” he consented.
The Presiding Judge, Abdulhameed Aliyu, dissolved the union.
