A 45-year-old trader, Mrs Cecilia Ayayi, has approached an Igando Customary Court in Lagos to end her 20-year-old marriage over her randy husband’s attempt to rape her younger sister.
Cecilia told the court, yesterday, that her husband, John Ajayi, for who she had three children, had on many occasions attempted to rape her younger sister.
“My sister left our house without any notice, when I called her to know why she packed out she told me that my husband had been trying to rape her whenever I am not at home. That she had to leave because my husband may succeed in raping her one day,” a discomfited wife said.
The petitioner also accused her husband of infidelity.
“My husband is a womaniser; he brings girls, nursing mothers and divorcees into our matrimonial home.
“On many occasions, he and his lovers had beaten me up wherever I tried to prevent them from entering our room. He even impregnated one of the women,” she alleged.
Cecilia said that her husband sent her packing because she was an illiterate.
She added:”My husband sent me packing that he can no longer cope with an illiterate.
The Court’s President, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, after listening to the couple, adjourned the case to July 12 for further hearing.
