A driver, Mr. Aniefiok Adams, yesterday told an Agege Customary Court, Lagos, that he was not sure he was the father of his child as his wife, Peace, had not been faithful to him. Adams said Peace was not submissive and had been going out with other men because he lost his job.
According to him, the respondent is always fighting with him and also returns home very late at night. Adams said this while testifying in a divorce petition he filed against Peace. He said: “She did not inform me that she was pregnant until after six months of the pregnancy.
So, I am not even sure I am the father of our one-year-old daughter.” Responding, Peace said she was fed up with the marriage.
She said Adams did not allow her to work to support the house, and he could not even meet the demands of the family. President of the court, Mr. P. A. Williams, thereafter dissolved the marriage.
He said: “The court has mediated and tried in resolving the differences between both parties for the past months, but since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve it.”
