- An Ibadan customary court has dissolved the marriage between one Moruff Ajayi and his two wives on grounds of irresponsible acts on the part of the women
- Ajayi told the court that the women were fond of quarreling and that he had no peace of mind
- In spite of being summoned three times each, the two defendants were, however, not in court
The marriage between a man, Moruff Ajayi and his two wives, Suliyat and Kudirat, was dissolved by an Idi-Ape customary court sitting in Ibadan, on Wednesday, April 17 on the grounds of irresponsible acts on the part of the wives.
According to Vanguard, Ajayi’s prayers were granted by the president of the court, Moses Oyekanmi, based on what the plaintiff described as irreconcilable differences with his two wives.
Legit.ng gathers that Ajayi married Suliyat, 26 years ago and Kudirat, 16 years ago. The court’s president ordered that both women be served with a copy of the judgment.
Addressing the court, Ajayi said when he could no longer bear with their “troublesome behaviours”, he sent his two wives packing in 2017.
He said: "My wives are fond of quarreling. I have no peace of mind. Whenever any member of my family intervenes, they do not listen. Please separate me from my two wives.”
He added: “Since I sent them packing, I have been taking care of my children.”
In spite of being summoned three times each, the two defendants were, however, not in court.

Yada'u added that in the past election which held in 2015, he and his wife named Hafsat Suleiman both voted for Muhammadu Buhari, who at the time, contested under the umbrella of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
