A middle-aged housewife, Romoke Amzat, on Wednesday asked a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve her four-year-old marriage to her husband, Rasaq for alleged impotence.
Romoke told the court that since she got married to her husband, she had never enjoyed the sexual aspect of their marriage let alone getting pregnant.
“When I noticed his impotency, I advised him to seek medical attention at Jerico Specialist Hospital where he was operated upon and was even given drugs.
“Sadly, my husband just refused to take the drugs. The doctor also confirmed that if he had used the drugs, there would have certainly been some changes.
“He advised me to supervise his drug usage and I found that he was not taking the drugs.
“I did everything humanly possible but he kept lying to me about the true situation of things,’’ Romoke said.
The housewife, who broke down in tears, said: “for four years now, since our marriage, I have not had any conception’’.
Rasaq, however, said that since their marriage, he had been under spiritual attacks.
“I have made her to reason with me that the problem is beyond the ordinary medical sense, but she has failed to see things that way.
“I prefer that we seek God’s intervention in fasting and prayer rather than surgery,’’ he said.
The President of the court, Mr Henric Agbaje, asked them to go and think properly over the wife’s intention to quit the marriage.
Agbaje adjourned the case to April 2, for continuation.
