A 72-year-old retiree, Mr Funsho Amos, has lost his marriage for starving his wife of sex for three years.
An Igando Customary Court, in Lagos, on Tuesday granted the request of Mrs Ayo Amos, seeking dissolution of her union to Funsho on the grounds of sex starvation and irreconcilable differences.
The court president, Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, while delivering the judgment, said it appeared that the estranged couple was tired of the marriage and all efforts to reconcile both parties had failed.
“Since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.
“The court hereby pronounces the marriage between Mrs Ayo Amos and Mr Funsho Amos dissolved today; both of you henceforth cease to be husband and wife.
“Each of you should go on his or her separate ways unmolested, the court wishes both of you well in your future endeavors,” Koledoye ruled.
