“My husband infected me with STDs” – Wife seeks dissolution of marriage

by Zara Mustapha


The marriage between Azeezat Ayinde and her husband, Mohammed, has been dissolved by an Igando Customary Court in Lagos State after he  allegedly infected his wife with sexually transmitted diseases(STDs).

The Judge residing over the case, R.I. Adeyeri, said :‘’since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve  it.’’

The judge  added that the couple could no longer stay together because the marriage had broken down totally.

Nigerian Tribune reports:

‘’Both parties are free to go their separate ways,’’ Adeyeri held.

Thirty-two-year-old Azeezat  filed  a  petition on November 4 and urged the court to dissolve her six-year-old marriage to Ayinde, alleging that her husband  infested her with STDs.

The petitioner, who is a teacher, told the court that Ayinde was a womaniser  and his  constant     extra-marital affairs  had led to her  regular  visits to the hospital to treat infections.

“I have been in and out of hospitals treating STDs like gonorrhea, staphylococcus and otherinfectious diseases due to my husband’s unfaithfulness.

“My husband used to invite a lady to our house  in my absence. I have caught them inside our room on different occasions.

“He  told me she was  his friend’s wife  and that she was  always lonely which was  why he invited her to our home  to keep her company,’’ Azeezat said.

She accused her husband of abandonment, saying: “he leaves home and comes back after about a week.’’

Azeezat said she was  the one feeding and   paying  the children’s  school fees since  her husband did not care.

Forty-year-old Mohammed admitted that ladies always come to their house, but he claimed they were his wife’s friends.

“My wife’s friends always visit me whenever she  was not around. I don’t have anything to do with them,’’ the respondent said.

Mohammed said he always stayed back at work because of the  distance from  home and  return   at weekends.

“I  took  care of my children when we  were  still living together but stopped  when my wife packed out of my house 18 months ago,” he said.
