My Husband Spend Money On Alcohol And Gambling — Woman Tells Court


A 40 year old stylist,Esther Olabisi, on Tuesday urged an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve her 12-year-old marriage over her husband’s alleged addiction to alcohol and gambling.

Esther, who told the court that she could no longer cope with her husband’s drinking habit, said, “My husband, Jacob, loves alcohol more than me and his children.

“He prefers to spend his money on alcohol and gambling than to pay the school fees of our two children.

“I have been paying the children’s school fees and catering for their other needs for the past eight years, but my husband fails to appreciate my efforts.”

Esther said her mother-in-law had tried to intervene in the matter although all her efforts failed.

“I, therefore, pray the court to separate us, I am tired of his irresponsible ways of life and his senseless gambling habit,” she said

The respondent was, however, not present in court.

The President of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, ordered the bailiff to serve the respondent with the petition.

He directed the petitioner to maintain the peace pending the determination of the case.

The case was adjourned till April 19 for mention.
