“He left us in a rented apartment since January this year without paying for the rent and looking after the welfare of his family,” Mojirade told the court on Tuesday."

“I was in the house till June when the house rent expired and we packed to his parents’ house after much pressure from our landlord."

“His parents kept telling me to have patience and that my husband would soon come back,” she said.

She said the husband refused to call up till the time of going to court, insisting “he has abandoned us.”

Mojirade urged the court to dissolve the marriage and order the man to be responsible for the upkeep of his two children.
