A 28-year-old woman, Toriola Suliat, has demanded that her husband, Toriola Lateef, returns her virginity in good health before she can consent to his request for divorce.
Explaining how she was before the union, Suliat stated her conditions before an Iseyin Grade C Customary Court on Wednesday
The husband had earlier filed the suit for the dissolution of the marriage over “frequent public embarrassment.”
The court heard that Suliat was in the habit of harassing her husband at his workplace and social functions, after which Lateef left his matrimonial home after he could no longer bear the trouble.
Suliat said “Ideally I will not marry this type of human being, if not for the charm he used on me, I was looking for charm to help my business grow and he told me that he will need to get some hairs from my private part and also make love to me, that was how I found myself married to him.”
“When I got to his house, my business boomed and he also made lot of money too and we got it renewed twice but now my health is deteriorating and he now moved out of the house.” she said
“He must look for a way to return my virginity and my health, before he can say he wants to leave me,” she said.”
President of the Court, Raheem Adelodun, said the case would be put on hold until Suliat gets better, just as he ordered the families of the estranged couple to seek urgent medical help for Suliat and update the court every 15 days.
