An Oyo State-based businesswoman, Aminat Adeshina, has approached a Customary Court, Ile-Tuntun, Ibadan, to dissolve her 22-year-old marriage to one Akeem Adeshina, for allegedly making sexual advances at their daughter. Aminat, a mother of four, in her petition, said that her husband attempted to rape their 16-year-old daughter. She said: “After I packed away from his house due to endless battery and lack of care, Adesina resorted into caressing our 16-year-old daughter, attempting to sleep with her.“The girl told me that somebody came to her bedside masked in the midnight and started caressing her breasts.
“The following morning, she started cursing whoever it was that wanted to rape her in the presence of her father. “Then, she said that her father pleaded with her to stop raining curses, confessing to be the person behind the mask.
“Our daughter also told me that her father gave her N1, 000 to keep quiet over what transpired. “When she narrated all these before my parents and other relatives, they advised me to return to Adeshina’s house for the sake of the future of my children. “On sighting me, he fled through the windows, because he suspected that the secret had been uncovered. “Lately, he has started threatening to take over the house which I built with my own labour.” The respondent, who consented to the suit, did not deny any of the allegations levelled against him. In his submission, Adesina, of Amunloko area of Ibadan, told the court that his wife abandoned him when he became heavily indebted. He said: “Aminat usually treats me and my relatives with disdain, having no regard for us.” He also refused to make comment on the allegation of sexual harassment levelled against him. The court’s president, Chief Henry Agbaje, adjourned the case till October 22 for judgment, asking the duo to provide more evidence to support their arguments.
