A Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan, on Tuesday, dissolved the 11-year-old marriage between Nurudeen Mabinuori and Zainab on grounds of sex starvation and fear of contracting sexually transmitted disease.

Delivering judgment, Chief Henry Agbaje, the President of the court held that ”the court had done everything possible to settle the problem between Mabinuori and Zainab, all to no avail”.

Agbaje consequently dissolved the union in the interest of peace and granted custody of the only child to Zainab.

The arbitrator ordered Mabinuori to pay N5,000 as the child’s monthly feeding allowance.
