Woman who gave birth to three girls asks court to dissolve her marriage

A woman, Temilade Rasheed has filed for divorce before a Mapo Grade ‘A’ Customary Court in Ibadan, Oyo state.

While giving her testimony, she said her husband, Adeboye Rasheed hates her for giving birth to three girls.

Temilade appealed to the court to grant her application for divorce so that they can go their separate ways.

According to the distraught woman, her estranged husband’s in-laws having been urging him to leave her for giving him three daughters.

”My in-laws are pushing my estranged husband to leave me for producing three girls and one boy.

“My lord, Rasheed no longer loves me because I gave birth to three girls. After my girls were born, he threw me like garbage and married another wife.

The only one Rasheed caters for is my fourth child, who is a male,” Temilade said.

She further stated that Mr Rasheed has turned her into a punching bag.

She told the court that he has not been responsible for the welfare of the three children.

The petitioner consequently prayed the court to grant her custody of all the children but order Rasheed to be responsible for their upkeep.

The Court President, S.M. Akintayo, adjourned the suit until May 26 for the respondent to open his defence.
