A young Nigerian woman caused drama in court last week when she told her husband requesting for a divorce in court she would only consent to his request for the dissolution of their marriage if he returns her virginity and good health.
The estranged couple, Suliat Toriola and her husband Lateef Toriola, were joined in holy matrimony two years ago and they have been living happily together until the man filed for divorce at the Iseyin Grade C Customary Court.
Lateef was praying for the Court to annul the marriage on the grounds of frequent public embarrassment.
He claims Suliat was in the habit of harassing him at his work place and social functions attended by his friends and relatives.
He told the Court he had vacated their matrimonial home due to the unbearable development.
Suliat, responding to the claims said she was charmed by Lateef to marry him and if not that he wouldn’t have married him.
According to Suliat, she was looking for a spiritual help to grow her business then she met Lateef who convinced her to give him hairs from her private part and also make love to her. She gave in and that was how she found herself married to him.
After the marriage, her business boomed and everything was perfect for them but now her health is deteriorating and Lateef has now moved out of the house.
Therefore she wants the Court to force her husband to return her virginity and health, before he can leave her.
The Court presided over by Justice Raheem Adelod, adjourned the case until the health condition of Suliat improves.
He also ordered the families of the estranged couple to seek urgent medical help for Suliat and update the Court every 15 days.
