MY HUSBAND SAID HE WANTED TO TAKE MY BRA TO HIS CHURCH FOR PRAYERS!A Customary Court at Igando, near Lagos on Wednesday dissolved the marriage of one Ganiyat Falana, 37, because of adultery. Ganiyat and Dare Falana were until the dissolution of the union, married for 15 years. Delivering judgment, the President of the court, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, said he was convinced that the couple could no longer live together as the petitioner had insisted on divorce after several interventions.
“The court has no choice than to dissolve the union; in spite of the fact that the wife still claims she loves her husband.
“The court pronounced the marriage between Dare Falana and Ganiyat Falana dissolved today, both parties, henceforth; cease to be husband and wife,” Omilola ruled. Dare, 40, a businessman, had approached the court, seeking the dissolution of the marriage because of infidelity and threats to his life.
The estranged man, who described his wife as adulterous, claimed to have caught her with a man friend in his room chatting and eating. “I came back home to pick something in the morning and I met my wife with her lover inside our room eating food bought from an eatery. “My wife is always threatening my life with dangerous weapons as she chased me with knife in our street to stab me.
“She is a good fighter. Her hobby is fighting. I have on at least five occasions bailed her at the police station. “She fights with friends, neighbors, even in the church and I had to leave that church for her because of this shameful act,” said Dare. Ganiyat, however, described Dare as fetish, claiming that he had killed the foetus in her womb. “He gave me Suya to eat when I was eight months pregnant and the baby in my womb started to breath faster, I rushed to the hospital but delivered a still birth,” she said.
Ganiyat, a mother of three, who did not object to the dissolution, told court that her husband was fetish. “I saw my bra inside my husband’s brief case, I queried him but he said he wanted to take it to his church for prayers. “He also brought a handkerchief home and gave it to me to clean my private part and return to him but I refused.
“He has been bringing home different types of soup and other liquids for me to drink which I also refused because I do not trust him.” “Apart from his fetish nature, he has also turned me to a punching bag.’’ She said that her husband had always blamed her for his predicaments.



…little Omonigho Abraham…

Health of boy attacked by dogs worsens

It appears the condition of four-year-old Omonigho Abraham, who was attacked by two dogs in the Igando area of Lagos State about a month ago, has worsened in the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja where he is currently receiving treatment.

PUNCH Metro learnt from his father, Odia, that Omonigho’s scalp which was torn off by the German shepherd dogs during the gruesome attack, had not healed and had been giving off an offensive odour.

He said this had given the family serious concern.

Odia told our correspondent on Wednesday that attempts to get the medical report of his condition had also been frustrated by some medical officers in the hospital.

He said, “My boy still complains of pains in different parts of his body. Also, when they open the bandage on his head, you will see that there is no much difference. It’s still like the first time the incident happened.

“In fact, for up to two weeks no consultant or doctor attended to him, and his head started smelling.

“We have been told he may still have to be admitted for six months or up to one year, for the doctors to do a skin-grafting surgery on his open skull. They will cut skin from parts of his body, to cover up the skull.”

He added that he had also continued to foot the bills of the boy, despite the instruction of the state government to the hospital management not to collect any money for his expenses.

Our correspondent gathered that a non-governmental organisation had to raise money for Omonigho’s drugs and over N100, 000 had been purportedly spent in buying drugs, among other expenses.

The report of a fundraising for Omonigho’s medical expenses was said to have angered the management of LASUTH who allegedly accused Odia of making money off his son’s predicament.

The father of three told our correspondent he was called into a meeting on Tuesday in which the management of the hospital promised to start implementing the state government’s pledge to the Abrahams.

He said, “The Lagos State Government, through its Ministry of Health, has already played its part by writing a letter to LASUTH that it would foot all the bills for which we are grateful.

“But when the letter got to them, they did not implement it. I was still buying the drugs till yesterday (Tuesday) that I was exhausted and I cried out that I did not have any money to buy drugs again.

“That was when the management of the hospital led by the Chief Medical Director, apologised and promised to start implementing the state government’s order.

“I have decided to wait for at least a week and see if they will change, like they promised.”

Odia said the Delta State Government and a few other people were interested in the medical report which had not been issued to him.

“The real issue I have now is that they (LASUTH) have not released the medical report which I asked for since October 16. They (LASUTH) have been directing me from one person to another and I am getting tired. If I see the report, I will know what exactly to do about this issue.”

Attempts to get the reaction of the management of LASUTH proved abortive as its Public Relations Officer, Dele Johnson, neither picked his call nor responded to a text message sent to his phone.
