The chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti state, Chief Idowu Faleye has divorced his wife, Olajumoke, after 28 years of marriage, The Punch reports.
The marriage was dissolved by an Ado Ekiti customary court on Monday, August 16. The president of the court, Joseph Ogunsemi noted that the union had collapsed beyond reconciliation.
The couple already had two children; Toyin and Dupe who were 27 and 24 years respectively.
The 62 year old PDP chief had dragged his 52 year old wife to court claiming that she was aggressive and unpredictable.
Faleye said: “I don’t love the respondent anymore, I only appreciate my children and I don’t see any resolution in the union.”
Joseph Ogunsemi said that the evidence provided by Faleye was not challenged because his wife refused to come to court to provide contrary evidence.
‘This court has no option than to grant the request for dissolution as sought by Faleye.”
Olajumoke was however given 21 days to appeal the judgment.
Faleye said that he would allow her to stay in his house for six months after which she would leave his house.
