Taiwo, a building materials seller, said Jamiu usually gave her and their four children only N400 feeding allowance daily.

The President of the Court, Mr Adewale Eko, ordered the husband to start paying N5,000 to his estranged wife as weekly allowance to cater for the children.

A 41-year-old woman, Taiwo Arum has pleaded with an Igando Customary Court, Lagos, to dissolve her 11-year-old marriage on the grounds of battery and rape.

“On each occasion, nobody could hear my crying because of the noise from some of our tenants’ generators”, she told the court.

The woman, who claimed to be the fourth wife, said that the children lacked fatherly care and affection.
