My Husband Is A Kleptomaniac, LASTMA Official Tells Court

The eight-year-old marriage of Kofoworola Ajulo a 31-year-old LASTMA official may soon hit the rocks as she wants to call it quits.

Ajulo, a resident of Faronbi Street, Abule Egba, a Lagos suburb, cited her husband’s alleged kleptomania and ritual obsession.

She told an Agege Customary Court on Friday, February 25, that her husband, Seyi, a 38-year old driver, for whom she had two children, was also a drunk.

“He drinks to stupor. Whenever I am at home, there is no peace of mind for me,” Ajulo said.

“On several occasions, l caught him stealing from me after a hard day’s job.

“We are not compatible, there is no peace of mind in the house. My husband drinks to stupor and misbehaves,” said Ajulo who urged the court to dissolve the marriage.

She added: “He keeps checking my phones and monitoring my movements. He is also fetish and was always in possession of different charms

“When l got pregnant for our first child, he claimed l needed to follow him to their village for a particular festival so that l can give birth safely but I refused.

Sometimes l see charms under his pillow or mine which he claimed are for protection while he hides others in his pockets,” she said.

“For me the marriage is over as there is no love lost between us again,” she added.

The petitioner also wants the respondent to be responsible for the children’s education and upkeep.

While the respondent was not in court during the session, the presdient of the court Phillips Williams, adjourned the case to Tuesday, April 4, for judgement.
