The court’s President, Ademola Odunade, held that the bond of love between the couple was no longer traceable.


“In the interest of peaceful coexistence, the husband and wife relationship between Olalekan and Modinat has ceased to be henceforth.

“If any claim or complaint is to be made, there is ground for appeal,” he said.


Olalekan, in his petition, told the court that his wife had over a period of time subjected him to sexual starvation.

“Anytime I propose lovemaking to Modinat she shunned me as if I am not entitled to it.

“All my effort at making her reason with me failed because her parents and relatives that I reported the incident to could not pacify her to change her attitude.

“Despite my love for her, I am now heartbroken, frustrated and completely disillusioned.

“Since I married her four years ago, she hasn’t conceived. Since we got married, I have always afforded her royal treatment by providing for all her needs.

“In fact, I set up a business of N1.6 million for her,” Olalekan said.

However, Modinat opposed Olalekan’s divorce petition, saying she was still in love with him.

“I did all I could to conceive to the extent that I even underwent a surgery to correct the abnormality, but it was to no avail.

“I was staying in Abidjan, where I was prosperous before I travelled down to Nigeria to marry him.

“Before coming here, I had sent Olalekan several huge sums of money to build a house for me, but he somehow mismanaged the fund and did not build it to my taste.

“That was the reason why I started starving him sexually ,” she said.
