My Wife Still Denies Me Sex – 80-Year-Old Man Tells Court


An 80-year-old retired lecturer, Professor Muritala Haroon, on Thursday told a Customary Court sitting in Mapo, Ibadan, Oyo State that his wife, Afsat, still denies him sex.

In February 2021, the octogenarian had filed for dissolution of his 52-year-old marriage on grounds of sexual starvation and threat to life.

At the resumed hearing in the suit, Prof Haroon, said: “my wife did not abide by the advice given to her by this court to allow peace to reign by agreeing to perform her wifely duties.”

Mr Haroon’s wife, Afsat, was absent when she was called and nobody represented her in court.

The President of the court, Ademola Odunade, cautioned Mr Haroon to exercise more patience.

“The court will work with the extended members of the family to resolve the matter amicably,” he said.

Mr Odunade adjourned the case until May 17 for further hearing.

In the petition seeking the dissolution of his 52-year-old marriage, the retired lecturer alleged that Afsat was fond of locking him out of the bedroom for no just cause.

“I can no longer cope with the attitude again. Worst still, she and her relatives want me dead.

“Afsat attempted to stab me. She is misleading our six children. She has turned them against me”, he said.

In her reply, Afsat had rejected the prayer for separation. According to her; “Prof is promiscuous. I cannot have anything to do with [him] because he slept with his close friend’s three wives.

“My Lord, Haroon slept with the three wives of the man who acted as an intermediary whenever we had problems,” she said. – NAN reports
