A petrol marketer and father of five, Mr. Wasiu Badmus, has prayed a magistrate court sitting in Mapo, Ibadan, to dissolve his marriage to his wife, Suliyat, because she has become promiscuous since he allowed her to join politics.
He explained that he initially kicked against his wife’s desire to go into politics but agreed as a result of the trust he had in her.
“As soon as Suliyat began to attend rallies and political meetings, I started hearing negative stories of how she was laying about with men.
“Precisely, on Feb. 28, I saw a top male politician in the community returning her at 11.30 p.m., and I was sad.
“Since that time, the earliest time she came home was midnight and she stopped taking instructions from me.
“Not too long after, vigilantes alerted me around 2.00 a.m. that that same top politician just dropped her as usual, and I saw them together.
“I then reported her to an elderly politician in the neighborhood, who promised to intervene, but her attitude even worsened.
