Wonders shall never end! Woman whose husband beats her for not bearing male child seeks divorce

She urged the court to dissolve her marriage to her husband, Segun Akomolafe, for some reasons like neglect, incessant beatings and lack of care.

According to the information gathered by News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the couple’s trouble started when Segun Akomalafe got to know she was expecting a baby girl for the fifth time. Apparently, being the father of four girls did not appeal to the husband who decided to turn her to a punching bag without giving any consideration to her pregnant state.

The plaintiff admitted that her husband was not like that before. He only started beating her when it dawned on him that she may never have a male child for him. A baby boy would have made him a different man if she was pregnant with one.

I gave birth to my first child 13 years ago, but my husband started neglecting me and the children when I gave birth to the fifth girl-child.

“As a result, he married two other women and ever since they arrived, I have no peace again in the house, ” she stated.

According to her, the two wives also gave birth to female children. Mrs Sayo Akomolafe added that she was able to give birth to a sixth child which turned out to be a boy.

Her husband, the defendant, a welder; denied constantly beating her, saying that trouble started when his wife discovered that he married other women.

The three-member panel of the court headed by Mrs Yemisi Ojo, however, told the husband that the chromosome released by man is what determines the gender of a child.

Ojo also ruled that the aggrieved parties and their families should go back home to deliberate on how to take care of the six children.

“The court is disposed to settlement outside court and this case being a fresh matter, parties are given the opportunity to deliberate on how take care of the children,” she said.

The court ordered that the defendant must not beat his wife again and adjourned the case till May 8, for report of settlement.

Sex of child is not determined by female. Rather a child a boy or girl is determined by male.So he beat her because he couldn't a boy child.

your husband should beat you because you don't know that you are supposed to speak when spoken to.

That's nuts. Sending that poor woman back to her abuser. The children also suffered at the expense of this jerk knowing their father was angry at them for just being who they are. Tragic.

Twenty feet of rope with a noose at the end of it will solve the woman's problem. Hang the porch monkey 🐒 from a strong branch of an oak tree ten feet off the ground. Televise the event.

My grandma would tell us if a woman has a girl the man is doing all the work in the bedroom. Meaning the woman is a lazy lover. If a woman has a boy, she is doing all the work. She is putting it down. Go figure.
