Another high profile marital union has crashed. This time, it is the marriage of Olujonwo Obasanjo and Temitope Kessington Adebutu. The union which barely lasted a year seemed doomed from the start, as the mother of the groom was always against it.
It would be recalled that Mrs. Obasanjo argued that she had received a spiritual warning against her son having a big wedding. She said if he is to have an elaborate wedding at all, it must be done after his 34th birthday in June.
Despite her pleas and objection, Olujonwo and Temitope with the help of their fathers, had a flamboyant wedding in May 2017.
However, facts emerging now have indicated that Olujonwo can no longer tolerate the several threats to life and domestic abuse from his wife and has headed to court for dissolution of their union which is yet to produce a child.Citing an unbalanced emotion, threat to life and physical abuse, Olujonwo has thus asked the court to end their wedding.
In the court papers, Olujonwo accused Temitope of subjecting him to repeated acts of domestic violence since their wedding was contracted in May 2017. He said that Temitope has repeatedly threatened to kill him.
According to him, few weeks after their wedding, he found a knife she had kept under their matrimonial bed and had planned to use it to attack him. Olujonwo said in the night, Temitope woke up and asked for the knife and he denied removing it. He said Temitope told him that she would kill him and nothing will happen.
