“My lord, I have decided to call it quit with Ramota because I have exhausted my patience with her for too long.
“I got married to Ramota in 1988 so that she could practice the same faith with me.
“Right now, I no longer know anything about her movement as she now became stone-hearted.
“Without my knowledge or approval, Ramota started going to church and bringing home certain kind of water.
“In fact, to my disgust, Ramota brings into my matrimonial home different colours of candle under the disguise of praying with them.
“By this time, she had stopped practising Islam.
“Worst still, Ramota has succeeded in turning our four children against me by poisoning their mind that I am bad.
“Most of the times, she doesn’t stay at home for three days and has recently moved away for long.
“Ramota has even absconded with the first three children without giving me any clue of their whereabouts.
“Just few days ago, she stubbornly came to take away the last child that has been keeping me happy.
“When I can no longer bear the humiliation, I reported to her parents and relatives, but they pleaded with me that she would change,” Azeez said.Ads
“It is true that I now go to church and my husband approved of it.
“When Azeez later told me to stop going to church, I disagreed with him because I needed prayers.
“I did not abscond with any of the children, they wilfully followed me.
“I want to urge this honourable court not to award Azeez custody of the children because he is too busy, they will suffer,” Ramota said.Ads
