-DRUG ADDICTION and more, were all the packages that brought down this 1 year old marriage, according to Temitope Obasanjo nee Adebutu.
It's only in good times that all is well, nice and cosy, but when the chips are down and it is tending towards a battle, when things have fallen apart, then the common saying becomes "all is fair in love & war" and this particular saying of the sages is apparently what has seemingly become the guiding principle for Jowon Obasanjo in his current battle with his wife of only 1 year, in the person of Magistrate Georgina Temitope Adeporo Obasanjo, nee Adebutu.
When this marriage/union was constituted just slightly over 12 months ago amidst extraordinary pomp, with colossal amount of money running into several hundreds of millions in Naira spent, many never thought that even if there was going to be any form of snag which could lead to a separation, a battle of wits or even outright divorce, that it could be this quick! But alas, both parties are now at dagger's drawn ready for the guns on each side to boom rather loudly with massive effect and both sides are not willing or ready in any way or manner to backdown! Or like it is said commonly, to take a chill pill!
The truth majorly is that, that the union even lasted all of 12 months at all, is only because Tope, the wife still had hope that things could work out somehow and therefore waited for a reconciliation of a sort, not until her husband came with the clanger, and demanded that they both go their different or is it separate ways!
Jonwo like he usually does had gone away on another of his regular 'flight of fancy', to unknown destinations while remaining incommunicado. The particular one being the last, was for all of 4 and half straight months (from November 2017 till March 2018), with no communications of any kind whatsoever, only to arrive to demand for a full separation! And this was without him ever consumating the union at all.
So the frustrated wife was aghast to have received a letter which finally communicated her husband's intentions, which he had always threatened to do for a longwhile.
To show that he was very serious about what he had communicated in his letter and was bent on following his words with actions, he went ahead and instituted a case at the Igbosere Magistrate Court, Lagos Island with his affidavit of June 4, 2018, alleging amongst others- that shortly after the union was sealed, he suffered physical assaults from his new wife as well as threats to his life. So for fear for his life, he has askied for the court's intervention so as to help prevent further attacks!
More after the break.
