A woman who fell for and married a man who pretended to be a Mass Communication graduate of the University of Lagos has been granted divorce by a Lagos Customary Court.
The woman, 38-year old Nnenna had sued for divorce from Kelechi Nwokolo for reasons of assault, threat to life and marriage based on deceit. The man’s plea for retention of the marriage was rejected by the court.
While dissolving the marriage, President of the Customary Court which sat at Agboyi/Ketu in Lagos, seized the opportunity to advise women to always do proper investigation before tying the wedding knot with any man.
Does a woman need to ask for credentials to authenticate a suitor’s claims?
