Ahmed had described the wife as wayward and carefree to the children while testifying before Chief Ademola Odunade’s court.
“As a result, Morufat doesn’t know anything about our two children’s living and educational performances.
“In fact, she has changed the children’s school up to four times now without any good result.
“When her problem became too much, Morufat ran away with some of my electrical appliances such as DVD, TV set, fan, fridge and lots more since 2017.
In her response, Morufat, who is a hair dresser, described her husband as irresponsible.
Morufat said that she was solely responsible for fending for the family.
“It was Ahmed’s mother who instructed me to stop cooking for the family since her son was a failure.
“In fact, I used to overwork myself before we could eat, when I was still living with him.
“I took custody of the children from Ahmed when I saw that he went to dump them in a village,” she said.
