Vanguard learned that the couple, who have been living together since 2008 in Ikorodu area of Lagos, have three kids, but were yet to formalise their union.
According to a close family source, who spoke to Vanguard, the victim became “mentally ill after her husband reportedly shaved both the hairs on head and pubic area.
“They have been living together since 2008 without any formal wedding. They have three children. The eldest of their children is seven years old. After she developed mental disorder, Oriyomi sent her out with their three children. Ever since, the children have been living with their grandmother. He neglected the children because their mother is not in a good state of mind.”
Vanguard gathered that the case was reported at Igbogbo Police Station, but was not documented since there was no proof that shaving her head and pubic area were responsible for her mental illness.
When contacted, the victim’s mother said she would want to consult with her husband’s family before speaking out.
