Woman beaten and thrown out by husband over her refusal to accept his mistress' child

Mrs. Sinmiat Omowumi Ogunbanjo, a mother of four was on Sallah day, battered by her husband after she refused to take custody of a baby delivered by her husband's mistress, P.M News reports.

Jimmy Omotalabo Ogunbanjo, 40, a staff of Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, Abeokuta, Ogun State, came home with a two-year old child and informed Omowumi that the baby was the result of his affair with his mistress in Abeokuta.

According to P.M. News, he told her that he brought the child to her to nurse because the mistress could not take proper care of the baby. Omowumi asked him to return the baby to the mother because she was not ready to nurse or take custody of the baby. Several family members, including her mother-in-law, Ganiyat Ogunbanjo pleaded with her to take custody of the baby but she refused. Her refusal to accept the child led to an argument and in the process Jimmy and other members of the family allegedly battered her and threw her out of her matrimonial home.
Omowumi, who was seriously injured reported the assault to the police who told her it was a family matter and sent her away. Following the development, Omowumi contacted a lawyer, Barrister, Olufemi Ajiboso who petitioned the Ogun State Commissioner of Police and the management of FRSC Ogun State Command, her husband’s employer.
Ajiboso, who confirmed the incident, said what happened to Omowumi was a clear case of inhumanity to man and an assault not only on the victim but women in general. He said Omowumi informed him that her husband had subjected her to all sorts of ill treatment since he married her and she had been enduring it because of her children.
He also revealed that he had instruction from Omowumi to institute a suit for divorce.
Ogunbanjo could not be reached at the time of filing this report as his phone was switched off when P.M. News reporter phoned him several times.
