My Wife Frequently Beats Me, Man Tells Court

An electronics trader, Gbade Olaniyi, yesterday petitioned an Ile-tuntun Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve his seven-year-old  marriage to his wife, Olubunmi, for frequently beating him.

Testifying, Mr. Olaniyi said, ”my wife has emasculated me. She has sent my friends and family away”.

“Anytime we have minor misunderstanding, she gives me dirty slaps. In fact, she slapped me on Sunday August 2, 10 days ago and tore my skin  with her fingernails”.

“She said she did it because I didn’t tell her where I went to when she asked me. She has neglected her role as a wife because she leaves home for  days and even months for no reason,” he said.

Ms. Olubunmi consented to the divorce prayer.

“My lord, my husband has turned me into pauper. Our children don’t even have good clothes to wear”.

“Sometimes, I leave the home because he never took care of me during pregnancy. I slapped him because he sleeps with a certain young girl named Shukurat in our house and the secret leaked to me”.

“I got to know when Shukurat’s aunt attacked him in my presence. I also have evidence of the love messages and credit cards sent by my  husband to the girl and how they have been going to the hotel together,” Olubunmi explained.

Henry Agbaje, the court’s president, held that the evidence provided by the two were not sufficient enough and therefore requested them to  furnish the court with more.

He also ordered them to bring their relatives and adjourned the case  until August 19 for judgment.
