Shola Bode, 38, of Barnawa GRA, Kaduna, on Friday urged a Kaduna Upper Customary Court, to dissolve his eight-year-old marriage with his spouse, Patience.
Bode told the court that Patience had deliberately refused to “listen to him as well as work with his instructions.”
He said that they had not been living peacefully since they got married in 2004, alleging that his wife always pack out of his house on minor issues.
“She moved out on April 4, 2006, came back after two days; moved out again on Feb. 14, 2007, and came back after 21 days and on Sept. 13, 2009, she left and is yet to return,’’ he said.
He said the marriage had yet to be blessed with a child.
Counsel to the complainant, Ahmad Ahmad, further told the Court that his client had made several efforts through his in-laws and church authority to settle the differences to no avail.
The Presiding Officer, Adamu Musa, after hearing from Bode, directed Patience to appear before the court on April 2.
