Husband takes wife to court for disobeying instructions

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.

  • mr bode, you did the right thing by going to court. Kudos, women of that kind are suppose to be eliminated on earth. In the beginning; a woman brought sins to the world. They are devils. This days men should not rush to get married. This is because they believe in prostitution. May be she has some one there that she love now. There is something behind her leaving and coming. She never love you once.
