A 75-year-old man, Fashola Fakorede, begged Igando Customary Court, Lagos, to dissolve his marriage to his wife, Funke, 49, over Funke beating him.

court_logo_2Fakorede told the court that his wife had turned him into a punching bag and also inflict injuries over his body.

“My wife wants to kill me, she beats me every day. I don’t want to die now, save my life.”

He claims his wife beats him if he asks for food or anything and laments that she has made it a routine affair.

Fashola adds that his wife doesn’t care about him any more, noting that she can be absent for several days and if he queries her, she will hit him with any dangerous weapon available.

“And my daughter is also taking her footstep. She brings home different men and my wife will not query her. So, I sent her away from my house,” he said.

The man says he doesn’t love her any more and wants a divorce.

Funke, a trader, denied the allegations, saying she did not beat her husband and always took good care of him and respected him.

The mother of three, however, accused her husband of denying his children the right to go to school.

She also added that her husband had disowned his daughter, and urged the court not to grant his wish as she still loved him.

The judge, Mr. R. I. Adeyeri, adjourned the case till November 25 for further hearing.
