A 36-year-old man, Alhaji Sule Toheeb has asked an Ilorin Area Court to dissolve his 4-year-old marriage on the grounds that his wife, Saidat Toheeb, was always threatening to kill him.
Sule told the court sitting on Wednesday that his wife was a threat to his life and she was fond of disobeying his orders.
“My wife gets angry at any slightest provocation and always promise to kill me whenever I try to correct her wrong attitude,” he said.
He added that he was tired of the marriage because he cannot withstand his wife’s threat anymore.
In her defense, Saidat said her husband had the habit of provoking her which is why she always threatens him.
She however promised to be submissive to her husband as she was still interested in the marriage.
She also begged the court to adjourn the case so she can try and reconcile with her husband.
Presiding over the matter, Mr Yusuf Abdulkareem adjourned the case to June 5 for a report of settlement or continuation of hearing.
