A 32-year-old man, Aliu Olagunju, on Wednesday in Lagos pleaded with an Agege Customary Court to dissolve his 11 years old marriage with his wife, Adijat, over alleged threat to his life.

Divorce-Court

Olagunju told the court that there was no more love between him and his wife.

According to Olagunju, his wife is arrogant, does not take corrections as well as not taking care of the children.

“She neglects the children and no motherly love for them,” the petitioner said.

Olagunju told the court that two years ago he sought the dissolution of the marriage, but due to several mediations, he accepted to withdraw the suit.

He said he had moved out of the house to a friend’s place due to his wife trouble.

“She threatened my life, saying she will kill me and that she is ready to become a widow,” he said.

The petitioner begged the court to separate them, as he did not want to die now as his wife always threatened to kill him.

He also prayed the court for the custody of the first two children, adding that the last child, who is nine months old, can live with his wife.

Defending the allegations, Adijat, a final year student of the Lagos State University and mother of three, denied the allegations.

She said that her husband was irresponsible and does not provide for her and the children.

“My husband beats me constantly whenever we had any misunderstanding and he does not have any respect for me,” she said.

The respondent, however, begged the court not to grant her husband’s request, saying that she still loves him.

President of the court Phillip Williams, adjourned the case till April 21 for mediation and urged the couple to come with their family.
