A man who has had enough of his wife’s alleged obnoxious actions, has taken concrete steps to correct the anomaly.

Saheed Tijani, a tailor, on Tuesday, told an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court at Agodi, Ibadan, that neighbours advised him to divorce his 25-year-old wife, Afisat,  over her disrespectful manners.
NAN reports that Tijani said this while testifying before the court on reasons for seeking the dissolution of the marriage which had produced six children.
He said Afisat was in the habit of disrespecting him and has no regard for his mother, adding that  “her attitude at home is annoying.’’
The plaintiff further accused her of having extramarital affair with a carpenter who she hired to work on her new building.
“I have been enduring her since we married hoping that she would turn a new leaf but things get worse on daily basis.
“Her bad character  made my neighbours to advise  me to divorce her;   they even  wanted to assist me financially to file the suit,’’ Tijani told the court.
Afisat, however,  said she was not ready for divorce and prayed the court to plead with the plaintiff, that she still loved him.
She also denied having an affair with the carpenter,  promising to give due respect to the plaintiff  henceforth.
Chief  Mukaila Balogun, the President of the court, appealed to the plaintiff to give room for amicable resolution of the rift.
Balogun adjourned the case till Monday  for a report of settlement or continuation of hearing.
