According to reports, a man asked the court to dissolve his 16-year marriage because his wife dared to cook and serve pork meat to his mother.
The man identified as Mr Kolawole Adegoke, asked a customary court in Agodi, Ibadan, Oyo state, to end his 16-year marriage over a problem with his wife.
According to the fashion designer, his wife Adeyinka, had gone ahead to serve his mother pork meat, while ignoring the fact that she’s a Muslim and such meat was a taboo to them.
Making his case, Adegoke said:
“My lord, the major grudge I have against her is that she intentionally bought and cooked pork for my mother who is a Muslim.
Her action is disgusting; I see no reason for her to cook such meat which is forbidden for my mother, a Muslim. The court should separate us to avoid unpleasant occurrence because I can no longer stay with a woman who perpetrates such a thing.”
He also mentioned that she has lost all respect for him and preferred to listen to her parents instead.
Giving his judgement, the president of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, said:
“Parties cease to be husband and wife henceforth, and the court registrar should serve the defendant a copy of the judgment.”
Na wa o!
