For being late to prepare meals for him, a 57-year-old man, Olufade Adekoya, has done the unexpected to his wife of 25 years.
NAN reports that the aggrieved husband took his wife, Olusola, to an Ikorodu Customary Court in Lagos, on Tuesday where their marriage was dissolved. According to the president of the court, Olu Adebiyi, he dissolved the marriage because there was ‘‘no longer any love in the marriage.’’ He pointed out that all the efforts of the court of law to settle the rifts between the couple has proven abortive.
The 57-year-old husband had told the court that his wife does not cook for him regularly and when she does, the food comes late.
”My wife had failed in her matrimonial obligations; she doesn’t prepare my food on time, I have warned her several times but she wouldn’t listen to me. Most times I go to the canteen to eat when I am hungry, there is no point in harbouring a wife that makes me hungry. In fact, my sister saw me there one of these days, I am totally fed up. Please separate us, I am no more interested in the marriage.’’
However, the 45-year-old wife said all her husband’s allegations are lies. She claimed her husband wants to take in another wife, hence, his refusal to allow the court settle the matter amicably.
“He is accusing me wrongly because he wants to take another wife, please help me beg him.”
Just recently, the 13-year-old marriage between Ganiu Aremu and his wife, Omolola, was dissolved by the an Ibadan customary court, because the wife allegedly starved her husband of s*x.
