Emmanuel Kayode, of Maraba Area, Ilorin, on Thursday told an Ilorin Area Court that his wife, Omolade Emmanuel was dirty.
The 35-year-old man prayed the court to dissolve his three-year-old marriage to Omolade, for being dirty.
“My wife hardly sweeps our surroundings and bedroom, and that makes our environment irritating and unconducive,” he said.
According to him, their marriage was contracted in 2010 and has produced one female child, Morufat.
He prayed the court to dissolve the marriage, saying that he is tired of his wife’s dirty habit.
The defendant objected to the divorce prayer on ground that she was still interested in the marriage.
“My lord, I promise to keep my home and environment clean, and carry out my domestic chores as expected of me,” she said.
She prayed the court to give them another day for her to make a reconciliatory step.
The Presiding Officer, Mr Ibrahim Abdulquadri, adjourned the case to Oct.3, to enable the parties resolve their differences amicably or continue hearing of the case. (NAN)
