Abeokuta – A businessman, Mr Seyi Ogundeji, on Friday pleaded with a Customary Court in Ake, Abeokuta, to dissolve his marriage to Biola on grounds of threat to life.
Ogundeji, 34, who resides at 17, Oke-Bode, Abeokuta, accused Biola, 29, of public embarrassment and incessant fighting.
“My wife is very troublesome; she usually curses and embarrasses me in the public anytime we have a little misunderstanding.
“She also squanders the rents I collect from my tenants. Sometime ago, she stole my N200,000. She denied stealing it.
“Her behaviour made me to marry a second wife. Please separate us before she kills me’’, Ogundeji urged the court.
Biola, a petty trader, did not deny the allegations, but pleaded with the court not to grant her husband’s request.
“All he had said is true, but I am ready to change my ways.He wants to send me away so that the second wife can move into our apartment.
“Help me to appeal to him because there is no man that will marry me at this age”, she said.
The couple is blessed with a child.
The President of the court, Mr Israel Fajebe, said that there was little room for reconciliation and fixed Feb. 13 for judgment. (NAN)
