A businessman, Rasheed Ogunwande, yesterday, made an impassioned plea at a Yaba Customary Court to dissolve his 10-year-old marriage on the grounds of drunkenness.

Ogunwande, 43, who resides at 10, Araromi Street, Onike, in Iwaya area of Lagos, told the court that his wife, Ajarat, was always threatening his life.

He said: “She threatens my life anytime she is drunk. She is also fond of fighting me and raining abuses on me whenever she is in her state of stupor.

“My wife drinks alcohol as if it is water and gets drunk easily. She is a disgrace.”

Ogunwande, therefore, urged the court to dissolve the 10-year-old marriage already blessed with three children.

He said the love he had for her had turned sour.

The President of the court, Mr. Rahim Daodu, who said the respondent had refused to appear in court, ordered the court’s registrar to summon her to appear before him.

Further hearing has been adjourned till January 27.
