A man Ademola Adelanwa has urged a customary court sitting in the Idi-Ose, Ibadan to end his marriage of 11 years over his wife’s continuous blackmail and wrong accusations.
Ademola who said his wife, Opeyemi embarrasses him in the presence of their family members, neighbours and church members said he could not bare his wife’s nagging habit as he as packed out of the family house and now stays in a rented apartment and also stopped attending church programmes.
He said: “There was a time she accused me of stealing her panties for money rituals.“I was embarrassed when I learnt she had told people about it.“ As God would have it, she later found her panties in the village. “My wife is fond of nagging, causing trouble and likes to prove tough in the home.“I have been putting up with her troublesome nature over the years and on three occasions, considered seeking a divorce, but changed my mind because I had to put some things into consideration.“ I was forced to send her out of our home the last time she fought with me,” he added.
Meanwhile the wife, Opeyemi who prayed that the court should not to grant her husband’s prayer in her defence admitted that she accused her husband of stealing her panties because he was the only person she could point fingers at since he once urged her to allow him use her womb for money rituals.
She stated that they had endured a lot and stayed together despite the low financial status of the family and swore that under no circumstance would she marry another man.
The court president, Amusa Makinde, observed that the two parties had not displayed enough love to sustain their marriage and therefore urged them to have a rethink for the sake of their children.
Amusa Makinde adjourned the case till June 2.
