Welder requests dissolution of marriage for “lack of respect” from his wife

A welder, Augustine Okuwewuna, approached a customary court in Igando on Thursday to seek a divorce from his wife for allegedly being disrespectful and doing things of his own free will. The petitioner, residing at No. 23, Oremeta, Abaranje road, Lagos, said that his wife had become a threat to his life and that she had been doing things that were against her religious belief. “My wife doesn’t see me as her husband; she doesn’t take me into account and does things as she pleases. ”In all the houses we have lived in, we have never lasted a year; it’s just this recent one that we’ve stayed in for six years. “Whenever I sleep, he sprinkles me with water, saying it is holy water; she has fought with all her children and my sister. “In fact, she has kicked out my children; she once sued for peace but she told them that she was not interested, since she does not have a husband. I want a divorce,” she said. The respondent, Ijeoma Okuwewuna, said that her husband was short-tempered and would get irritated at everything. “His children from his previous marriage always disrespect me. At one point, one of them was very sick and I nursed him back to life. “Despite my efforts, he still used a flashlight to hit me when he saw that my husband and I were arguing. “His children always provoke fights between us. Also, our frequent fights stem from the fact that I don’t have a child for him. So everything I do or say makes him angry,” he told the court. Ms. Okuwewuna further alleged that her husband also liked to call her “ashewo” (prostitute), adding, “This is someone I am married to. “He knew that his people performed a rite for me that automatically prevents me from being intimate with any other man besides my husband.

The defendant also said that her husband had prevented her from working since they were married, adding that he had also refused to set up a business for her or attend to her needs. “My husband is also used to drinking himself to a stupor,” said Ms. Okuwewuna. She also added that her husband had beaten her on several occasions, claiming that he used a key to stab her in the right eye, causing it to bleed profusely.
