She threatens me with broken bottles; I want divorce - husband
Segun Ayinde, Abeokuta
A middled-aged man, Surajudeen Sanyaolu, has dragged his estranged wife, Senabu Sanyaolu, to a customary court sitting in Ake, Abeokuta, Ogun state, for always using broken bottles to threaten his life.
Surajudeen told the court that his wife of two years was fond of raining curses and using broken bottles to threaten his life whenever they have disagreement.
The father of one, who prayed the court to dissolve his marriage with his wife, said he had reported her many times to her mother and family members but all efforts yielded no fruitful results.
He explained that his wife, after making trouble with him and threatening him as usual, packed out of their matrimonial home without his notice in 2019.
Surajudeen said that, since he married Senabu two years ago, he had not had peace of mind because of her frequent trouble, fighting, curses and her stubborn attitude.
He is, therefore, praying to the court for ” free dissolution of their two-year-old marriage on the ground of frequent fighting, no rest of mind, stubbornness, cursing and threatening of his life with bottles.”
The man also demanded an order of the court to restrain the wife from further coming to his house or work place to foment trouble or cause any form of harassment for peace to reign.
In her defence, Sanabu, explained to the court that her husband was not man enough to care for her and their only child.
She denied ever threatening the life of her husband with bottles, raining curses on him, saying that she left the house when she discovered her husband did not love her again.
The president of the court, Mrs A.O Abimbola, ruled that the child should stay in the custody of her mother and adjourned the case for further hearing.
