A woman identified as Anna Oshomogbe, has asked the Igando Customary Court in Lagos to end her marriage to her husband, Edmund, over claims that his family controls their marriage.

According to Oshomogbe, her husband cannot make decisions on his own without family interference.

“My husband’s mother and brothers are controlling our home.

“If we discuss anything, my husband will first go to his family to consult with them, what they say will be my husband’s final decision.

“I am just like a maid, my decision is always rejected. In fact, I don’t have a say in my matrimonial home,’’

In addition, the pained woman mentioned that Edmund is also a drunk, who staggers into the gutter after spending his salary at a beer parlour.

“My husband always spends his salary with his brothers at a beer parlour and after drinking to stupor, he will be staggering and falling into the gutter.

“He urinates and messes up everywhere in our flat whenever he is drunk and most times, he beats me without reason,”

Anna Oshomogbe also told the court that her husband failed to return when she informed him that their daughter had a fever.

According to her, Edmund said he was at a beer parlour and could not come home.

“When my daughter fainted when she had fever, I called my husband to come home so that we could take her to the hospital, he said that he was in a beer joint and that he could not come.

“He does not sleep at home most times as he stays with his brothers or mother.

“He always tells me that nothing can separate him and his family.

“I pay the house rent and the children’s school fees because my husband refused to pay,”

The respondent, Edmund, has been served by the court bailiff on the orders of the court president, Mr Adegboyega Omilola.

The case has been adjourned to June 28, 2016, for more consideration, according to The Nation.
