A 60-year-old man, Asimi Olanrewaju, on Monday dragged his wife before an Ikorodu Customary Court in Lagos State, seeking the dissolution of their 16-year-old marriage, over alleged rudeness.

Asimi told the court that he could no longer tolerate the disrespect from his wife, 39-year-old Mujidat Olarewaju.

The petitioner told the court that there was no more love between them.

He said that the respondent started showing disrespect to him in 2014, but they were reconciled through court intervention.

“My wife is so rude; she refused to change her attitude, even when I complained."

“She has no respect for me; Mujidat does things on her own will."

“She also attends parties without informing me. I have also caught her in acts of infidelity."

“Mujidat does not care for me and our children. I can no longer cope with this marriage, please terminate our relationship,’" he told the court.

In her response, the respondent denied the allegations against her.

She appealed to the court to reconcile her and her estranged husband.

The President of the court, Mrs Omolara Abiola, cautioned the couple to restrain from further misunderstanding, until the next adjourned date.

Abiola, however, warned the respondent to desist from going out without the approval of her husband.

She also urged the respondent to show respect to the petitioner.

Abiola adjourned the case till March 19, for possible settlement.
