A frustrated man has urged a Lagos court to separate him from his wife over her incessant demand for money before having sex with him.
PM News reports that the complainant told the court presided by Mr. Adegboyega Omilola that his wife has turned the demand into a habit and anytime he does not have the money to give her, she would become violent, attacking him with different weapons including knives and broken bottles.
“My wife always charged me N500 for every round of sex and would refuse to sleep with me until I give her the money,” Olaosebikan started.
Continuing, he said:
“This, I am sure, is why she has not conceived after the birth of our only child, who is six-year-old now. I am tired of paying N500 per round before having sex with my wife, please dissolve the union.
My wife is after my life; she stabs me with dangerous weapons whenever we have A misunderstanding.
She once stabbed me on my head with a broken bottle and I bled heavily which landed me in the hospital.
Mutiatu used our kitchen knife as a pillow and when I queried her, she said her pastor instructed her to use it against bad dreams.
Many times when I request for sex or during an argument, she brings the knife out threatening to stab me.
She is just aggressive and violent in nature; she may kill me if I continue with the marriage. Because of her violent nature, I ran away from the house to avoid untimely death.”
The divorce seeking man added that his family once ejected his wife from his house for fear of the unknown but that she came back begging and he pitied her and accepted her back.
“I accepted my wife back because I thought she had learned her lesson, but she refused to change; instead she is getting worse day by day.
My wife does not obey my orders; she always tells me that I cannot control her because we are age mate. Her attitude has even made it impossible for her to get a steady job as employers always sack her when she exhibited her character.”
Omilola who noted that he could not make any pronouncements since Mutiatu was not in court, however, ordered bailiffs to serve her to appear and adjourn the case to February 28, 2017.
