My husband is too aggressive, I can’t tolerate his brutality anymore – Woman tells court
A divorce seeking 30-year-old housewife, Tawa Shakibu, has approached a customary court to pray the court to dissolve her 14 years marriage on the aggressive behaviours of her husband.

The court, which is an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court, Agodi in Ibadan, was reportedly approached by Tawa with allegations against her husband, Olaide, whom she accused of having attempted to stab her with a knife before.

The mother of four told the court on Monday that her marriage had been characterised with unrest, hatred and constant beatings from her husband.

 “My lord, Olaide is too aggressive and I can no longer tolerate his brutality and nagging.

“There was a day he nearly stabbed me with broken bottles and a knife, but the quick intervention by neighbours saved me from an untimely death,” NAN quoted her as saying.

Tawa also accused her husband of neglecting his paternal responsibilities, saying she had been responsible for the upkeep of the four children from the marriage.

She prayed the court to dissolve the union so as to save her from an untimely death.

In his defence, Olaide denied the allegations and urged the court not to grant the divorce request from his wife.

He said that the children from the marriage would suffer if the court should uphold his wife’s request.

The president of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, advised the respondent to reconcile with his wife.

Balogun adjourned the case until Sept. 17 for report of settlement or continuation of hearing in the case.
