A Nigerian man identified as Adewole Bankole has approached a Court C Customary Court in Mapo, Ibadan, Oyo State for the dissolution of his 17-year relationship to his wife, Grace Bankole.
According to the estranged husband, his wife has exhibited severally signs of stubbornness, disregard and disobedience.
The estranged husband also claimed before the court that his wife was usually in the habit of raining curses on him even when they are engaged in sexual activities.
Nigerian Tribune reports that Adewole whose wife was absent before the court pleaded for the dissolution of the union on these accounts.
Adewole was reported to have told the court; “My lord, I pray the court to deliver me from the bondage I led myself into called marriage. I’ve known no peace or rest of mind since I entered into it 17 years ago.
“I’m married to a woman who is as stubborn as a goat. She insists on having her way always.
“My wife has no regard for me and disrespects me every time. She readily flouts my orders. I noticed she was moving with politicians at the grassroots level and warned her against joining politics but she disobeyed me and went into it fully.
“Any time I try to show my displeasure over an issue, she turns it into a fight. She will shout and humiliate me before our children and neighbours.
“My lord, my wife curses me any time we are having sex and this reduces my libido. I’m fed up with her, please separate us.”
The court president, Chief Ademola Odunade, however noted in his judgement that the love between the couple had waned, made evidence by her absence in court and therefore granted the dissolution of the 17-year-long union.
