Lagos Court Dissolves Marriage Of 21 Years Over Wife’s Poor Cooking

A 54-year-old man, identified as Ashimiyu Abiodun, has asked an Igando Customary court in Lagos to dissolve his marriage of 21 years over his wife’s alleged poor cooking.

The man, according to Punch, said his wife and mother of his children, Aisha, was lazy and had ruined the shop he equipped for her on three occasions.

He recalled, “My wife did not know how to cook. Her food was always tasteless. Anytime she cooked and I complained about her food, she would tell me to cook myself. And I started cooking my food because if I had continued eating her food, I might have fallen sick.”

Abiodun added, “My wife was very dirty; she would not wash or sweep the house, everywhere in the house used to smell. She kept packing used plates for four days or more without washing them and I was always doing the cleaning.

“Aisha would go out every Friday and return on Sunday evening. During weekdays, she would leave home by 7 a.m. and return at midnight and I dared not query her. Aisha had turned my children against me, they had stopped respecting me and she would not allow me to correct them whenever they erred.”

He further stated, “On several occasions, my wife and my first son had torn my clothes in the public when I wanted to beat him for his wrongdoing.”

However, his 46-year-old wife, Aisha, said she still loved her husband and pleaded with the court not to grant her husband’s plea.

She said, “I did not know why my husband stopped eating my food. I tried my best to give him good food but he was always complaining that my food was tasteless. I was not dirty, as I was always cleaning the house.”

Punch gathered that the President of the Court, Adegboyega Omilola, insisted that the petitioner, Abiodun, was adamant despite all mediation to save the marriage.

He stated, “Since the petitioner has insisted on divorce after several interventions, the court has no choice than to dissolve the union despite the wife’s claim that she still loves her husband.

Omilola continued, “The court pronounced the marriage between Ashimiyu Abiodun and Aisha Abiodun dissolved today; both parties, henceforth, cease to be husband and wife. Both are free to go their separate ways without any hindrances or molestation.”
