He narrated:

“I told her that she must not vote for him but she insisted, which led to a quarrel which attracted the attention of our neighbours…

I slapped her and told her to choose between voting for Buhari and staying with me. She afterwards ran away.

Later her parents called me and I narrated to them what transpired between us.

But still my wife insisted on voting for Mr Buhari, that’s how I divorced her in the presence of her parents.”
