Monsuru, on Deceber 19, 2013, urged the court to dissolve his marriage to Adijat whom he alleged was always fighting him and threatening his life.
Forty-year-old Mosuru, a carpenter, who resides at 42, Oluwole Olaniyi Street, Orile Agege, Lagos State, accused 35-year-old Adijat of always fighting him and causing him public embarrassment.
“My wife is in the habit of checking my phone whenever I return from work, and if she sees any strange number, she starts fighting me.
“She is very troublesome and will always curse and embarrass me in public anytime we have a little misunderstanding.
“She doesn’t have respect for my family; she abuses my mother and always threatens to beat any of my younger ones if they come to our home.
“Her behaviour made me find solace in another woman. Please separate us before she kills me,’’ Mosuru prayed the court.
Adijat, a petty trader, who lives at 42, New Era Street, Alimosho, Lagos State, did not deny the allegations, but pleaded with the court not to grant her husband’s request.
“I did all because my husband chases everything in skirt. The worst is that he’s having an affair with my best friend.
“He left the house since last year to an unknown place and I am sure he’s living in a woman’s house.
“I am not ready to leave him because of my children,” she said.
