Mr. Saliu Busari of 9, Akewusola St., Agege, Lagos has been accused of displaying uncontrolled jealousy after 29 years of marriage to Kudirat Busari.
Reports say Kudirat dragged him to a Grade A Customary Court, Alagbado, Lagos on Tuesday, complaining that her husband is fond of beating her whenever he sees her talking to another man.
The 49-year-old woman who sells food, accused her husband of always falsely accusing her of adultery, beating her up, and not meeting his financial obligations to the family.
She pleaded for the dissolution of their marriage by the court declaring there’s no more love existing in the union.
She revealed to the court that she got her last beating over missing piece of meat in her pot which her salesgirl refused to give Busari.
“On March 22, Busari came to my shop when I was not in and ordered my sales girl to give him meat, but the girl refused. This made my husband to beat me severely that night when he came home. I am tired of beatings,’’ she lamented.
“He beats me up any time he sees me standing with another man,’’ Kudirat said.
Busari, 55, denied all allegations against him but admitted that their relationship is devoid of love.
Mr. M. O. Jolaoso, who presided over the hearing, adjourned the case till September 10 for further hearing.
