A middle-aged man, Emmanuel Olamurin, on Friday, pleaded with at an Akure Customary Court to dissolve his 21-year-old marriage, accusing his wife, one Modupe, of trying to kill him.

“My wife wanted to kill me by clutching and pulling my manhood,” he told the court; adding that his wife was a “great threat” that he could no longer live with.

He also alleged that Modupe was fond of stealing his money, and cited some instances. According to him, the respondent has sold some property belonging to the family, without his consent.

In her response, the respondent denied the allegations and insisted that the marriage contract must remain. She accused him of promiscuity, saying that it was the main reason for his call for dissolution of the marriage.

According to her, she once caught him on bed with one of their neighbours, adding that instead of showing some remorse, he declared that he was at liberty “to do anything”.

She stressed that elders had intervened to resolve the issues, but that her husband had always turned deaf ears.

Ruling on the case, Modupe Alex-Adedipe, the president of the court, advised the complainant to desist from committing all the atrocities his wife was accusing him of.

She urged him to take proper care of his family, especially their only child and adjourned the case to September 15 for further hearing.
