An estranged husband, Nicholas Johnson, on Monday asked an Igando Customary Court to dissolve his five-year-old marriage with his wife, Adesola, 35, over alleged threat to set him ablaze.
The 40-year-old businessman explained that his wife accused him of infidelity and always rained abuses on him.
“Adesola often threatens to pour a keg of petrol on me and set me ablaze.
“Whenever I go out and come back late, she will accuse me of being in the company of a woman. When I receive a call, she will say I am talking to my girlfriend and she will fight me.
“In fact, I can no longer talk to a woman again.
“My wife does not have regard for me. She always rains curses and abuses on me. Most times, she talks to me as if she is talking to her son.
“My wife carted away my food-warmer, freezer and my bag that contained valuable documents. Please, divorce this loveless marriage before Adesola will carry out her threat of setting me ablaze.”
The presiding Judge, Mr Moses Akinniyi, in his ruling held that the marriage be dissolved as the couple were no longer interested in the marriage and all efforts to reconcile both parties had failed.
“Since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.
“The court pronounces the marriage between Mr Nicholas Johnson and Mrs Adesola Johnson dissolved today; both parties henceforth cease to be husband and wife. Both are free to go their separate ways without any hindrances and molestation,’’ Akinniyi ruled.
The 35-year-old trader, Adesola had denied threats to set him ablaze, saying she accused her husband of infidelity because he was always in the company of a particular woman.
The mother of two, however, consented to the dissolution of the marriage, telling the court she was no longer interested in it.
