One Mrs. Shakirat Salau has asked Ikorodu customary court to dissolve her marriage to Mr. Kehinde Salau citing threat to life, battery and other irreconcilable differences.
The petitioner, Shakirat seeks to end the 10 years union with her husband because he beats her whenever she denies him sex.
“He loves beating me because of sex. Whenever I say no to sex, he would beat the hell out of me
“He does not give me rest of mind and he beats me whenever he gets provoked. He often threatens to pour hot water on me.
“I become frightened whenever we fight and he boils hot water on a stove ready to splash it on me,” she told the court.
Shakirat begged the court to separate them and grant her custody of the children.
In defence, her husband told the court that she’s too stubborn.
“I only threaten her with words of mouth.
“Just imagine, I can’t stand her deny me sex,” he said.
The presiding judge, Mr. A. Adebiyi in ruling instructed Kehinde to desist from violence, warning him not to beat his wife over sex again.
The case was then adjourned till March 22, for further hearing.
