Unemployed man seeks divorce from fifth wife, gives reasons


A 54-year-old man, Mr. Sheyi Imoohi, on Thursday asked an Ikorodu Customary Court in Lagos State to dissolve his marriage, saying his wife is a drunk.

Imoohi, presently unemployed, told the court that he was no longer interested in the four-year marriage which is blessed with one child.

The husband, who lives at Agbede Transformer, Agric Road in Ikorodu, described his fifth wife as a drunk and a trouble maker.

“My wife drinks a lot; I mean she drinks to a stupor. She usually fights me and threatens to kill me.

“I am no longer in love with her; please separate us,” the petitioner pleaded with the court.

Responding, the 35-year-old wife, Sarah, who is also unemployed, denied the claims and accused her husband of taking her to the beer parlour where she drinks.

“My husband is not saying the truth; I don’t drink the way he described me; I drink only when I follow him to beer parlour.

“My husband is a flirt and any money he has will be spent on other women. He sometimes asks me if he could still take back his ex-wife.

“He wants to divorce me so he could marry another wife; please I pray for settlement,” she said.

The Court President, Mrs. Funmi Adeola, ordered the couple to remain at peace while the court investigates the matter.

She also ordered the husband to pay N3,000 to his wife for their child’s feeding allowance through the court.

Areola adjourned the case until February 20 for continued hearing or judgment.
