A 54-year-old man, Ashimiyu Murphy, has asked an Igando, Lagos, Customary Court to separate him and his wife of 21 years, Aisha, for allegedly being a bad cook and “too dirty.”
Murphy also alleged that his wife and his first son had formed the habit of beating him up in public whenever there was any disagreement between the couple.
”Her cooking style is poor. She is a dirty woman, who refuses to clean the house and also cooks tasteless meals. Anytime she cooks and I complain about it, she will tell me to cook myself. I started cooking my food because if I had continued to eat her food, I might have fallen sick.
“She is very dirty; she will not wash or sweep the house. Everywhere in the house used to smell. She kept packing used plates for days without washing them and I was always doing the cleaning,” Murphy said.
He further told the court, “Aisha will go out every Friday and return on Sunday evening. During weekdays, she will leave home by 7am and return at midnight. And I dare not query her.
“Of course, she has turned my children against me; they no longer obey or respect me. She will not allow me to correct them whenever they err.
“On several occasions, my wife and my first son tore my clothes in the public when I wanted to beat him for wrong doing.”
Aisha, in her response, denied her husband’s claim that she had the habit of not keeping the house tidy. She also stated that she didn’t know why her husband had stopped eating at home.
“I do not know why my husband stopped eating my food. I tried my best to give him good food but he was always complaining that my food was tasteless. I was not dirty as I was always cleaning the house,” she said.
Despite all efforts by the court to reconcile the couple and save their marriage, Ashimiyu insisted on the divorce. The President of the court, Adegboyega Omilola, consequently separated the couple.
“Since the petitioner has insisted on divorce after several interventions, the court has no other choice than to dissolve the union, despite the wife’s claim that she still loves her husband,” the court president said.
The court then pronounced the marriage between Murphy and Aisha dissolved, stressing that both parties had, henceforth, ceased to be husband and wife.
“Both are free to go their separate ways without any hindrances or molestation,” Omilola ruled.
