A husband, Abdulganiy Kehinde, has sought the dissolution of his 15-year-old marriage to Baliqees Abdulganiyu allegedly for unruly behaviour.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the plaintiff told the court that his wife had given him hypertension by her troublesome behaviour.
Abdulganiy said that their marriage was contracted in 2000 and had produced five children.
“I have hypertension because of her. I am always scared whenever I am coming home from work because she always causes trouble.
“My lord, I want an end to this marriage because she does not allow me to rest and I don’t want to die young,” he said.
He urged the court to grant the divorce request as well as award him the custody of the children.
The Presiding Judge, Mr AbdulQuadir Ibrahim, adjourned the case till December 13 for the respondent to enter her defence.
