A 33-year-old man, Tajudeen Onikijipa, has urged an Ilorin Area court in Kwara State to dissolve his marriage to his wife, Zainab Bello, for allegedly abandoning their home.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that Onikijipa said Zainab left her matrimonial home for the past two years with no idea of where she could be.
He said though the union had not produced any child yet, all his efforts to locate her whereabouts had proved abortive.
The plaintiff begged the court to dissolve the marriage to enable him move on with his life.
Zainab was, however, absent in court.
In his ruling, the Presiding judge, Abdulquadr Ibrahim, adjourned the case till November 23 for a new summon to be issued against the respondent.
