A 40-year-old divorce seeker, Rashidat Ogunniyi, Thursday, told an Igando Customary Court that her “husband loves his dog more than he loves me.”
Mrs Ogunniyi, 40, who is seeking dissolution of her 12-year-old marriage, told the court that her husband, Kazeem, was only concerned about the welfare of his dog.
“Kazeem is an irresponsible husband and father, he lacks care and love for me and our children.
“He only cares about the health, happiness, and safety of his dog. He always showers the dog with compliments,” Mrs Ogunniyi, a trader, said.
The petitioner also said Kazeem was domineering and violent.
“My husband turned me into a punching bag, he beats me at the slightest provocation.
“There was a day he beat me in public and tore my clothes.
“He once gathered my clothes and wanted to burn them but for timely intervention of our Imam who came to the scene and stopped him,” she said.
The mother of three said she had not been at peace since she got married.
