A carpenter, Chijoke Okonkwo, on Friday, prayed a Customary Court in Nyanya, FCT, to dissolve his one-year-old marriage.
Okonkwo, the petitioner, who resides in Jikwoyi, accused his wife, Ifeoma, of ill treating his mother.
He pleaded with the judge.
Jemilu Jega, said:-
“I cannot live with a woman who lacks home training.
“I took my wife to the village for my mum to teach her good values and how to be a good wife.
“Instead of my wife to learn, she became worse. She snatched my mother’s phone from her while making a call, pushed and slapped her,” he said.
The petitioner also told the court that his wife also disrespected him after she gave birth to their first child.
“After my wife had our first baby, she started behaving too badly. If I say any little thing, she will slap me and threaten to leave the marriage.
“Then, I was the one begging her not to leave me,” NAN quoted him as saying.
The respondent, Ifeoma, denied all the allegations but begged the court to dissolve the marriage.
