A businessman, Mr Justine Onu, on Thursday, urged a Customary Court in Jikwoyi, Abuja, to dissolve his marriage to his wife, Joyce, alleging that she is wasteful and extravagant.

The petitioner told the court that his wife does not know how to manage things in the house.

“My wife doesn’t know that things are hard in the country. Whenever she decides to cook, she cooks excessively and the food ends up in the trash,” he said.

The petitioner also told the court that his wife was very promiscuous and he was tired of the marriage.

Onu informed the court that he had developed high blood pressure because of his wife’s alleged promiscuous character.

He further alleged that his wife was irresponsible and does not take care of the children.

The respondent, Joyce, however, denied all allegations, and the presiding judge, Labaran Gusau, adjourned the matter until November 17, for further hearing. (NAN)
