My wife, kids beat me frequently, man alleges

A 62-year-old retired banker, Mr Kazeem Ogidan, on Wednesday sought the dissolution of his 36-year-old marriage to his wife, Risikat, by an Ikorodu customary court in Lagos.

In his petition, Ogidan who accused his wife of beating him begged the court to grant him a divorce.

He said, “My wife beats me, she has also instigated our four children to beat me. My firstborn has threatened to poison me.

“Our third born has also threatened to stab me. They conspire against me every day.”

However, Risikat (58), a trader, denied the claims and accused her husband of not making her happy.

She said, “My husband is always fighting me. I have no rest of mind.

“My children grew up watching their father beating me. They try to defend me. They have never beaten him.”

The President of the court, Mrs Saadat Quadri, asked the children to be present in court over the allegations that their father laid against them and adjourned the case to May 26. (NAN)
