“My wife sends her brother to beat me up” – Mechanic tells court



A man identified as Adekola Ayodele, has asked a Mapo Grade A Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve the marriage between him and his wife, Bolanle on the grounds of domestic abuse.

He claims she makes their family house uncomfortable, once got him arrested over what he knew nothing about and usually sends her brother to beat him up.

The applicant, a mechanic pleaded with the court to grant him custody of the two children and to also restrain the respondent from coming close to him.

Ayodele said: 

”I never enjoyed any moment of peace since I married my wife. Bolanle has no regard for me. She sends her brother to beat me up for no reason.

“Worst still, she nearly killed me the last time because she held my private p@rt to cut it off. In fact, Bolanle got me arrested over a matter I knew nothing about. In short, her wish is to control me”.

On her part, Bolanle, a trader argued that all she did was in self defecnce, but she kept silent on most of the allegations leveled against her.

“My lord, everything I did was in self-defence. Our last fight had to do with the issue of who should take the children to school. My relatives and his have tried on many occasions to intervene, but no amicable solution was reached.

“I squeezed his private p@rt because Ayodele put his hands on me. He grabbed my neck in an attempt to strangle me. He starves our three children and I l. I am not interested in the marriage anymore,” Bolanle said.

President of the court, Mrs S.M. Akintayo held that Ayodele could not substantiate his earlier claim that he paid the bride price before securing Bolanle’s hand in marriage and so rendered the traditional marriage invalid.

Akintayo said since they were no longer interested in living together under the same roof, they were free to go their separate ways. She granted an order, restraining the wife from further threatening, harassing, and interfering in the personal life of Ayodele.
