My husband loves his dogs more than me, says 40-year-old lady as she files for divorce

Rashidat Ogunniyi, a 40-year-old Nigerian woman, has requested the Igando Customary Court in Lagos to nullify her 12-year-old marriage on grounds that her husband, Kazeem, loves his dogs more than her.

Rashidat, who is a trader, claimed that her husband was only concerned about the welfare of his dogs.

“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 dogs. He always showers the dog with compliments,” Rashidat said during her cross-examination on Thursday.

The mother of three also alleged that Kazeem is 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 cloth”, she said.

She asked the court to dissolve the marriage, saying she no longer loves her husband.

“I live every minute of my life in fear. Save me from the cruel hands of my husband and grant me the custody of our children,” she prayed.

However, Kazeem was not in court to respond to the allegations. It was gathered that he had been served hearing notices several times but he did not show up.

The court president, Adeniyi Koledoye, adjourned the case until 18 January 2022 for judgment.
