I stopped sleeping with my wife because she says I stink-Man tells court



A divorce-seeking man, Olanrewaju Adeniran, on Friday told a Grade A Customary Court sitting in Mapo in Ibadan, that he stopped sleeping with his wife, Fatima, because she says he smells.

Testifying, Adeniran, a retired civil servant also sought for divorce on grounds that his wife was rude and was becoming a threat to his life.

“After our wedding in May 1995, Fatima started misbehaving. She is rude to my mother and relatives.”

”She beats me and grabs my private parts. Fatima calls me bastard, lazy man and so many other unprintable names,” he said.”

“The petitioner further said that Fatima has been arrested by the police at the Iyana-Church Police Station for causing breach of peace in the neighbourhood in 2004,” he said.

In her defence, Fatima alleged that her husband starved her sexually for three years without any reason.

She also accused Adeniran of neglecting his responsibilities to his four children.

The President of the Court, Mrs M.A. Akintayo, cautioned the couple.

Akintayo noted with sadness that Adeniran and Fatima have not shown good example to their children who were in court.

She urged the couple to produce their witnesses and adjourned the suit until Jan. 27, for continuation of hearing.
