A Civil engineer, Kazeem Azeez, on Friday told a Mapo Customary Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo State that his wife is a devil.
Azeez made the claim while seeking the dissolution of his 10-year-old marriage to his wife, Fatimoh.
The engineer, who resides at at Ayegun-Olomi area of the state told the court, “My Lord, little did I know that I was inviting the devil into my house when I married Fatimoh 10 years ago.
“As soon as she got into my house as a wife, Fatimoh, started showing the stuff she is made of by tormenting and fighting me and my first wife.
“In fact, nobody in this court can stop her anytime she is ready to fight. As I speak My Lord, Fatimoh has already driven out my first wife with her children.”
He also noted that other than fighting him, Fatimoh had also caused disharmony in the family.
“I have sworn not to have anything to do with her again because she is threatening my life and she is highly disobedient and unwilling to take instructions from me,” he said.
On her part, Fatimoh denied the allegations and objected to the dissolution of the marriage.
She said: “My Lord, it is true that Kazeem and I have had some misunderstandings and he is largely responsible for the misunderstandings.
“My husband, Kazeem, says he does not want me to be pregnant again; he enjoys having sex with me but does not want to hear that I am pregnant.
“Anytime I told him that I missed my period, Kazeem will quarrel with me and that is the major problem between us.
““I don’t fight or beat his first wife except that she usually look for my trouble.
“However, my lord, please give me a chance to correct my bad attitudes and I promise that within the next few weeks or months, my husband will have cause to tell you good news about me.”
After listening to the couple, the President of the court, Ademola Odunade adjourned the case till September 26 for continuation of trial.
