Man Catches Wife Burying Coconut In Living Room

Worried by his wife’s fetish acts and threat to his life, Mr Yomi Adekunbi, approached an Igando Customary Court in Lagos State to seek divorce for his 14-year-old marriage.

Yomi said that his wife, Funsho, was making every attempt to terminate his life.

“I once caught her burying coconut in our living room, when I questioned her, she could not say anything. I see different pots of charm in our room, there was a day I opened her wardrobe and I saw my best native clothes stained with blood.

“I shouted and called my wife, she denied knowing how my clothes got inside her wardrobe and about the blood on it. Ever since I married her, I have moved from one problem to another and from one liability to another.

“When she was carrying her first pregnancy, Funsho, suddenly woke me up one midnight threatening to commit suicide by stabbing herself to death, if I ever imagine marrying another wife.

“She did this despite the fact that she is aware that I have nothing forbidden me from marrying as much as four wives,” the estranged man said.

The 45-year-old businessman said that his wife was also wayward.

“Each time I return from work, friends and tenants bombard me with series of atrocities committed by my wife, ranging from fighting to owing people huge debt.

“I was shocked one day, when I was informed by one of my tenants that Funsho was making quick preparation to sell off my house. On getting home, I discovered that she had used my house as collateral for an undisclosed amount she took as loan from a micro-finance bank and had squandered the money.

“I also understand that the micro-finance bank is taking all measures to sell off the house,” he said.

The petitioner further accused his wife of infidelity.

“Funsho is always picking men’s calls, if I request to know the identity of the callers, she refused to tell me or release her phone to me. There was a day she rushed out in the night to receive a call, when she returned, I demanded for her phone, she refused, as I wanted to take it by force, she gave me a dirty slap and ran out of the house with the phone,” he said.

He begged the Court to dissolve the marriage that he was no longer in love and was not ready to die young.

The respondent, Funsho, denied most of the accusations but agreed burying coconut in their sitting room.

“The coconut I wanted to bury was for protection of the family. But I don’t know how blood stained my husband’s clothes,” she said.

The 43-year-old trader said that she was not wayward neither was she planning to sell her husband’s house but agreed that she used the house for collateral.

The mother of three prayed the Court not to put an end to the marriage because of the children the union produced.

After listening to their submissions, the President of the court, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, adjourned the case to November 21 for judgment.
