The aggrieved wife had approached the Oja-Oba Customary Court, Mapo, Ibadan, Oyo State, seeking divorce from her husband, who she described as abusive and violent.

Ronke told the court that her husband, Sunday Olanrewaju, beat her up anytime he saw her with male customers, adding that each time the police were brought in, he would boast that he was a prominent politician.

She said, “My lord, he also beat up my mother like a baby. Separate us now, or else, I will poison him. Each time I discuss business with male customers, he would beat me and say they were my lovers.”

However, the husband, Sunday, begged the court to sustain the marriage, saying his wife was like a mother to him.

The President of the court, Chief Henry Agbaje, fixed September 18, 2018, for ruling.

He said although the case required urgency because of the woman’s threat, it was also important to give room for reconciliation
