54-year-old Taiwo Salami today prostrated in an Ikorodu Customary Court to beg his wife not to divorce him after 27 years of marriage. Salami, a respondent in a divorce petition said that his life would be meaningless if his wife pack out of his house.
I don’t want to separate from my wife because her presence in my life has brought much glory to me.
“I beg this court and everybody here present to appeal on my behalf to her that she will be quickening the exit of another life if she divorces me,’’ Salami said.
Salami said that her wife’s tooth that was removed in a squabble they had was by mistake, saying it happened when I was trying to stop her from biting my male organ during a fight.
He told the court that he would change the bad habits that compelled his wife to be seeking a divorce.
“Although her testimony is 40 percent to 45 percent true.
“I have asked Olufunmilayo my eldest daughter to beg her mother not to leave me,’’ he said.
The petitioner, Yetunde, 46, urged the court to dissolve the union because her husband was too hot-tempered.
Yetunde said that Salami had threatened to use a knife to stab her if she attempted to leave him.
The court adjourned till June 14 for further hearing.
