A 65-year-old pastor, Kunle Akinseyi, while seeking for the dissolution of his 32-year-old marriage to his wife, Titilope on Thursday told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos that his wife has turned him into a punching bag.

Akinseyi told the court that his wife, with whom he had six children beats him at the slightest provocation.

He said, “I live every minute of my life in fear; save me from the cruel hands of my wife; I have suffered so much in silence.

Anytime we have misunderstanding, she can beat the hell out of me.

“Most times, it is our neighbours that always come to rescue me from her hands,” he said, describing his wife as a troublemaker and a fighter’’.

“My wife’s hobby is fighting; she fights me and neighbours regularly, and because of her frequent fighting, we are always ejected from any house we rented.”

Akinseyi pleaded with the court to dissolve the union as he was tired and was no longer in love with her.

Responding to her husband’s claim, 56-year-old Titilope, denied the allegation saying she was was beating her husband.

“I have not raised my hands towards my husband since the beginning of our marriage,” she said.

The 56-year-old, described her husband as an irresponsible father as he has refused to cater for their children.

“When I got pregnant for our sixth child, he denied the pregnancy; he went to my family in the village and told them that I was carrying a bastard child and that they should come and take me.

He refused to give me money for ante-natal; so, I delivered my baby in the house. It is our first born that has being training the boy till now,” she told the court.

The mother of six however alleged that her husband, though a pastor, wanted to divorce her so as to make room for him to marry another.

She asked the court not to grant her husband’s wish as she still loves him.

Ruling on the case, President of the court, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, advised the couple to maintain peace while adjourning the case till November 16.
