My husband calls me a goat, wife tells court.

A woman Aderonke Ojediran, has approached a grade C Customary Court in Agodi Ibadan, Oyo state to seek dissolution of her five year old marriage with Oyeleke Ojediran for allegedly comparing her with goats.

Aderonke also complained that she was seeking divorce because Oyeleke had refused to pay her bride price and had been threatening her life. Another reason for the divorce, the plaintiff was the lack of care on the part of Oyeleke for the only child of the union. She said: I packed out of my husband's residence in 2013 when i could no longer cope with his bad character. According to her, sometime in 2013, her husband brought goat inside their sitting room and compared her with the animal saying that she is the same as the goat. She added: He used to beat me and cared less about my welfare and that of the innocent child we have together. In fact, i am tired of the marriage and i don't want to die young. To make the matter worst, he refused to pay my bride price, instead he turned me to a punching bag and treated me as he wishes.

The plaintiff according to the News Agency of Nigeria, [NAN], has prayed the court to please allow her to take custody of the child for proper care and upbringing.

The defendant who admitted to bringing two goats inside the sitting room explained that he compared his wife with the goats because of her bad attitude. He also agreed with the divorce suit, alleging that his wife's troublesome way of life made him develop hypertension.

The president of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, then declared the marriage dissolved. He said: Having listened to the evidence from both parties, it is obvious that there is no more love between the couple and they should go their separate ways as they stand unmarried.
