A man, Kasimu Oseni, has dragged his wife to court to dissolve their marriage, claiming that she beats him regularly.
Oseni approached a Lugbe customary court in Abuja, on Tuesday, January 7. He asked for the dissolution of his 13-year-old marriage to his wife, Rebecca Oseni.
He said his wife turned him into a “punching bag’’ that she beats every chance she gets. He said: “I have tried very hard to provide her needs but she enjoys violence and fight.”
“This is not my idea of marriage. Our continued staying together would not guarantee my security and wellbeing any longer.”
He expressed that his wife made life unbearable for him for many years.

Oseni said: “I am, therefore, urging the court to allow me take custody of my children as their safety and wellbeing can only be guaranteed by me.”
“It will interest the court to know that Rebecca does not do anything to earn a living and therefore would not be in the position to take care of my children.”
Rebecca, however, denied all the allegations levelled against her.
The presiding judge, Esther Omavuezi, asked the couple to provide more evidence to back their claims. She also advised them to resolve their differences before the next hearing date on Tuesday, February 14.
Kasimu Oseni and Rebecca Oseni are blessed with two children.
