A mild drama occurred at the Ikeja Grade A Customary Court recently, when a retired staff of Virgin Atlantic airline, Samson Kayode Oniyide, and wife, Helen, traded words over the allegation that she planned to strangulate him when he was asleep.

The divorce-seeking husband had asked the court to dissolve his 12-year-old marriage. Presenting his case before the court president, Mr. Adesina Adeyemi, the petitioner explained that he has been living in fear because his wife always fights him over little things.

He butressed his allegation with an incident during which his wife tried to suffocate him to death by covering his nose with a towel while he was taking a nap. He disclosed that since then, he stopped sleeping in the same room with her, adding that after this failed attempt, she started keeping bad companies.

She keeps on telling me that I dont have any right to challenge her about her movement. I have tried to satisfy her financially, but she keeps on wasting my money.

I have even tried to resolve the matter through our family but all my efforts yielded no result. I want this marriage dissolved and the custody of my children granted to me. My mother is there to take care of them, he pleaded.

Reacting to the allegations, Helen told the court that her problems with her estranged husband started in 2004, when he cultivated the habit of coming home late.

I went to report him to his younger brother but my husband said I have no right to accuse him of coming home late. He also accused me of planning to kill him. How can I kill my husband. He wants to divorce me because he has married another woman. I dont want to divorce him, but if he is hell bent on divorcing me, he cant take custody of my children because I love them dearly, she told the court.

The mater has been adjourned for further hearing, by the court president.
