Man Granted Divorce Over Wife’s Late Meals

A Nigerian court granted a 57-year-old man a divorce after hearing that his wife often brought his meals to him too late in the evening.

 A court in Lagos heard that Olufade Adekoya was at the end of his tether after Olusola, his spouse of 25 years, refused to serve him when he demanded.

“My wife had failed in her matrimonial obligations. She does not prepare my food on time and I have warned her several times, but she would not listen to me,” he was quoted as saying.

“There is no point in harbouring a wife that makes me hungry. I am totally fed up,” Adekoya told the hearing, for which the paper gave no date.

His wife denied the alleged dereliction, accusing her husband of plotting to take another wife.

But court president Olu Adebiyi reportedly dissolved the unhappy union, concluding: “The court had tried several times to reconcile their differences, but all efforts proved abortive.”
