Fashola: My wife may kill me with constant battery

One Baba called Fashola Fakorede, a 75-year-old man, yesterday
pleaded with a Customary Court sitting at Igando Lagos, to dissolve his marriage to Funke, a 49- year-old old wife, for alleged constant beating.
Fashola told the court that his wife had turned him into a punching bag and has inflicted injuries on him.
He said: “My wife wants to kill me, she beats me every day, I don’t want to die now, save my life.
“My wife always beat me if I asked for food or anything. She has turned it to a routine. All
the scars on my body is as a result of her battery on me.”
Fakorede said his wife no longer takes care of him, adding: “She goes out and returns home at will without seeking my permission.
“She can go out for days and if I queried her, she would hit me
with any dangerous weapon she could lay her hand on at that moment.
“And my daughter is also following her footstep. She brings home different men and
my wife will not query her. So, I sent her away from my house.”
He urged the court to dissolve the union, saying he was no longer in love with her and was
tired of the regular battery, which had led to his ill-health.
“I am tired of the constant beating, I am afraid this woman will kill me one day. I am not ready to die now,” he pleaded.
Funke, a trader, denied the allegations, saying that she did not beat her husband and always took good care of him
and respected him.
The mother of three, however, accused her husband of denying his children the right to go to school.
She said: “My husband is unable to send any of his three children to secondary school.
My husband is not responsible.
“None of our children went to secondary school, all of them
stopped schooling at primary school.”
She said her husband had disowned his daughter, and urged the court not to grant his
wish as she still loved him.
“I have no where to go as no man will want to marry me at my age,” she said.
The court president, Mr R. I. Adeyeri, adjourned the case to November 25 for further hearing.
