A man filed for a divorce because his wife defended herself when he tried to rape her, according to court documents in Nigeria.

50-year-old Chibuzo Obiedefu appeared before the Family Court in Lagos, asking a judge to dissolve his marriage of seven years because his wife demands money in exchange for sex.

Obiedefu told the court that his wife, Philomena, 40, always tells him that he needs to pay for sex, and when he tries to rape her, she hits him with improvised weapons.

Obiedefu also accused his wife of cheating on him. The husband alleges that his wife tells his children not to speak with him because he is a bad person.

The woman denies all the allegations, saying that she only asks her husband for spending money. She urged the judge not to grant her husband a divorce because she still loves him.
