A man who was accused of choking his wife, admitted that he only beats her when she grabs his private parts, a court in Nigeria heard.
31-year-old Omoronike Ishola petitioned the Family Court in Lagos, to dissolve her six-year marriage because her husband, 35-year-old Wasiu Ishola, beats her on a regular basis.
Wasiu Ishola however, denied the allegations, saying that he only beats his wife when she grabs his private parts.
Omoronike Ishola said that when she met her husband, he promised to take care of her and her son, but after they married he refused to take care of the child and she had to place him with her mother.
She also said that her husband beats her all the time, and sometimes even tried to choke her. Omoronike Ishola wants the judge to approve her petition for a divorce.
The husband denied the allegations.
Wasiu Ishola told the judge that his wife is very stubborn and constantly fights with the neighbors. He also said that he never beats his wife except when she grabs his private parts.
As a result of his admission, the judge sentenced the husband to 7 days community service after finding him guilty of assault.
