A man filed for a divorce after his wife decided to pray at a new church, according to court documents filed in Nigeria.

The Yaba Family Court dissolved a 7-year marriage after the couple couldn’t resolve their differences about where to pray.

Okechukwu Ikechukwu filed for divorce, asking the court to dissolve the marriage because his wife, Nkechi Ikechukwu, decided to pray at a new church.

He said that the relationship with his wife deteriorated after she left his church to another place of worship and demanded that he follow suit.

When he refused, his wife threatened to poison his food and refused to have sex with him because he is impure and sinful. Judge Rahim Dawodu dissolved the marriage and warned them to avoid violence.

The couple has one son. Okechukwu Ikechukwu was ordered to give his wife N3,000 ($16.00) each month as child support.
