A husband asked a court to dissolve his marriage because his wife regularly beats his mother and other family members, according to court documents filed in Nigeria.

40-year-old Kayode Adeoti appeared at the Lagos Family Court, to start divorce proceedings.

Adeoti told the court that his wife of seven years, Lolade Adeoti, beats his mother as well as his other family members. As a result of the beatings, Kayode Adeoti suffered serious injuries.

Kayode Adeoti told a judge that his wife is an angry woman who does not like to see any of his family member. Kayode Adeoti said that when he tries to stop his wife from acting out against his relatives, he receives the abuse instead.

The husband also accused Lolade Adeoti of buying dinner instead of cooking the meals herself. Lolade Adeoti also refuses to do laundry, saying that she is not a slave.

35-year-old Lolade Adeoti denied all the allegations. She accused her husband’s brothers of beating her. Lolade Adeoti however, urged the judge not to grant her husband a divorce because she still loves him.
