A woman filed for divorce after accusing her husband of stabbing her lover with a knife, according to court documents in Nigeria.

38-year-old Sade Ariyo of Ekiti State, told a judge that her husband, 70-year-old Jimoh Ariyo, attacked her lover when he came to her home to have sex.

Sade Ariyo said that since her husband does not tolerate her lover, she no longer wants to be married to him. Sade Ariyo claimed that she no longer feels safe in her home due to the behavior of her jealous husband.

Sade Ariyo has two children with Jimoh Ariyo. Sade Ariyo revealed that she started dating her lover because her husband refused to support her and the kids.

In addition to a divorce, Sade Ariyo demanded N8,000 a month for maintenance and child support. Jimoh Ariyo was arrested on a charge of assault, following the stabbing incident.
