A man identified as Gyang Gyang has filed a lawsuit against his wife, Jemima before a Customary Court in Nyanya, Abuja on grounds that she was not submissive to him.

Gyang also told the court that his wife travels a lot without informing him and not contributing to the welfare of the house.

According to NAN, the petitioner said the allegation in a divorce petition he filed against his wife before the court.

“As the man of the house my wife is supposed to let me know when she’s travelling but she travels whenever she wants, without telling me.

“I only find out she has travelled when I don’t see her in the house. She doesn’t take orders from me, and she disrespects me,” Gyang said.

“My wife has never been a supportive wife. She left the upbringing of our children for me. I suffer from diabetes and hypertension. She has refused to disclose how much she earns as salary to me. She is not contributing to the welfare of the family,” he said.

The petitioner prayed the court to dissolve his marriage before he dies of high blood pressure.

The respondent, Jemima, a civil servant, who was in court however denied the allegations.

The presiding judge, Doocivir Yawe, advised the couple to reconcile, saying but adjourned the case to November 8 for judgment.

“You have been married for over 27 years, at this point where you are supposed to be enjoying your retirement and your children you are in court seeking divorce, please try reconciliation, before judgment is passed,” Yawe said.
