According to punch, At the resumed hearing, the petitioner told the court that he was fed up with Ajarat’s way of life.
“Ajarat has become used to fighting me with dangerous weapons when we have minor misunderstandings.
“She usually checks my phone and accuses me of infidelity. In fact, she once destroyed my phone during argument.
“She is fond of attending parties with her friends without my consent; and she never respects me as her husband and father of her two children. I cannot continue to tolerate her stubbornness,’’ he said

She, however, pleaded with the court to save her marriage.
The President of the court, Mrs. Funmi Adeola, urged the couple to maintain peace pending the determination of the case.
