Court dissolves marriage over wife’s poor cooking habit

By Judith Ezeudogu

 

Abuja   –     A Nyanya Customary Court in Abuja on Tuesday dissolved a 22-year-old marriage of a driver over his wife’s habit of cooking only once in a week.

The court presided over by Mr Jemilu Jega granted the request of Mr Garba Pakachi, ruling that the union was irretrievable.

“This court has tried everything within its powers to resolve the issues between the parties, but all efforts proved abortive.

“The irreconcilable differences between the two parties showed that they are no longer compatible; therefore, the marriage is hereby dissolved,’’ Jega said.

He gave the custody of three of the four children of the marriage to their father and granted their mother, Martha, the custody of the last child, aged six years.

Jega ordered the man to pay N20,000 monthly for upkeep of the child.

“Because he is the biological father of the child, he must provide N20,000 for the upkeep of the child,” he said.

He also directed that Garba should take responsibility for education and healthcare of the child.

Earlier, Garba, told the court that Martha cooked for her family only once in a week.

He submitted that Martha could not spend time with the family but gave all attention to her business.

Responding, Martha denied the allegations, but said she was no longer interested in the marriage.
