Abidemi Dada, an engineer, has prayed a customary court in Mapo, Oyo state, to dissolve his 13-year-old marriage to Opeyemi over alleged sex starvation.
According to NAN, Dada told the court on Friday that his life has not remained the same since his wife started denying him sex.
The engineer, who lives in Oke-Bola area of Ibadan, said several efforts including involvement of their pastor to make her turn a new leaf proved abortive.
“My life has not been the same since my wife began the strange behaviour of constantly denying me of sex,” he said.
Dada said apart from starving him of sex, Opeyemi also disrespects him.
The situation, he added, has made it difficult to achieve peaceful coexistence in their marriage.
“My wife also ignored our pastor’s advice. There is no peace in our marriage. She also insults me,” he said.
Reacting to Dada’s complaints, Ademola Odumade, president of the court, urged the relatives of the couple to counsel them.
Odumade noted that there was still sign of love between the two and enjoined them to exercise patience.
He consequently adjourned the case until August 6 for judgment.
The development comes at a time when there are growing concerns over surging cases of sexual assualts in the country.
