“My wife is a lazy and unproductive, woman” man seeking divorce tells court


An Customary Court located in Ikorodu, Lagos, on Monday, April 30, resolved a dispute between a couple, Peter Obaze and his wife, Chiamaka Obaze, whose 11 year old marriage was almost at the point of collapsing.

The husband, Mr. Peter, 47, who is a marine engineer, had instituted a divorce charge in the month of March 2018, with claims that his wife who should be supportive, is not. He also complained that she was unproductive and lazy.

“My wife is too lazy, she became lazy after our first child, I have wanted her to start a business; even her brother gave her money to earn a living but she could not.

“She always provokes me and she does not take good care of me.

“I am not interested in the marriage anymore; please separate us,” the petitioner, who lives at Oriokuta Street, Ogijo in Ikorodu, Lagos state, told the court.

The wife, Chiamaka, 40, who is a mother of three children and also a trader, on the other hand, had pleaded with the court for reconciliation earlier, and promised to become a better wife.

However, following the intercession of the court of law, which was presided over by Mrs. Funmi Adeola and the families of the couple, they were settled.

The husband also wrote a letter of withdrawal of case to the court of law, telling them that they would work towards resolving their issues and settling their differences amicably.

The wife, Chiamaka,  was ordered by the presiding judge, Adeola, to sign an undertaking promising that she would turn a new leaf by being a good housewife, and a productive, supportive and respectful wife, which she did without hesitating.

“The undertaking would also indicate that you will now be supportive and also help your husband build a bright future for your children,” the Judge said.
