Worried by his wife’s stealing habit, Mr. Tairu Jimoh yesterday approached the Igando Customary Court, Lagos State to annul his three-year-old marriage.
Jimoh, 56, said that his wife, Esther, with whom he had two children in their marriage, had penchant for stealing. He said: “My wife steals my money on a regular basis and because of her love for stealing I no longer keep money at home. “She stole my cooking gas and also my land documents.”
The petitioner said that it was not his wish to marry his wife initially, adding that it was because she told him that God revealed to her that he was her husband.
He said: “My wife deceived me into marrying her, she told me that God revealed to her that I am her husband and I believed her.”
Jimoh, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said that Esther did not care for him and that she had vowed never to cook for him.
