An Idi-Ogungun Customary Court at Agodi, Ibadan, on Friday, dissolved a 16-year marriage following a petition that the woman’s offered pork as a meal to her Muslim mother-in- law, NAN reports.
A fashion designer, Mr . Kolawole Adegoke, sought the divorce, accusing his wife, Adeyinka , of deliberately flouting his instructions .
In his evidence on Friday, Kolawole said, “ My Lord, the major grudge I have against her is that she intentionally bought and cooked pork for my mother who is a Muslim .
“Her action is disgusting; I see no reason for her to cook such meat which is forbidden for my mother , a Muslim .
“The court should separate us to avoid unpleasant occurrence because I can no longer stay with a woman who perpetrates such a thing . “
He said that Adeyinka lacked respect for him and was being controlled by her parents .
Adeyinka was not in court .
The President of the court , Chief Mukaila Balogun, ruled that the respondent had failed to honour the summons of the court .
Balogun held that the court would dissolve the union based on the evidence given by the plaintiff .
“Parties cease to be husband and wife henceforth, and the court registrar should serve the defendant a copy of the judgment , ” he ruled .
