Former coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Chief Adegboye Onigbinde has filed a divorce suit against his wife Abiona at the Ibadan Customary Grade C Court sitting in Mapo.
According to The Nation, Onigbinde alleged that his wife is violent and stubborn and unwilling to live harmoniously with him.
During proceedings on Friday, the court’s president Odunade Adewuyi told Abiona of the allegations and asked if she wants the marriage to be dissolved.
She said she wants the marriage to continue, adding that she does not know the reason for the divorce suit.
The court said: “If his (Onigbinde) prayers are heard by the court, do you think the marriage should not be dissolved? Which steps did you take after your husband complained about these allegations? Does he like your attitude? Let us say you are the husband and your wife says he doesn’t want something, won’t you know?”
The woman replied: “He said he doesn’t like it. He said I’m violent, but it is not so. I called the first child and told him about it. Also, I told my child and my husband’s elder brother. Our children went to beg him but he refused.”
The court adjourned the case but not before Onigbinde asked for protection, saying that he was nearly attacked when one of their children and her husband came to their house.
