He always showers the dog with compliments.”

“My husband turned me into a punching bag, he beats me at the slightest provocation. There was a day he beat me in public and tore my cloth.” she said
While revealing that she no longer love Kazeem, the woman asked the court to dissolve the marriage, saying
“I live every minute of my life in fear. Save me from the cruel hands of my husband and grant me the custody of our children,” she prayed
Meanwhile, Kazeem was not in court to respond to the allegations.
According to reports, Kazeem had been served hearing notices several times but he did not show up.
The court president, Adeniyi Koledoye, adjourned the case until Jan. 18 for judgment.
