March 29, 2016 – Retired Nigerian Soldier Accuses Wife Of Rape, Divorces After 20 Years Of Marriage

Gafaru Rodoye, a retired soldier told an Igando Customary court in Lagos, southwest Nigeria that “My wife has turned my boxers to rags as she always tears them to rape me.”

He told the court on Tuesday that his wife, Idiat, with whom he had five children in their 20-year old marriage, always raped him.

“My wife always rape me; she had turned all my boxers to rags to achieve her selfish aim,” he said.
The petitioner said that his wife was in the habit of threatening his life through beating and that he was afraid she might kill him one day.

“I had to run away from my 16-flat building to rent an apartment elsewhere just to avoid her frequent beatings, but she trailed me to my new apartment to fight me.

“I have reported her severally to different police stations, but it did not yield any positive result,” he said.

Gafaru said that his wife poured hot water on the new wife that was brought for him from the village by his family.

He begged the court to end their 20-year old marriage, saying he was no longer in love as his life was in danger.

“Please, separate us before my wife kills me, my life is not safe with her, I am a pensioner, I need to enjoy the fruit of my labour.” he said.
However, Mrs Idiat Rodoye, 44, business woman, denied all the allegations, saying her husband was a womaniser.

“My husband runs after anything in skirt, he always sends me packing from the house whenever he wants to bring in another woman.
“He once sent me out with the children for three years.

“After sending me out, he had married six different women, but none stayed long with him. He then begged me to return home,” she said.

The mother of five said she never raped her husband, that it was normal for husband and wife to make love.

The respondent said that she did not beat her husband, but it was her husband that was always beating her.

Idiat said that her husband removed the plasma television, air conditioner and disconnected the electricity supply from her flat, leaving her and the children in darkness.

She urged the court to grant her husband’s wish that she too was tired of the marriage and no longer in love.

The Court President, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, adjourned the case to June 9 for further hearing.

  1. Who do we believe now…..They should just settle the issue amicably between them or they should go their separate ways if love no longer exist in their marriage

  2. there is no truth in what the retired soldier said. As I read through, the truth is shining on the woman’s side. How can you starve your wife of sex and instead got married to new wife where you will be satisfying your sexual urge? Won’t you be satisfying that new wife in bed since you are a virgin your first wife always rape and beat? This is pure wickedness! After you sent her packing for 3 good years, in that period you married 6 wives and none stayed with you, then you begged her to come back when you were left frustrated. This alone will tell the whole world how womanizing and stupid you are. I’m happy that your wife is also tired of the marriage. Foolish man!

  3. THE MAN MAY BE DENYING HER OF SEX WHILE RUNNING AFTER THE ONES HE CONSIDERS FRESH. I DONT KNOW THE ROOT OF THEIR PROBLEM THOUGH!

  4. U both just said it all dat there z no more luv…but i just pity d children who won’t hv dat previledge 2 live wit both of d parents anymore

  5. The problem of this man is himself: he does not know what he wants. And it is only a foolish man would go to a court to accuse his wife of raping him.

  6. The both of them are tired of living together as man & wife, so the court should do justice to them by divorcing them

  7. Your wife did not rape you when you marry her some years back, still rapping you after having the first child, second child and third child? but after marrying another small girl from the village to refreshing your blood, your old wife is now a rappist abi? this man must be an insane man, idiot!
