Lady considers divorcing husband because of attack on Igbos in Lagos
An Igbo lady known as Oluomo has revealed that she will divorce her Yoruba husband over the attacks that people from her tribe suffered at the hands of thugs in Lagos.
She made this known on Twitter while expressing outrage over the inter-tribal attack that occured during the governorship election over the weekend.
The young woman said she spoke angrily to her Yoruba husband about the incident and started raining curses on him impulsively.
Oluoma said she queried him about why his people were attacking people from her ethnicity and he also shed tears.
She said; “The rage in me spoke to my yoruba husband harshly today. I didn’t know when I started cursing him & telling him I’m not happy about any yoruba person in this life any longer, I was crying & asking him if it’s fair my people are being killed? Tears just rolled down his cheeks.”
When a tweep suggested that she should divorce him, Oluoma said that she will eventually do that because she is might be tempted to do something diabolic to him if they remain together.

In similar news, a Nigerian man, Taiwo Ajadi, has filed for divorce from wife, Mariam over alleged disobedience and wayward attitude.
The couple appeared before an Area Court in Ilorin, Kwara state where he pleaded for the marriage to be dissolved and he be given custody of their children.
Mr Ajadi and his wife have three children: an 11-year-old girl, a boy, 8; and another girl, 4.
The defense counsel, Maruf Ibrahim told the court that his client, Mariam, agreed to the divorce but not on the basis of the allegations levelled against her.
He said the woman was not in any way disobedient to her husband as Mr Ajadi alleged, neither was she wayward in any manner.
Ibrahim further told the court that Mariam also wanted custody of their three children.
The counsel described the children as minors and argued that the husband should be responsible for their school fees and maintenance.
The Presiding Judge, AbdulQadir Ibrahim, said the applicant should produce evidence and witnesses on reasons why he should have custody of the children.
Ibrahim adjourned the case until March 20.
