A Nigerian man has said he will end his 7-year-old marriage because his wife did not vote for the presidential candidate of Labour Party, (LP), Peter Obi.
He made the vow to leave her after learning on Saturday, February 25 that she voted for the opposition candidate in the presidential election.
A video making the rounds online shows him ranting at a polling unit about his wife’s decision and saying he will lave her for such an action.
Some electoral officials could be seen trying to pacify the angry man.

In related 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.
