Odunade said the court was compelled to dissolve the union between  Ogbuefi and Juliannah due to irreconcilable differences.

He ordered Ogbuefi to pay N12,000  to  Juliannah as house rent.

The arbitrator also directed the plaintiff to pay another N3,000 to the respondent in order to enable her to move her property while urging the duo to maintain the peace.

Earlier in his petition, Ogbuefi, a  media consultant,  told the court that his wife  had become a threat to his life while also denying him his  conjugal rights.

“My lord, I no longer have rest of mind because my life is no longer safe.

“Juliannah has now refused to carry out  her conjugal rights. These also includes  cooking my food and all other aspects which can bring about happiness between a  husband and  a wife.

“She is a  highly disobedient wife who is not ready to support me  in realizing my ambition of greatness in life.

”In fact, Juliannah has no respect for my relatives and I as her  level of arrogance is  immeasurable.

“Worst still, I am now a high blood patient as a result of  the  squabbles.

“Our four children no longer want to have anything to do with us due to their mother’s misbehaviours  and  we don’t even know where they stay.

“On several occasions, landlords sent us packing from their apartments as a result of Juliannah’s quarrelsomeness and bad interpersonal relationships.

“I had  moved out of our apartment three weeks ago  as there is  no more love between us,” Ogbuefi said.

Juliannah, on her part, did not challenge the  allegations raised by her husband.

She, however, said  that her husband had made life difficult for her.

“My Lord, Ogbuefi is addicted to smoking cigarettes  and does not cater for me.

“  I deeply love him and it is not my wish to part ways with him,  especially because of the children.

“However, if he has made up his mind about leaving me, I will also move on,” Juliannah said.
