A teacher who wants to divorce her husband after learning that he brings other women home to sleep with when she leaves for work has taken him into court.
The disgruntled teacher, Mrs. Ella Obi, reportedly told a customary court in Nyanya, Abuja, on September 29, 2022, that she could no longer live with her husband, Adomi, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
The Mararaba, Abuja, resident who filed the suit detailed the several times her spouse had cheated on her and lied to her before she finally said enough.
In the divorce petition, Ella Obi said: “My husband sleeps around with everything in skirt and sometimes he brings them into our matrimonial home and introduces them as distant relatives.
“He sleeps with them I’m off to work in the morning.”
The petitioner even went further to recount how her husband impregnated her domestic worker, who he had been having s.x with without her knowing.
Meanwhile, Adomi, the respondent, who himself was present in the court, denied the allegations leveled against him by his unhappy wife.
Having listened to the two sides of the matter, the presiding judge, Doocivir Yawe, adjourned the matter until October 13 for further hearing.
Last week, a woman expressed joy and appreciation to God for touching her husband’s heart to decide to divorce her.
An Area Court sitting in Ilorin on Thursday, September 22, 2022, dissolved the Islamic marriage between Waheed Hafiz and Adama Hafiz.
The court presided over by Judge AbdulQodir Ahmed heard that Waheed Hafiz wanted to end the marriage because he was fed up with the relationship with Adama, despite having two children.
Unlike in some cases where the respondent to the divorce petition would initially reject the divorce request, Adama said she was happy that Waheed decided to divorce her.
It is unclear why she was excited by the divorce, but NAN quoted her as saying “Alhamdulillah” instead of being sad.
The court dissolved the marriage and made the woman have custody of their two children, while the man has the right to visit his children any day, but at reasonable times, the news agency reports.
Adama pleaded with the court to order Waheed to return her laptop to her in addition to a sum of money he owed her. She also wanted him to cater for the children’s education, healthcare, and feeding.
Waheed, on his part, said that he had sold the laptop for N20,000. He promised to refund the N30,000 he owed Adama and also agreed to pay her N20,000 for each of the two children every month, as she requested.
The court adjourned the case to October 13, to enable the wife to provide evidence and witnesses on the husband’s ability to pay N40,000 monthly for his children’s upkeep.
As it stands, however, both Adama and Waheed are now duly divorced and independent of each other.
