Save me from committing murder, ” divorce-seeking man tells court: Family : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
Mr Chike Eze, on Monday prayed a Customary Court in Igando, Lagos to dissolve his marriage with wife, Racheal, “to save him from committing murder’’.
“She is pushing me to the wall. If I should retaliate, I will kill her.“I don’t want to kill her, so that I will not be charged to court for murder. The best option is for the court to end our marriage so that we can go our separate ways.
“She always hits me with dangerous weapons in which I sustain wounds.“Rachael fights and rains curses on me everyday. She once deflated my car tyres and tore my clothes to pieces on several occasions.“The last time, she picked up a standing mirror and threw it at me.”The mirror landed on me and caused severe injuries on my leg. I have several scars on my body as a result of her assault on me,’’ he said.
He said that his wife goes out on different occasions without his consent and whenever he queried her, she would say that she owns her body and could do anything with it.
She accused her husband of infidelity.“My husband is having an affair with my friend. I begged him to end the relationship but he refused.
“My husband had two wives and children before he married me, it was the same beating that made the other wives to run for their lives.
”My husband is a drunk and whenever he is drinks, he will vomit and urinate everywhere in the house,” she alleged.
Rachael urged the court not to end their marriage that she still loved her husband.
However, the court president, Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, granted the prayer of the petitioner and dissolved the marriage.Koledoye held that since the petitioner insists on divorce after several interventions, the court was left with no option other than to grant Eze his prayer.
