A divorce seeking man has pleaded with a court in Lagos to dissolve his 10-year-old marriage because his wife sleeps with men in their home.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 49-year-old businessman told the court that his wife of 10 years is so promiscuous that she brings men into their home to have sex with her on their matrimonial bed.
Aside from being promiscuous, Agina also accused the 35-year-old mother of his four children of poisoning his food.
In his evidence in chief, Agina said:
“My wife is promiscuous; she used to bring men into my house to sleep with them whenever I traveled abroad for business.
There was a day I came back from my business trip and I discovered that my glass center table was broken.
I asked my daughter who broke it, she told me that it was one uncle her mother brought home that broke it.
There was also a day I discovered that my bed was shaking, I called a carpenter to come and repair it.
But when we lifted the bed up, we saw several used tissue paper under the bed. My wife would even steal my ATM card and withdrew money from my account and gave her boyfriends.
Apart from these, she puts poison in my food. Since the year 2008, I have noticed that my food was being laced with poison, which has resulted in my deteriorating health; I could not sleep nor walk.
I have spent about N5 million on medical treatment, but I never get well, in fact, my health is getting worst.
My mother-in-law is a native doctor, she has a shrine; she has been the one giving her daughter poison to kill me so that they can inherit my property.
Since I became sick, my wife’s parent never called or came to my house to ask how I was feeling.”
But Obianuju denied all the allegations her husband leveled against her, saying her husband is even the one who is cheating on her.
“My husband brings home different girls of different sizes and colours. I once saw a condom in his bag so I went to buy him a packet of condom and gave him.
He queried me on my action and I told him that he needs it, so that he will not contact any disease to infect me.
I have been faithful to our marital vow; I have never had sex with any other man. My husband married me a virgin at the age of 25.”
On the allegation of poisoning her husband's food, the businesswoman said:
"How will I poison the father of my children? What do I stand to gain? My hands are clean. I don’t know how the poison got into his body.
I agree that I withdrew N100,000 from his account but it was for the upkeep of the home.”
Pleading with the court not to dissolve the marriage, Obianuju claims she still loves her husband.
The president of the court, Magistrate Adegboyega Omilola, after listening to the couple adjourned the case to December 6, 2016, for judgment.
