Giving account of her experiences, the aggrieved woman said, “He was giving me N10 as feeding allowance either as breakfast or lunch because he said he just lost his job."
“Even when he got another job, Yusuf did not change and in fact, the situation worsened as we continued to depend on concoction."
“Yusuf, most of the times fed on bread and egg with sardine while the children and I took gari or eba."
“My lord, right from the beginning of my stay with Yusuf as his wife, I started experiencing different kinds of bad treatment of which starvation was number one."
“Worst still, Yusuf started having sexual intercourse with my younger sister who came to assist me when I was sick and in fact impregnated her."
“My lord, I still managed to endure with him for 10 years and when I saw that things will not change, I moved out of his house."
“As if those are not enough, he could not pay for any of his children hospital bill, let alone mine."
“During our wedding, so as to make things easy for him, I barely requested him to give me my favourite Islamic music cassette as my bride price and I am ready to refund it.”
Yusuf has however declared his undying love for his wife, telling the judge that he is ready to welcome Sidikat back to his home.
