A public servant, on Monday, prayed a Customary Court in Nyanya, Abuja for the dissolution of his marriage to his wife on grounds that he has not had a single day of peace in seven years.
The petitioner Mr. Ekene Odinaka, who resides in Jikwoyi, made the allegation while testifying against his wife Chioma in a divorce petition he filed against her.
“I am exhausted in this marriage. Since I married my wife, I have not known peace. She is always fighting me. The worst of it all is that she pours water on me to disturb my sleep. She goes around castigating me. She tells everyone who cares to listen to her that I am a bad man. This has greatly tarnished my image,” he alleged.
He told the court that he would give N10,000 monthly for the upkeep of their baby and also get his wife a job so that she will have enough money to carter for their baby.
