A commuter bus driver, Surajudeen Lukman has told an Agege Grage â€˜Aâ€™ customary court, Lagos State, Nigeria, how his wife, Aishat allegedly denied him of sex after she discovered that he had lost his job.
Lukman revealed to the court that his estranged wife shunned every attempt he made to make love to her, alleging that she has started going out with another man.
He claimed that Aishatâ€™s infidelity was discovered by a marabout who presides over a night prayer session she attends.
He stated that he began to notice strange behaviour of his wife even as he tried to discourage her from attending the night prayers.
The driver disclosed that he made several efforts to win back her love but she refused to change her wayward, ways and that was why he was seeking divorce.
Aishat in her defence denied all the allegations leveled against her by her husband, explaining that she decided to leave her husband house three years ago after realizing that he was not interested in her and the children of the marriage.
She said that feeding, clothing and payment of school fees fo their children had become her solely responsibility in the last three years.
She prayed the court to dissolve the marriage without delay while ordering Lukman to pay N19,000 for school fees and N25,000 for the childrenâ€™s upkeep.
However, the court president having listened to both parties, adjourned the suit for further hearing and warned both of them to maintain absolute peace.
