'My wife stubborn, diabolical, attempted to kill me'



By Judith Ezeudogu

An Abuja businessman, Mr Ojo Owo has told a Customary Court that his wife, Muyibat boasted that she will destroy, kill or cripple him and reduce him to nothing.

Owo, in his claims in the divorce petition he filed at the Customary Court on Friday, said his wife boasted that when she finishes with him, his family will not recognise him.

He also told the court that his wife once attempted to stab him with a knife.

“One night, my wife took the kitchen knife and attempted to kill me over a little misunderstanding.

“She boasted that she will destroy, kill or cripple me and reduce me to nothing and that when she finishes with me, my family will not recognise me,” he claimed in the petition.

The petitioner also told the court that the respondent is “so stubborn, disrespectful, manner less, diabolical and unfriendly” with anyone around him.

According to him, the respondent’s constant fights have caused him to develop high blood pressure which he will be nursing for the rest of his life.

The petitioner further averred that he had to abandon his matrimonial home to save his life due to the intolerable behaviours of the respondent “who constantly threatens my life”.

He urged the court to dissolve his marriage and grant him custody of the children.

The respondent, Muyibat, also a businesswoman, however, denied the allegations.

The Judge, Thelma Baba, advised the couple to explore avenues for amicable settlement for the sake of the children, and adjourned the matter until March 7, for hearing. (NAN)
