Man Wants Court To Dissolve Their Marriage Over Wife’s Battering

A 55- year-old retired civil
servant, Mr Emmanuel Osuya, has asked an Igando Customary Court, Lagos, to
dissolve his 32-year-old marriage over alleged battering by his wife. Osuya
told the court on Wednesday that his wife, Abigeal Osuya, 50, had turned him
into a punching bag.
He said she beat him on any
slight provocation.
Osuya told the court that
his wife always threatened his life through battery that he was afraid she may
kill him one day.

“My wife wants to kill me;
she beat me almost every day with dangerous weapons. On three occasions, she
broke my leg, preventing me from going out for days,’’ he said.
Osuya also accused his wife
of turning his children against him, thereby making them to hate him.
“Abigeal succeeded in
creating enmity between me and my children, she tells them false and damaging
stories about me in order to hate me.
“So my children only care
for her by sending her money and other items every month, without extending
their love to me, they always ignore me as if I do not exist,’’ Osuya said.
The petitioner described his
wife as a thief.
He said that she always
stole his money, rendering him financially broke.
“I cannot keep money at home
again because my wife will steal it.
“ She acted as if she is not
always satisfied with the money I give her in spite of the fact that my
children always send her money every month,’’ the petitioner said.
Osuya said that Abigeal
always starved him of food.
He appealed to the court to
dissolve the marriage, saying that “I am no longer interested in the marriage,
I don’t want to die now, more so that I am out of love’’.
