A man who was obviously fed up with his wife has prayed the Oshodi Grade B customary court in Lagos State to dissolve the 8-year-old marriage over an alleged sex starvation.
Chukwudi Obi, has told how he has been forcing his wife, Nkechinyere to have sex with him while the union lasted.
He said, “Ever since I started living with my wife, she never allowed me to have sex with her. I had to force myself on her before we had our four children,” Obi said.
The woman had initially filed a petition against her husband in court asking them to stop her husband from getting a second wife.
The man also told the court how his wife threatened to stab him with a knife in 2010 when he attempted to have sex with her.
“Since she started living with me, my wife would always find it difficult to have sex with me. I do not know what her problem is. We had our four children through the use of force.
“When I saw that things were getting out of hand, I took her and the children to the village so that her parents could talk sense into her.”
The woman on her part alleged that Obi abandoned her and their four children and focused more on his girlfriend, although the man dismissed the claims which he tagged as false.
He said, “I did not abandon them as she said because I was sending her N10,000 on monthly basis to take care of the children; I have the tellers here.”
According to Daily Post, the President of the court, Alhaja A.I. Olorunimbe, ordered Obi to continue to pay his wife N10,000 monthly for the children’s upkeep, pending the determination of the suit.
Olorunimbe called on both parents of the couple to devise strategies through which the pair can resolve their issues.
The case was adjourned till May 27, 2015 for further hearing.
