My wife chased me out of my house, man tells court

A 55-year-old civil servant, Ezekiel Daniel, yesterday approached a Mararaba Grade 1 Area Court in Aso Pada, Nasarawa State, seeking the court’s intervention to end his 12-year-old marriage with his wife, Janet.
The petitioner alleged that Janet had chased him out of his house.

Daniel told the court that he got married to his wife sometime in 2005, according to the native law of Kwara and the marriage was blessed with two children.

He said sometime in 2014, his wife seized his car keys, locked the door and refused to allow him access to the car, adding that she later chased him out of the house.

“For three years now, I have been living in a rented apartment and I have been boarding commercial vehicle to work since then.

“My wife is uncontrollable when she is angry; abusive, disrespectful and nags over things that are not worth making issues of,” the petitioner said.

“My wife quarrels and fights with our neighbours over little things, thereby bringing shame and disrespect to me.’’

He begged the court to dissolve the marriage as he no longer loved Janet.

“Please terminate the marriage as it has broken irretrievably and all effort to resolve the matrimonial issues have not yielded any good result,” he begged the court.

Janet, 45, denied all the allegations made by her husband saying that he did not tell the court the main problem facing the marriage.

She said her husband was just trying to tarnish her image by saying all that and leaving out the problem.

Janet added that she still loved her husband and begged the court to give them time to settle.

The judge, Mr Albert Maga, adjourned the matter till September 21 for report of settlement. (NAN)
