Chinwe, 35, amid tears, urged the court not to grant the petitioner’s application  on the  grounds that she had aborted several pregnancies for him...

A hotelier, Oluwafemi Ajadi, on Monday  asked an Agege Customary Court in Lagos  to dissolve his 16- year old marriage to his wife, Chinwe, over threat to life and infidelity.

But Chinwe, 35, amid tears, urged the court not to grant the petitioner’s application  on the  grounds that she had aborted several pregnancies for him before their union was legalised.

The petitioner, a native of Ibadan in Oyo State, told the court that he was no longer interested in the marriage.

Ajadi, who lives at No. 26, Bamgboye St., Mushin, Lagos, described his wife as arrogant and a trouble maker.

“My wife is a party freak; I warned her to desist from moving around  with bad friends but she did not heed my warning.

“ She  also likes frolicking with different men.

“She is not caring and lacks respect for the institution of marriage; please separate us, I can no longer live with her,” he said.

The respondent, who denied the allegations, pleaded with the court to save her marriage.

Chinwe, who hails from Imo, described her  husband as a drunk and wife beater.

She alleged that the petitioner beats her at will and abuses her emotionally because she could not conceive.

“My husband usually drinks to stupor and misbehaves  and this usually leads to serious misunderstandings between us.

The respondent, who vowed  to resist  the planned divorce, said:  ” l have aborted on several occasions for him before legalising the marriage and have wasted the better part of my life.

“In spite of my husband’s attitude toward  me, l still love him and do not want the marriage dissolved,” she said.

Reacting to the court’s plea to him for a change of heart, however, the petitioner urged it  not to waste its time in appealing to him, saying he was committed to the dissolution of the union.

“I wasted several millions of naira on the respondent through Invitro fertilization (IVF) but lost the pregnancy due to her stubbornness and nonchalant attitude,’’  he said.

The court’s President, Mrs Ibironke Elabor, who  advised   the estranged couple to keep the peace, adjourned the suit till  Dec. 14 for judgment.
