Mrs Grace Ekene, a public servant, on Friday begged a Customary court in Nyanya, Abuja to concede to her husband’s request for divorce, on grounds that he hit her and also injured her eye.
The petitioner, who resides in Lugbe, Abuja, told the court;
“My husband constantly beats me.
“My husband is a violent and temperamental man. He beats me at the slightest provocation. I cannot continue,” she alleged.
The petitioner, Ekene who was present in court denied the allegations and prayed the court saying;
“Please order her to bring back my son, since she left my house, I have not set my eyes on my son,” he said.
The presiding judge, Shittu Mohammed, advised the couple to settle their differences out of court.
Mohammed adjourned the matter until Jan. 28, for continuation of hearing.
