divorce-in-nigeriaA businesswoman, Mrs. Oyemowo Gabriel, 39, has prayed a Grade 1 Area court in Aso Pada, Mararaba to order her husband, Adenu Gabriel, 45, to “properly” divorce her.

Oyemowo told the court that on May 13, 2013 the husband drove her from the one-bedroom apartment she was living in with him and their three children.

“Whenever he demands for sex and I refuse him on account of the children being in the room, he will beat me up.

“Since he threw me out on May 13 he has taken custody of the children and refused me access to them.

“I am still bearing Mrs Gabriel; if he is not interested in me again, he should tell me and let me know my stand now.

“I also want the court to help me; I need my children, I want to live with my children,” she stressed.

In his defence, the husband, a driver, said: “I did not throw her out of my house. She remains my wife.

“She was the one who packed out of my house, rented a room somewhere and is leaving alone.

“We went to the village and resolved the matter. After we came back she refused to move in with me,’’ he said.

The Presiding Judge, Mr. Albert Maga, advised the couple to try and resolve the matter for the sake of their children.

Maga then adjourned the case until April 11 for a report of settlement. (NAN)
