Kingsley Agina, a businessman, approached an Igando Customary Court in Lagos on Monday to help dissolve his 10-year-old marriage to his wife, Obianju.
Kingsley accused his wife of bringing men to their matrimonial bed for sex. The 49-year-old father of four also added that he believed his wife poisons his food.
“My wife is promiscuous; she used to bring men into my house to sleep with them, whenever I travel abroad for business.” He said. “There was a day I came back from my business trip, I discovered that my glass center table was broken. I asked my daughter who broke it, she told me that it was one uncle her mother brought home that broke it.”
“There was also a day I discovered that my bed was shaking, I called a carpenter to come and repair it. But when we lifted the bed up, we saw several used tissue paper under the bed.” He added.
Mr Agina alleged that his wife occasionally took money from his account with his ATM card to give to her boyfriends.
“Since year 2008, I have noticed that my food was being laced with poison, which has resulted to my deteriorating health; I could not sleep nor walk. I have spent about N5 million on medical treatment, but I never get well in fact my health is getting worst. My mother-in-law is a native doctor, she has a shrine; she has been the one giving her daughter poison to kill me so that they can inherit my property.” He told the court.
Kingsley begged the court to dissolve the marriage on the ground of lack of love. However, Obianju, 35, denied all the allegations saying her husband was the promiscuous one.
“My husband brings home different girls of different sizes and colours. I once saw condom in his bag so I went to buy him a packet of condom and gave him. He queried me on my action and I told him that he needs it, so that he will not contact any disease to infect me. I have been faithful to our marital vow; I have never had sex with any other man. My husband married me a virgin at the age of 25.”
The mother of four also said that she never poisoned her husband. “How will I poison the father of my children, what do I stand to gain, my hands are clean, I don’t know how poison got into his body.”. On the matter of the money she withdrew from his account, she told the court the N100,000 was for the upkeep of the house.
She made a pleaded to the court against dissolving the marriage saying she still loved her husband.
The court president, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, after listening to the couple adjourned the case to Dec. 6 for judgment.
