She must swear by my village deity – Man refuses to divorce wife until she proves her fidelity
A distraught man, Sunday Enejo has has refused to allow his wife divorce him because he wants her to first confess that she’s been cheating.
He appealed to a Customary Court in Jikwoyi, Abuja, not to grant her application for their marriage to be dissolved until she swears before ‘Aniku’ (a holistic deity) that she was not unfaithful to him.
Earlier, the businesswoman, Rose, alleged that Enejo was a violent man and constantly subjected her to domestic abuse.
However, Enejo who appeared before justice Labaran Gusau, said that he will only allow her to leave after she must have cleared his suspicion by swearing.
He told the court; “I will not grant my wife divorce until she follows me to the village to swear before “Aniku” that she is not having an extramarital affair.”
NAN reports that the presiding judge adjourned the matter until April 4, 2023.
Similarly, a 27-year-old Nigerian lady cried out about being trapped in a relationship with a man she does not love.
She said that when they met 3 yeas ago, she did not love him but he showered her with money and she decided to give him a chance with the hopes that she will develop feelings along the way.
But despite all the good and expensive things he’s been doing for her she still does not love him, now she wants to leave but he keeps threatening her.
According to the lady, he also pays her rent and bought an iPhone which he asks her to return whenever she talks about leaving him.
She is scared and confused because she wants to end the relationship but he keeps threatening her life.
In her words; I’m 27 years of age and I started dating my boyfriend 3 years ago. When we first met, I didn’t love him but he started spoiling me with money and I decided to accept him, but knowing fully well I wasn’t into him.
I accepted him not because of the money but I wasn’t thinking I would love him or I would start to develop feelings for him. But upon all the money he has been giving me I still don’t love him…but this boy have been paying my rent and buying me gifts.
The main problem is, whenever I want to breakup with him then he goes mad… he would be threatening my life and even asking me to pay back all the things he has been doing for me especially the iPhone.
