A teacher, Mrs Precious Anthony, who resides at Karu Village, FCT, has asked a Jikoyi Customary Court to dissolve her marriage that her husband plans to kill her by stabbing her to death.
Precious, the petitioner told the court while testifying in the case on Thursday.
“My husband almost stabbed me to death after he has consumed excess alcohol.
“This has been his usual behaviour, anytime he comes back drunk, he never lets me be.
“He sometimes beats me up for doing nothing,” she said.
She said her husband recently threw her out of the house with their only daughter.
“When my husband threw me and with my daughter, I did not know who to run to, so I had to go back to my parent’s house in Jos,” she told the court.
The petitioner also said that her husband did not come to see them in Jos not until after Six months.
According to her, even when he managed to come and see us, he came drunk.
“He even beat me up in my parents’ house and threatened to kill my brother who came to defend me while he was beating me,” she said.
She begged the court to dissolve the marriage and grant her custody of the only child of the marriage.
Monday Mipan, the respondent, who is a security man and was present in court, denied the allegations.
Monday told the court to dissolve the marriage if his wife wants it so.
He begged the court not to grant custody of the only child of the marriage to his wife.
The presiding judge, Labaran Gusau, advised them to give room for reconciliation but they refused, saying their is no more love in the marriage.
He adjourned the case to Sept. 28 for judgment
