Mild drama ensued at a Nyanya Customary Court Abuja on Tuesday where a civil servant, Blessing Ilo, told the court that she was fed up with her husband’s antics.
Blessing accused the husband of incest saying he has been having canal knowledge of his biological daughter.
Mrs. Ilo who disclosed the husband’s name as a certain James Akpan said she was filing for divorce because it was apparent to her that Akpan was no longer interested in performing his role as husband.
“All the while I was living with my husband and that little girl of 12 years, I don’t know that my husband was always having sex with her when am out of the house.”
“I would not have suspected anything because when my husband brought the little girl into the house, he told me that she was one of his children from another woman.”
“Also, the girl was still a child that no sane man will lust after”
Blessing told the court that the little girl had on an occasion confessed to the police that her own father would always tie her before having canal knowledge of her.
Ilo said that she had to move out of her husband’s house because he was always messing up the house, especially when he was drunk.
“My husband always urinate around the house whenever he is drunk; sometimes on the bed or on the floor of the room.”
“Worst of all, one day he woke up in the night and went straight to the kitchen, opened the bucket of drinking water and urinated into it”
She also said her husband does not provide food for the family, adding “not even his child’s school fees.”
The petitioner begged the court to dissolve the marriage and grant her custody of the only child of the union.
The presiding Judge Jemilu Jega said the respondent has been served with the court papers on three different instances but has consistently refused to appear before the court.
The cases been however adjourned till the 9th of February.
