When a man beats his wife, it is bad, however, common. But when a wife beat up the man, it becomes an unusual act.
A man is seeking divorce in the law court because his wife beat him up after he confronted her for giving away her car to her pastor.
The 46-year-old man, Ogah A., told a Mararaba Upper Area Court that his wife, Helen, beats him up regularly because he is physically challenged.
According to newsmen, Mr. Ogah urged the court to dissolve his 13-year-old marriage which is blessed with four children because he can not stand his wife’s regular beating. The petitioner also said he once bought a car for his wife but she gave the car to her pastor without his knowledge or consent.
“My wife beats and disrespects me because I am deformed in my hand. I came back from work one day and she told me that the pastor had an accident with the car and when I confronted her that I did not give the car to the pastor, she slapped me. I received the beating of my life from her to the extent that she grabbed my private parts and tried to kill me,” Ogah added.
The abused man also told the court that it had been over a year since he had sex with his wife because of the injury he sustained when she grabbed his private parts.
Helen, however, was not in court in spite of the court’s summons on her. The presiding judge, Ibrahim Shekaru, adjourned the case to September 2, 2016.
Unfortunately, Mr. Ogah is not the only man who is being harassed physically by his wife, however, the likes of him do not get as much attention from the public, like women who are being physically battered.
