A 31-year-old businesswoman, Mrs Francisca Obeji has opened up on how her husband impregnated a young woman who he introduced to her as his sister.
Obeji on Thursday, August 18, 2016 approached an Igando Customary Court in Lagos State seeking a divorce from her husband of seven years, Ezekiel Obeji.
She said: “My husband, Ezekiel Obeji, impregnated his `sister’ in our matrimonial home.
“My husband, who married me as a virgin, stopped making love to me three-months after our wedding.
She further disclosed that her husband brought in the woman into their matrimonial home four months after their wedding.
“Four-months into our wedding, he brought a young woman home and introduced her to me as his `sister’.
“He told me that she would be living with us and I accepted, because I didn’t know all his siblings.
“After some months, this his ‘sister’ got pregnant and my husband ran away with her to an unknown destination and sublet our apartment to another tenant without my knowledge,” she continued.
According to her, it became so unbearable that he had to vacate the apartment where she resided with her husband.
She said: “I had to vacate the apartment that day as the new tenant moved in immediately my husband absconded.”
Her husband’s parents did not help matters as they advised her to look for another man who would marry her as they only need a fertile woman as their daughter-in-law.
She added: “When I heard that my husband did the traditional wedding with his so-called ‘sister,’ I travelled to his hometown to confirm from his parents.
“His parents told me they could only accept a fertile woman as their wife, while they advised me to go and look for another man to marry.
“I do not know where to trace my husband as he had relocated elsewhere from the shop I established for him and had also changed his cell phone numbers.
“Ezekiel is ungrateful and I now know that he never truly loved me; he was only after my money.
“When he approached me for marriage, he was jobless, but when he pleaded with me to allow him join me in my business, I accepted.
“After our wedding, he took over the business from me.”
The apparently grieved woman also alleged that her husband turned her into a punching bag and almost beat her to the point of death within the few months of their living together.
She, therefore, pleaded with the court to dissolve the union, saying she was no longer in love and that she would like to move on with her life.
After listening to the petitioner’s plea, the court president, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, ordered her to submit an affidavit of service that would enable the court to continue with the matter despite the respondent’s absence.
He subsequently adjourned the case until August 30, 2016 for further hearing.
