My Beloved Husband Has Turned Me Into a Punching Bag -Wife Begs Court to Dissolve Her Marriage
A Nigerian woman has dragged her husband to a court begging that her marriage be dissolved over her husband’s attitude.
A housewife, Hawawu Isa, on Thursday begged a Mararaba Grade 1 Area Court, Aso Pada, Nasarawa State to end her marriage to husband Nuhu Isa, claiming that he beats her frequently.
At the hearing, Hawawu, 28, told the court that she got married to her husband sometime in 2012 according to Islamic rites.
“I married my husband sometime in 2012 but we have not been blessed with a child.
“My husband does not take his responsibilities as a man serious to take care of me by providing food or medical bills for me.
“He has inflicted so much injury on me, there was a time he beat me till I fainted and was rushed to the hospital by neighbours.
“I am scared due to his frequent beating and I have lost interest in the marriage which yielded nothing.
“There is no love between us. I urge the court to grant my plea and divorce us,’’ Hawawu said.
She described her husband as “an irresponsible man’’ who does nothing other than beating her for no reason and without any provocation.
The respondent was absent in court.
The Judge, Owuna Musa, ordered that a summon be issued to the respondent before the adjourned date.
Musa adjourned the case to May 3 for continuation of hearing.
