‘My Wife Beats Me Every Day, Many Times, I Go into Coma’ – 65-Year-Old Man Recounts Ordeal in Court

A 65-year-old man has reportedly filed for divorce from his wife of 18 years before an Asaba High Court alleging that she beats him daily and is an harlot.

According to Punch, he told the court,

“My wife wants to kill me, she beats me every day, and she is a harlot. I can no more continue with the marriage for the above reasons and moreover, she drove away my children that my first wife had for me before she died.

I married my wife in 1998 and did the church wedding at Catholic Church of Assumption, Zappa, in Asaba. Since then, we have two children; a boy and a girl, but this woman always threatens to kill me, she beats me at every chance, and many times, I go into coma. She vowed that she must kill me and she sent all my children packing, I cannot continue with the marriage.

She beats me most times, but it came to a climax on January 17, 2016, when she took something and hit my head in an attempt to kill me, so that I would not be able to pursue the divorce case in court, but thank God, her mission did not come to reality as I overcame her plan.

She is a harlot, she beats me every day. I cannot eat her food again because she is a harlot. It is against my tradition and I want the marriage dissolved before she kills me.”

His wife, said to be in her 40s, denied her husband’s allegations, saying, “what will make me to beat or attempt to kill my husband? We stay in the same house, sleep on the same bed, I am taking good care of him, but I don’t know what is wrong.”

The case was adjourned till February 17, 2016, when the man is expected to come with his first son.

Who do you think is telling the truth here?
