A man named Chika Eze has asked the court of Appeal in Lagos State to dissolve his marriage or he will kill his wife. According to LIB, the 55-year-old man filed a petition before the court saying, there is no love left between him and his wife, therefore, he wants the marriage dissolved
The man, Eze, accused his wife of not letting him live peacefully over the past few years.
On Monday, the 10th of February 2020, he appeared before the court of appeal in Lagos State and asked for annulment as soon as possible
Mr Eze went further to state that the annulment will save him from committing murder
He said, “she always hits me with dangerous weapons which inflict wounds on me,” adding that if he retaliates, he will kill her
Eze told the court: “ She is pushing me to the wall; if I should retaliate, I will kill her. I don’t want to kill her so that I will not be charged to court for murder.
The best option is for the court to end our marriage so that we can go our separate ways. She always hits me with dangerous weapons which inflict wounds on me.
Furthermore, he told the court, Rachael fights and rains curses on him every day. He alleged that she once deflated his car tyres and tore his clothes to pieces on multiple occasions
“The last time, she picked up a standing mirror and threw it at me. The mirror landed on me and caused severe injuries on my leg…,” he said to the court.
The court has reportedly adjourned the case to a later date for further hearing.
Recall the Nigerian woman Maryam Sanda was sentenced to death for killing her husband just recently.
