Save Me From Committing Murder - Man Tells Court

Mr Chike Eze, on Monday, prayed a Customary Court in Igando, Lagos to dissolve his marriage with wife, Racheal, “to save him from committing murder’’.

Save Me From Committing Murder - Man Tells Court

The 55-year-old businessman, alleged that Racheal, had become a thorn in the flesh for two years.

He said;

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 in which I sustain wounds.

Rachael fights and rains curses on me everyday. She once deflated my car tyres and tore my clothes to pieces on several 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. I have several scars on my body as a result of her assault on me.

The petitioner presented pictures of the injuries and scars to the court as evidences.

According to him, his wife goes out on different occasions without his consent and whenever he queried her, she would say that she owns her body and could do anything with it.

While responding, Rachael, denied all the allegations, accusing her husband of infidelity.

She said;

My husband is having an affair with my friend. I begged him to end the relationship but he refused.

My husband had two wives and children before he married me, it was the same beating that made the other wives to run for their lives.

My husband is a drunk and whenever he is drinks, he will vomit and urinate everywhere in the house.

She prayed the court not to end their marriage that she still loved her husband.

Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, the court president, granted the prayer of the petitioner and dissolved the marriage.

According to the court president, since the petitioner insists on divorce after several interventions, the court was left with no option other than to grant Eze his prayer.

Koledoye ruled;

The court, hereby, pronounces the marriage between Mr Chike and Rachael Eze dissolved and both henceforth cease to be husband and wife.

Each of you should go your separate ways unmolested, the court wishes both of you well in your future endeavor.

The petitioner is to pay severance of N150,000 to his wife for her to move on with her life
