I’m Sex-Starved, Wife Tells Court

AN Abuja-based businesswoman, Doris Unekwu, has urged a Customary Court in Jikwoyi, Abuja, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), to dissolve her marriage to her estranged husband, Matthias on the grounds of denial of her conjugal rights.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Doris, in a divorce suit filed against Matthias, accused him of engaging in masturbation, physical and psychological abuse and denying her of her conjugal rights.

“My husband has long stopped having intimacy with me. I have done all that I can, but he still will not.

“On one occasion, I caught him masturbating and when I asked him why he engaged in that, he said he saw something online which he wanted to practice,” she said.

The petitioner told the court that her husband comes home late and his reason was that he found more pleasure outside than at home.

Doris also accused her husband of beating her in the presence of their only child.

“My husband constantly abuses and harasses me physically in front of our child.

“My husband will slap me at any little provocation and also abuse me,” she said.

The petitioner prayed the court to dissolve their wedlock and grant her custody of the child produced by it.

The respondent, Matthias, who is a businessman, was present in court, but denied the allegations.

The presiding judge, Mrs Thelma Baba, advised the couple to explore reconciliation and adjourned the case.
