‘My Wife Has Abandoned Her Duties, Now Involved In Church Activities” Husband Tells Court 

A man, Aku Bakari, has dragged his wife, Mary, before a Customary Court in Nyanya, Abuja, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), for allegedly getting too involved in church activities.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the petitioner, who resides in Nyanya, Abuja, in his divorce suit, accused his wife of abandoning her duties as a wife and mother.

“My wife no longer has time for me and our children. She is always going to church. She sometimes goes to church on Friday and sleeps there until Sunday evening.

“She does not care if we eat or not,” he said.

The petitioner told the court that his wife has abandoned her duties as a wife because of church.

He told the court that he tried to stop his wife from going to the church, but that she refused.

“My wife and I were living happily together as husband and wife until 2010, when I started noticing some strange behaviors in her and this especially in her mode of dressing.

“She stopped wearing ear rings and necklaces, claiming that those things belong to the devil.

“That was when I noticed that she had stopped attending our family church, Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria (NCCN), and was attending another church where she is being brainwashed. I told her to stop attending the church, but she refused.

“It is on this account that I wish to divorce her,” he said.

The respondent, Mary who is a cleaner, was present in court but denied the allegations.

The presiding judge, Doocivir Yawe, advised the couple to reconcile for the sake of their children and adjourned the case.
