A housewife, Lami Shaibu, yesterday, urged a Grade 1
Area Court, Aso Pada, Mararaba, Nasarawa State, to dissolve her marriage to her
blind husband, Ibrahim, for alleged excessive sexual urge.
Lami, 38, of Aso
Pada told the court that she was no longer interested in the 15-month-old
marriage. She said: “I urge the court to dissolve this marriage because I can’t
stand his excessive sexual urge. He likes sex too much, I can’t bear it.
“Since I got married to him, there is no peace in
the house, he always beats me, he doesn’t forgive and does not provide food for
the house. “Most times, he would have sex with me from midnight till early
hours of the morning, even when I am crying, he will not stop.”
Lami said: “It is because of his too much sexual
demands that made me to move away from him. I now stay at my marriage
guardian’s house at Aso Pada, Mararaba.” Ibrahim, 56, who resides at the same
address with Lami, denied the allegation, saying: “I still love her with the
whole of my heart. “I, therefore, urge the court to give me time to reconcile
with my wife. I believe she and I can settle the matter amicably.” The judge,
Malam Danladi Musa, adjourned the case to November 18, for settlement or
continuation of hearing.
