Swear before my village deity you’re not adulterous, husband tells divorce-seeking wife

1 min read


A man, Sunday Enejo, begged a Customary Court in Jikwoyi, Abuja not to grant his wife divorce until she swears before “Aniku” (a holistic deity) that she was not having extramarital affairs.

Businesswoman, Rose, in her divorce petition alleged that Enejo beats her.

But Enejo said: “I will not grant my wife divorce until she follows me to the village to swear before “Aniku” that she is not having an extramarital affair”.

Earlier, Rose said her husband was a violent man.

The presiding judge, Labaran Gusau, adjourned the matter until April 4 for a hearing.
