A teacher, Joy Eze, on Thursday dragged her husband Nuel Chukwu before the customary court in Jikwoyi, Abuja for refusing to eat the food she cooks because he suspects that she wants to poison him.
Mrs Eze, who resides in Jikwoyi, Abuja, made the allegation in a divorce petition she filled against Chukwu.
“I cannot continue to live under the same roof with this man. He has stopped eating my food, when I confronted him on the issue, he said that he is aware of my plans to kill him.
”He also told members of his family that if he dies I should be held responsible,” she said.
She also told the court that Chukwu has turned the children’s mind against her.
“My husband keeps telling my children terrible things about me. He told them that I was a prostitute. He told them that all the clothes and shoes I wear were bought by my lovers,” she said.
She begged the court to dissolve the marriage and grant her custody of her children.
The respondent a tricycle driver, who was present in court, denied all the allegations.
The presiding Judge, Labaran Gusau adjourned the matter until Sept. 21, for further hearing.
