Reading Time: 2 minutes

Mr Lawrence Adigbohun told an Agege Grade ‘A’ Customary Court that his wife, Blessing, brought a concubine to his house, and wanted to stab him with a knife. Meanwhile, Blessing, a 24-year-old factory worker, who was dragged before the court by her husband, told the court that her husband lied to people that she was his niece, and not his wife. ”When I was delivered of our baby, he lied that I was his niece, that I had a problem and that was why I was staying with him for five years,” the embattled wife said.

”My husband is not responsible. He comes home late in the night. He womanises, takes alcohol and enjoys spending money on night club. “At 72, my husband goes crazy for anything in skirt. ”He does not give me money, lies that he has not been paid salary at end of every month.

I spend my money on our child’s feeding and school fees, but he prefers to carry plate to Mama Put shop than to give me money for cooking. ”Any misunderstanding between us, he threaten to kill me”. According to her, the husband dated a neighbour. Lawrence claimed to have met Blessing some years ago and they became husband and wife subsequently.

”After the death of my first wife, I married Blessing because I needed a companion. I care for her, give her money for the children school fees and feeding”, the husband said.

”She uses the money to take soft drink, she takes at six bottles per day. She doesn’t stay at home to take care of the children. ”She wanted to stab me with a knife. I ran to the police station because of her concubines. ”She brought one of her concubines to my house and one of my neighbours caught her and she lied to him that it was her pilot-brother until l heard that the pilot died long time ago”. He urged the court to dissolve the union and grant him custody of the only child. The court president, Mr Emmaunel Shokunle, adjourned the case till May 27 for further hearing.
