“My wife pushed me into adultery,’’ Mr Bello Abudu, a 42-year-old technician, told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos on Thursday.
Abudu, whose wife, Blessing, sought the dissolution of their marriage, accusing him of infidelity, told the court while responding to the allegation that his wife pushed him into adultery
“My wife always tells me that I cannot impregnate another woman and that if I try to make love with another woman, my male organ will get stuck inside that woman, that she had done something concerning my male organ.
“I was afraid initially, but later I decided to try it to know if she is saying the truth.
“But luckily, the girl I met got pregnant and had a baby, when my wife got to know, she told me that the baby was not mine.
“After some months, I decided to do it again to prove her wrong, and the girl took in again.
“Since then, Blessing made the house unbearable for me by fighting me regularly. She caused the Police to arrest me and when I could no longer bear it, I packed out of the house,’’ he told the court.
The respondent said that his wife starves him of sex, claiming that sex gives her headache.
He urged the court not to grant his wife’s wish by dissolving their marriage, saying that he still loves her.
Mrs Blessing Abudu had approached the court to dissolve her 12-year-old marriage over her husband’s alleged infidelity.
“My husband is cheating on me, he got a girl pregnant on two occasions.
“I have gone to several hospitals and herbal homes, just to have another baby but my husband is busy making babies with another girl,’’ she lamented.
The 36-year-old tailor accused her husband of denying her the pleasure of having sex with him.
“My husband refused to sleep with me, despite the fact that I desire another baby.
“He told me to look for another man to sleep with me and vowed that he will not sleep with me again,’’ she alleged.
Blessing accused her husband of posing serious threats to her life.
“Bello told me that I am eating poison in his house, that I should pack out, else he will kill me or cause me to run mad,’’ she told the court.
The petitioner said that her husband had abandoned her with the only child of the marriage.
The mother of one begged the court to terminate the marriage, adding that she had long lost interest in it.
The president of the court, Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, urged the two parties to maintain peace and adjourned the case until July 25, for judgment.
