A wife ends her marriage after she discovered that her husband of over nine-years has kept four children from four different women from her, while also lying to her about his Genotype. The wife identified as Chukwu Oge told one Chief Usman Ibrahim, the President of Pyakasa Customary Court in Lugbe, on Wednesday to dissolve her marriage to one Obinna Akuobi over deceit and lies.
The wife ends her marriage, by urging the President of the Customary Court in Lugbe, Ibrahim that she was lied to for 9-years by her husband. She was granted her wish, as the Court held that they had no other option than to dissolve the union since parties have resolved to dissolve the marriage and urged the court to adopt terms of the settlement.
He said that Chukwu Oge, is granted custody of the seven-year-old child of the marriage but at 16 years Akuobi takes over custody as agreed by parties.
Ibrahim said that Akuobi is expected to pay N15, 000 monthly to the mother for the upkeep of child and pay his school fees.
He also ordered Chukwu Oge to return N5,000 bride price paid by Akuobi’s family back to him as agreed.
He also instructed her to ensure that the respondent is allowed to visited his son but also informed parties that consent judgment, has no room for appeal except where fraud is detected.
Earlier in her petition Chukwu Oge, an indigene of Enugu State had approached the court seeking the dissolution of her marriage to Akuobi.
The petitioner said that the marriage is built on deception because Akuobi never told her he had four children from four different women before their marriage.
She also told the court that he never told her his Genotype is AS, knowing full well that her’s was AS.
Oge said that her marriage to Akuobi became a nightmare and she is not willing to continue with it.
