A schoolteacher, Mr. Yemi Ogayemi, on Tuesday accused his wife Funmi, before a Customary court in Jikwoyi, Abuja of spitting in his food.
The petitioner, who resides in Jikwoyi, made the allegation in a divorce petition before the court.
“I can’t continue to live with this woman. She wants to kill me.
”She has been exhibiting vile behaviours. Like spitting in my food. I don’t know if it’s normal or has any negative or spiritual implications.
”I don’t want to continue with this union. She also predicted that I will die this year. I don’t know if she has plans to kill me before the end of this year, “ he said.
The petitioner also told the court that his wife said that if he sleeps with her, that he will die.
The respondent, Funmi, who is a full-time house wife, in her defense said:” I did all that my husband said. I have begged him to forgive me and he said he has forgiven me. I wonder why he is saying it here again “.
The presiding judge, Jemilu Jega adjourned the matter until March 9, for judgment. (NAN)
