One Mrs Precious Anthony, has appealed to Jikwoyi Customary Court to dissolve her marriage on the grounds that her husband plans to stab her.

Antony who lives in Karu Village, Abuja testified in the case on Thursday as she told the court that the husband almost stabbed her to death on the claims that he was on the influence of an alcohol. She added that the husband recently threw her and her daughter out of the house.

In her words, “My husband almost stabbed me to death after he has consumed excess alcohol.

“This has been his usual behavior, anytime he comes back drunk, he never lets me be. He sometimes beats me up for doing nothing.”

 “When my husband drove me and my daughter out, I did not know who to run to, so I had to go back to my parents’ house in Jos,” she told the court.

”Even when he managed to come and see us, he came drunk.

“He even beat me up in my parents’ house and threatened to kill my brother who came to defend me while he was beating me up,” she said.

Mrs Anthony prayed the court to dissolve the marriage and grant her custody of the only child of the marriage.

Monday Mipan, the respondent who is a security man and was present in court, denied the allegations. While the husband agreed to her plea on the grounds that the child will not be kept under her custody.

The presiding judge, Labaran Gusau, advised them to give room for reconciliation but they refused, saying ” there is no more love in the marriage.”
