Man accuses wife of terminating pregnancies

By Oluwasegun Adelegan
” My lord, each time my wife got pregnant, she would not tell me until she had miscarriage. These had happened on two occasions.

“The first one was in  2016 and the second was October 2017. And this has made me to  suspect she is the one using drugs to abort the pregnancies.

This was the allegation of a middle-aged trader,  Felix Aiku, against his wife of ten years, before a Grade A Customary Court sitting in Oke-eda, Akure.

The plaintiff, Aiku, had approached the court, seeking for the dissolution of his relationship with his estranged wife, Roseline Aiku, which he said produced one child.

Aiku further alleged his wife of  attending special programmes in her church, without notifying him or informing late  after she had gone to attend the service.

” This has been her attitude these days. Even, she had stopped cooking for me since January this year. And each time she is going out,  she will drop my child with her friend, one Mummy Toni and  switched  off her phone, so that  I would  not be able to know her whereabout.

” I have gotten a message from a prophet that my wife can no longer give birth to a child again.

” I also  discovered there is no more love  between us, which was the reason she could do things without my consent, ” he lamented.

Consequently, he urged the  court to admit his claims and  grant him the custody of his eight-year-old child, Esther Aiku.

“I am a trader. And I have the necessary facilities to take care of my  child. I will put her in a boarding school and take her to my mother during vacations.

However, the respondent, Roseline, who debunked the allegations, said her husband lied to the court, despite being under oath.

She stated that the plaintiff never cared for the child, while she narrated an incident in which her husband refused to sleep on the same bed with the child because she had chicken pox.

Roseline, who went further to tell the court  that her husband had no love for the family at all, claimed she had been the one responsible for her daughter’s school fees, feeding, clothing and medical treatment whenever she fell sick.

The respondent’s lawyer, Messr T. Sunday, tendered the receipts for  the children school fees and medical treatment before the court.

The documents were, accordingly  admitted as evidence and marked as exhibits.

The presiding president, Barrister A. Akinseye, adjourned the case till February 27, 2019, for further hearing.
