she added, “He even brought a married woman home as a wife and chased me out of our matrimonial home,”
According to the mother of seven, her husband was ‘defaming her character by telling people that she was planning to kill him.
“What do I stand to gain if I kill the father of my seven children; he is lying against me just because he wanted to marry another woman which he had done.
“My husband is uncaring, I shouldered all his responsibilities but he spends money and buys foodstuffs for his concubines,’’ Chinwe told the court.”
She noted further that Ekwe had asked the police to arrest her, alleging that she destroyed his church and stole his five million naira. Mrs Ekwe begged the court not to grant her husband’s wish for the dissolution of their marriage, pointing out that she still loved him despite his adulterous acts.
