A mother of seven in Lagos State has warned her husband not to come for her burial ceremony when she is dead.
Naija News understands one Mr Tobechukwu had filed a suit against his wife at an Igando Customary Court, praying the court separates their marriage of many years.
At the court sitting on Wednesday, Tobechukwu, accused his wife of infidelity. He alleged she had abandoned him and their children and moved to an unknown location for 10 years.
However, in her submission while responding to the suit by her husband, Mrs Chima Udemi, told the court that her husband was an unrepentant adulterer who has slept with her friends and her sister.
The 57-year-old lambasted her husband, calling him unprintable names. The trader woman said her husband should be ready to move out of the house she built if he insists on divorcing her.
She said: “Tobechukwu is a serial womaniser, he sleeps with my younger sister and my friends.
“He once abandoned me and our seven children and relocated to his mistress’ house.
”He is an irresponsible husband and father. I struggled, doing unpleasant jobs to feed my children.
“He lives with me in the house I single-handedly built, eats my food, drinks my water and still frustrates my life.
“If my husband insists on divorcing me, he should be ready to move out of my house,” she said.
Not pained with her husband’s case suit, Udemi urged the court to grant her husband’s request for the dissolution of their marriage.
“When I die, he should not come for my burial. And I can assure you that when he dies, I will never attend his burial,” she said.
Naija News understands Tobechukwu and Udemi had been married for 33 years and their union is at the verge of sinking.
In his testimony, Tobechukwu said: “My wife is having an affair with a man from her village. She also abandoned me and the children for 10 years.
“She deserted her matrimonial home to unknown destination for 10 years, she just returned in 2020,” he said.
In his ruling after listening to both parties, the President of the Court, Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, adjourned the case until Sept.21 for further hearing.
He, however, directed the estranged couple to maintain peace.
