‘My Husband Impregnated His ‘Sister’ In Our Matrimonial Home’
A housewife, Mrs. Francisca Obeji, told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos Thursday that her husband, Ezekiel Obeji, impregnated his ‘sister’ in their matrimonial home.
The 31-year-old businesswoman, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), told the court that her husband of seven years impregnated the woman he introduced to her as his ‘sister’.
She said: “My husband, who married me as a virgin, stopped making love to me three months after our wedding. “Four months into our wedding, he brought a young woman home and introduced her to me as his ‘sister’.
He told me that she would be living with us and I accepted, because I did not know all his siblings. “After some months, his ‘sister’ got pregnant and my husband ran away with her to an unknown destination and sublet our apartment to another tenant without my knowledge. “I had to vacate the apartment that day as the new tenant moved in immediately my husband absconded.
“When I heard that my husband did the traditional wedding with his so-called ‘sister,’ I travelled to his hometown to confirm from his parents. “His parents told me they could only accept a fertile woman as their wife, while they advised me to go and look for another man to marry.
“I do not know where to trace my husband as he had relocated elsewhere from the shop I established for him and had also changed his cell phone numbers.” President of the court, Mr. Adegboyega Omilola, ordered the petitioner to submit an affidavit of service that would enable the court to continue with the matter despite the respondent’s absence.
