A businessman, Victor Ora, on Monday dragged his wife, Comfort, before the Jikwoyi Customary Court, Abuja, for an alleged secret marriage.

Mr Ora, in his divorce petition, said, ” my wife moved out of our house without informing me. When I found her, she confessed that she had got married to another man.

“It is on this grounds that I seek to dissolve the marriage between us,” he said.

He told the court that his sister-in-law was denying him access to his son.

“I was informed that my son was with my sister-in-law, so I went to see him, but my sister-in-law refused to allow me to see him.

”She has vowed that I will only see when she is dead. I beg this honourable court to dissolve the marriage and grant me custody of my son,” he pleaded.

The presiding judge, Labaran Gusau, adjourned the matter until November 30 for further hearing.
