A man Sule Haliu has prayed a Customary Court in Nyanya, Abuja to dissolve his marriage to his  wife Ada because her infidelity was affecting the children psychologically.

Mr Haliru, a public servant, told the court on Thursday that his wife has been having extramarital affairs for about one year now. 

“She changed overnight,” he said.

In his divorce petition, Mr Haliru stated that: “She has been chatting on her phone, making and receiving calls from random men. She has abandoned her marital responsibilities as a wife.”

He also prayed the court to dissolve his marriage and grant him custody of the children of the marriage.

The respondent Ada, who is a civil servant was present in court and denied the allegations.

The Presiding Judge, Doocivir Yawe  adjourned the matter until October 13 for hearing.
