“He denied and starved me of my conjugal rights and I cannot continue to live with him,” she said.

• September 16, 2022

A business woman, Monica Gambo, on Friday dragged her husband Yakubu Gambo before a customary court in Nyanya Abuja, for denying her “conjugal rights”.

The petitioner who resides in Nyanya, said this in a divorce petition she filed against her husband before the court.

“My husband has taken to an adulterous life and brings all his lovers to the house to commit adultery with them.

“He denied and starved me of my conjugal rights and I cannot continue to live with him,” she said.

She also told the court that her husband had been threatening to kill her and take over her property.

She, however, begged the court to dissolve her marriage and issue an order to her husband to vacate her property.

The respondent Yakubu Gambo, who is a tailor, was present in court and denied the allegations.

The presiding Judge Shitta Mohammed, however, adjourned the matter until September 20 for hearing.
