A 35-year-old businesswoman, Mrs Lami Nuhu has tearfully begged her husband for settlement as he insisted that the court should dissolve their marriage.
Lami Nuhu, the respondent, made the plea at the Grade 1 Area Court, Aso Pada Mararaba, Nasarawa State.
“I am still much interested in this marriage; I do not want a divorce.
“I sincerely apologise to my dear husband, if there are ways I have wronged him, I want the court to help me ask for his forgiveness.
“We have been together for more than seven years and we have two children.
“I have nowhere to go; the court should help resolve our differences please,” she pleaded.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that while sobbing, the mother of two also told the court that she still loved her husband and would subsequently do as he wished in order for peace to reign.
Earlier, the petitioner, Mr Ahmed Nuhu, had told the court that he could no longer stay married to Lami as he could not cope with her questionable character.
“She has no respect for me and my family and she does not take to corrections.
“She insults me, my parents, especially my late mother at will, without thinking of the consequences.
“I cannot live with such a woman again.
“Therefore, I honestly and desperately ask that this humble court dissolve this union, I am tired,” he said.
Nuhu, who described his wife tears as `crocodile tears’, said that she was only pretending before the court.
According to him, she will do worse once she is outside the court.
The judge, Owana Musa, adjourned the case till July 22 for ruling.
