A businesswoman, Halima Damina, on Friday dragged her husband Jacob before a Customary Court in Jikwoyi, Abuja, accusing him of throwing her out of their matrimonial home.

She said this in a divorce petition she filed against him in the court.

”Some time ago, I visited my ex-boy friend’s mother and people lied to my husband that it was my ex-boy friend that I visited,” she said.

“When my husband came back home he threw me and my belongings out of the house. I tried to explain things to him but he wouldn’t listen.”

She told the court that their relatives intervened and tried to reconcile them.

“It is on these grounds that I seek for divorce,” she said.

The respondent, who is a welder, was present in the court but denied the allegations.

Trial judge, Thelma Baba, advised the couple to explore reconciliation and adjourned the matter until Jan. 31, for hearing.
