My husband hits me with hammer – Divorce seeking woman tells court

A divorce-seeking businesswoman, Mrs Nancy Ngi, prayed a Customary Court in Nyanya, Abuja, on Monday, to dissolve her marriage to her husband, Ozor, over alleged domestic violence.

The woman made the allegation in a divorce petition she filed against her estranged husband before the court.

“My husband is a violent man. He is short tempered and he throws dangerous things at me.

”He uses a hammer on me. I have been going through martial torture. It is even severe now than when we were newly married.

“Now he beats me in front of our children with whatever he can lay his hands on.

“I pray the court to dissolve our marriage,” she said.

She also told the court that her husband locks the storage room where foodstuffs are kept.

The petitioner added that her husband was doubting the paternity of their son.

Responding, Ozor, denied all the allegations.

The presiding judge, Doocivir Yawe, adjourned the matter until Feb. 20, for hearing.
