A businessman, Chukwu Emmanuel, has dragged his wife, Joyce, before a Customary Court in Jikwoyi, Abuja for alleged secret marriage.
Chukwu, the petitioner, in his divorce petition on Friday, said: “My wife moved out of our house without informing me.
“I later found her new location.
“When I got there I realised that she had married another man and had a baby for him.
“It is on this grounds that I seek to dissolve the marriage between us.”
Chukwu told the court that his wife left him and their three children in 2020.
He added: “I have been taking care of the kids.
“I don’t want anyone to poison their minds against me, I beg this court to stop my wife from coming to my house to see my children in my absence.
“I beg this honourable court to dissolve the marriage and grant me custody of my three sons.”
The presiding judge, Labaran Gusau, adjourned the matter until February 9 for further hearing.
