The once blissful and rosy union between Mr. Emmanuel Agbola and Mrs. Funke Agbola has drastically snowballed into a nightmare for the two estranged love-birds, with funke regretting the day she met her hubby
Emmanuel, has stormed a grade A customary court at Igando Area of Lagos State, praying the court to dissolve his 9-year-old marriage on the grounds of frequent fighting, lack of care for his kids and threat to his life. More still, the feelings of love and affection he once had for her had gone sour.
Emmanuel who ply’s his trade in Lagos as a sachet water producer, popularly known as pure water revealed that his wife has being threatening his life.
“For 9 years now I have being living with my wife. But lately, she started acting strangely, but then I had thought that she would change but all to no avail.
She doesn`t care about the welfare of my kids and each time I complain about this she will always have one thing or another to say as a defense. When the matter became serious and unbearable for me, I had to endure the reproach of reporting her to her family members, even at a point her pastor intervened yet there was no change of attitude.
Painfully enough, nothing that was done, that was potent and convincing enough to make her budge. It has been woes all the while between us. I don`t love her anymore and there is no affection between us again”.
However, while struggling to defend herself from all the accusations brought against her by her husband, Funke denied threatening his life, acting irresponsibly towards the welfare of their kids.”As a mother I have always being alive to my avowed responsibilities towards my family”.
Giving her evidence while staring straight to the eyes of the president of the court, she audaciously admitted engaging her husband in fight whenever there is disagreement in the family, she avouched.
Continuing in her evidence, she stunned the court by asserting that for some time now she had being refusing her husband sex, owing to the surgery she had. And that her husband has not being considerate: :Each time I say no to his sexual overtures; he bounces on me and makes love to me through my anus.”My husband makes love to me through my anus whenever I refused him sex because of my condition. Some couple of months back I had surgery and as it is now, I am not yet strong”, she concluded.
Upon hearing the complaints of both parties, the court president counseled the couple to give peace a chance in their union and have understanding between each other, and the case was subsequently adjourned to a later date.
