A fashion designer identified as Lydia Dallah, on Tuesday told a Jikwoyi Customary Court in Abuja that her husband deceived her into their marriage by concealing that he had a wife and six children.

While asking the court to dissolve their union, Lydia, disclosed that she came to know about her husband, identified as Yakubu Dallah’s previous marriage after she tied the knot with him.

According to her, “He never told me that he had an existing marriage with six children.

“It was after I got married to him that I discovered the whole truth about him; whenever I told him to let me go, he threatened my life,” Lydia submitted.

The dressmaker told the court that her husband beat her with a standing fan for demanding that they end the marriage.

She added, “He even destroyed some valuables in the house; I was rescued by our neighbours who heard me shouting and crying out for help.

“I later sought medical attention in a nearby pharmacy, and reported the incident to the police who then invited him.”

She said she has taken the matter to her family and church to see if she could get help but to no avail.

In her words, “My family and our pastor advised us, pleaded with him and sought to know what he wanted, to grant me divorce.

“He said that he wanted the two children of the marriage.

“I beg this court to dissolve my marriage and grant me the custody of my children.

The respondent, her husband, however, denied the allegations.

The Presiding Judge, Labaran Gusau, fixed November 16 for further hearing.
