My wife is wasteful, turns me to her cook, man tells court

A civil servant, Mr Echi Ogbonna, on Thursday, dragged his wife, Dima Ogbonna, to a customary court in Jikwoyi, Abuja, for squandering all the money he invested in her provision shop.

The petitioner, who resides in Jikwoyi, said this in the divorce petition he filed against his wife at the court.

He said, “I borrowed money from a bank to open a shop for my wife. She refused to operate the shop, saying that she prefers to learn how to make dresses.

“I tried to make her happy by enrolling her in a dress making institution and brought my mother from the village to take over the provision shop.

“Three months later, she left the sewing institute and came back, chased my mother from the shop and took over the shop.

“Three months after my wife took over the shop, it crumbled. She doesn’t contribute to the upkeep of the house. So I asked her what she used the money for, she refused to tell me.”

The petitioner further told the court that his wife also abandoned her domestic chores to him and his mother.

The respondent, Mrs Dima Ogbonna, denied all the allegations.

The Judge, Labaran Gusau, adjourned the case to June 8. (NAN)
