Listing several reasons why he approached the court, Mr Frank said, “My wife denies me my matrimonial rights. She also threatened to kill me so that she could inherit my property.

“My wife collected N420,000 from my tenant without my consent and never gave an account of the money. She is also a drunk and fetish.”

Responding to the accusations, the wife, Ibeawuchi, asked the court not to grant her husband’s wish for divorce, stating that she still loved him.

According to her, the rent money of N420,000 from the tenant was used to renovate the family’s house. Accusing her husband of being fetish, Ibeawuchi said, “He brings different prophets to the house and also buries all sorts of things on the ground.”
