A frustrated husband, Idongesit Etuk, on Tuesday sought the dissolution of his 12-year-old marriage at a Customary Court in Agege, Lagos State.
Etuk accused his wife, Blessing, of being demonic.
According to him, his 40-year-old wife prefers him to ‘give her a head’ only when she is on her menstruation.
Speaking before the president of the court, Mr. Phillips Williams, Etuk said, “My wife is demonic. For several years, she will insist that we have sex when she is having her monthly flow.
“I didn’t have issues with that at first because she is my wife and I vowed to love her but things got out of hand when she will always insist that I give her a blow job.
“Initially, I did not take her serious but she threatened to divorce me and take out two children along with her, if I don’t give her what she asks for.
“Please, I am tired of the union. If she is not in a secret cult, how can I suck her blood when I did not have any spiritual covenant with her?
“My wife is also abusive and arrogant. She lacks respect for my family,” the complainant added.
The respondent, on her part, however, told the court to please ignore her husband’s plea.
She said, “I still love my husband and I cannot bear to leave without him.
“My children cannot leave without a father at such tender age.”
Blessing denied the allegation that she forces her husband to suck her menstrual blood.
According to her, “I do not force him. I asked him only once and when he disagreed, I did not bother him again.”
In his ruling, the president of the court held that the marriage could no longer stand as the complainant’s life is threatened.
Williams dissolved the marriage and asked the couple to go their separate ways.
“The respondent will have custody of the children and all expenses will be paid by the complainant who will have free access to the children,” the court president ruled.
