Ike Ifeanyi on Friday told a Makurdi Upper Area Court in Benue that his wife, Lovina, had him arrested for stealing her underwear.
In his divorce petition, Mr Ifeanyi said that he was ill-tempered.
”I married Lovina in 2019 under the Traditional Native Laws and Customs of the Igbo people of Imo.
”I paid N95, 000 bride price and another N300, 000 to my mother-in-law to prepare for the traditional marriage that took place on Dec. 14, 2019.
”I included my father-in-law in the matter because I want him to refund the N95, 000 bride price.
”I am no longer interested in the marriage. The last straw for me that finally shattered my marital union with my wife is when I discovered that she secretly terminated a pregnancy,” he alleged.
The Judge, Dooshima Ikpambese, adjourned the case until Dec. 6 for Lovina to open her defence.
