My wife Beat me up Because I Confronted her for Giving her Car to her Pastor – Divorce Seeker tells Court



Federal High CourtA 46-year-old man, Ogah A., has told a Mararaba Upper Area Court that his wife, Helen, beats him because he is physically challenged.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that he urged the court to dissolve his 13-year-old marriage which was blessed with four children,

He said: “My wife beats and disrespects me because I am deformed in my hand”.

The petitioner said he once bought a car for his wife but she gave the car to her pastor without his knowledge or consent.

“I came back from work one day and she told me that the pastor had an accident with the car and when I confronted her that I did not give the car to the pastor, she slapped me. I received the beating of my life from her to the extent that she grabbed my private parts and tried to kill me,” Ogah added.

He also told the court that it had been over a year since he had sex with his wife because of the injury he sustained when she grabbed his private parts.

Helen, however, was not in court in spite of the court’s summons on her.

The presiding judge, Ibrahim Shekaru, adjourned the case to September 2, 2016.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

      I frown on a woman who beats her husband. Physical abuse is not okay whether the perpetrator is a man or woman and I am sure there are many women who think so. I hope you are satisfied.

    So stupid. How can you beat your husband? I’m proud of this man for filing for divorce. Men, do away with societal norms and stop forming strong: if a woman causes bodily harm to you, she can kill you. LEAVE!! Women, if a man causes bodily harm to you, he can kill you. LEAVE. The women are receiving sense and not tolerating abuse nowadays. It’s good. Its the men who need to receive sense and dump abusive spouses.
    Violence is never the answer. Whether you are a man or a woman, transgender or hermaphrodite, if someone who claims to love you puts their hands on you, RECEIVE SENSE AND LEAVE!

    Women beating men, men beating women, women inflicting injury on step kids and domestic help, men chaining and starving their kids! I am tired of all these domestic violence stories. Like, can’t people just keep their hands to themselves?

    Tah! When did we start this culture of domestic violence all around or is it that cases were largely unreported?
