"My husband has failed in his matrimonial obligations as a husband and father, his adulterous life has jeopardised my love for him"

Peace Johnson has been married to her husband since 2012 and the union produced a child.

They were living happily until the husband, Praise turned from a loving and caring man to a bully.

Peace said, “At every slight provocation, he beats me with whatever he lays his hands on, even in the presence of our three-year-old child.

“Most times it takes the intervention of neighbours to save the situation.

“He could not provide me and our child with basic needs; rather I have been the one providing for the home financially.

“Ever since we got married, flirting around with different women has been his major hobby.

“The worst aspect of it was when I was pregnant in 2013; the respondent abandoned me and started cohabiting with another lady by name, Christy.

“Till this moment as I am speaking, the respondent has abandoned me and the only child of the marriage,” she testified.

Peace said she could no longer continue with the marriage.

Mararaba Upper Area Court in Nasarawa, on Tuesday, dissolved the five-year marriage for infidelity and constant battery.

The judge, Ibrahim Shakarau, dissolved the marriage as all efforts to reconcile the parties failed.
