A 55-year-old trader, Mrs. Saidat Abu, on Thursday told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos that her husband connived with a doctor to remove her womb.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria Saidat stated this while responding to a suit filed by her husband, Momodu, alleging threats to his life and seeking a divorce.
She added that Momodu impregnated her younger sister on two occasions.
Saidat said, “My husband had an affair with my sister, he impregnated her and aborted the pregnancy on two occasions. I decided not to fight him in order to save my marriage.
“My husband took me to a hospital and connived with the doctor to remove my womb.
“Who will marry me now after my husband has removed my womb? Please do not grant his request,” she said.
Momodu, a 60-year-old businessman, had approached the court to terminate his 33-year-old marriage over his wife’s alleged fetish act, as he was fed up.
The court’s President, Mr. Adegboyega Omilola, adjourned the case till February 7, 2017 after listening to the couple.
