There was drama at the Agege Customary Court when Rachel Raheem, a 28-year-old woman accused her husband, Aliu Raheem, of always beating her and fond of stripping her naked in public.
Rachel, who resides at 84, Egbabo Street, Agege, said her husband cheats on her with other women and beats her up whenever she dares to complain about his action.
She said her husband sometimes bring strange women to their home for sex even in her presence.
Rachel, who claimed to have lived with Aliu for 11 years claimed he is fond of giving only N500 for her feeding allowance and increasing it by N200 whenever he is expecting sex from her.
Rachel, who is seeking a divorce, said she was surprised when “he got married to another lady secretly, and the lady delivered a baby shortly after I gave birth to my second child.”
According to the Vanguard Newspapers, she also alleged that her husband chased her away from their home when she travelled to Abeokuta, Ogun State to report Aliu’s actions to her mother-in-law with the hope of finding lasting solutions to their marital problems.
In his defense, Aliu Raheem said Rachel lacked care for him and the children. He informed the court that she is fond of coming back very late from the market which makes it difficult for him and the children to eat on time.
He denied ever beating his wife but admitted to slapping her once when he could not bear her constant bickering.
The court president, Mr. Emmanuel Shokunle, adjourned the case till August 7 for further hearing.
