A businesswoman Mrs Nancy Ngi on Monday told a Customary Court in Nyanya, Abuja that her husband, Ozor was violent and hits her with a hammer.
The petitioner made the allegation in a divorce petition she filed against her estranged husband before the court.
“My husband is a violent man. He is short-tempered and he throws dangerous things at me.
”He uses a hammer on me. I have been going through martial torture. It is even more severe now than when we were newly married.
“Now he beats me in the front of our children with whatever he can lay his hands on.
”I pray the court to dissolve our marriage,” she said.
She also told the court that her husband locks the storage room where foodstuffs are kept.
The petitioner also told the court that her husband was doubting the paternity of their son.
Responding, Ozor, denied the allegation.
The presiding judge, Doocivir Yawe, adjourned the matter until Feb. 20, for hearing.
