I sponsored our wedding, even lent him money to pay my bride | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

A civil servant, Faith Ogu, on Tuesday, dragged her unemployed husband, Joseph Ogu, to a Jikwoyi Customary Court in Abuja, seeking for divorce on the grounds that he deceived her about his ’employment’ status.

Faith told the court that her jobless husband had deceived her into believing he had a source of livelihood before their marriage, adding that she only got to knew about his status as a ‘jobless’ person after they had tied the knot.

“He never told me that he had no job, instead he kept telling me that he works with the Zenith Bank and that he has a business in Lagos, that yields him millions.

“It was after I got married to him that I discovered the whole truth about him,” Faith said.

She told the court that Joseph had also told her that he had built a house somewhere in Lugbe, but that after investigating, she realised that it was false. Faith said all her efforts to encourage him find a job did not elicit any positive response, as such she wanted the marriage dissolved.

“He is lazy and does not want to do anything for a living; I have been lending him money, hoping that he would pay back.

“I sponsored our wedding, I even lent him money to pay my bride price,” she said. The petitioner said that she had reported the matter to her elder sister to see if she could advise him but to no avail.

“I beg this court to dissolve my marriage so that I can be free; I am tired of feed, clothing and paying medical bills for my husband ,” she pleaded.

The Presiding Judge, Mr Everyman Eleanya, however reiterated that the respondent had not been in court since the beginning of the case and therefore ordered that a Hearing Notice be pasted in his sister’s house.
He adjourned the case to Feb. 9, for continuation of hearing.

  1. Then blind you before. All the signs were there you just failed to see it because you were in some ferry tail world. How can you loan a man money to pay your bride price. I laugh in Swahili and add a little torch or bambara

    1. Can this lady hear herself. She was despirate to get married, hence she became blinded to the realities on ground.

  2. Nonsence. He told you he works in Zenith Bank, He also told you he had a business that yields him millions. He also told you he has a house in Lugbe. Before nko? If he had told you that he doesn't have such, would you have accepted him? Answer me. The man use you do MMM. Period. Better stay with him because its not any easy out there.

  4. how can someone told U he owns a huz, worked at zenith bank etc and U stilled gave him money for ur bride price. How manage? Were U under a spell. Love is blind but marriage restores its sight. Hve faith faith. I LOVE U.

  5. Girls in most cases needs lies, she deserves what she got....find out very well u will see that a hustling guy somewhere must have been wooing her but instead she choose to follow the wild road that leads to destruction....better stay put in that marriage that's my candid advise to you Faith okay...u don buy market!!!!!

  6. Sometimes, love could be said to be blind, very unfortunate for Faith. If she has agreed to forgo her losses encountered from this marriage, well, the early Faith quit the marriage the better before things get out of control, since they've not been blessed with children. To the lazy guy! No free food in Freetown not to talk of Nigeria.
