Husband wants wife to refund N1.4m marriage expenses

A middle-aged-man, Collins Nduka, on Thursday pleaded with an Ojo Customary Court in Lagos State to order his wife, Sefinat Nduka, to refund N1.4 million he spent in marrying her.

Collins told the court that his wife, whom he married three years ago, had decided to abandon her matrimonial home for more than a year.

“I would want a refund of the amount that I spent as marriage and dowry expenses because she has become unfaithful.

“My wife is not faithful to the marriage because she has other relationships apart from me and I no more love her. After all, she has not given birth to any child for me.

“The most painful thing is that she has parked all my belongings in my house to an unknown place in addition to her emptying my shop which I stocked with over N750,000,” he said.

He pleaded with the court to dissolve the marriage and order Sefinat to return his belongings which she allegedly parked away and money to him so that he could continue with his life.

Sefinat, who was absent in court, had earlier told the court that she did not cart away her husband’s property as he had alleged.

She, however, said that she was ready for the divorce.

The President, Chief Joseph Ogunmola, while advising the husband on the dangers of divorce, instructed that the respondent be invited to the court.

“The court does not dissolve any marriage except in extreme cases, we need the consent of both parties before judgment so she must be invited, “he said.

  1. Both the man and the woman should go for deliverance in the church. meet a deliverance pastor to deliver them from the hand of the evil one. instead of going to court. They should seek the face of God in the marriage instead of seeking man's face. the evil one want them to divorce they are actually dancing towards that direction. this is the devil at work, they should not give the devil the chance to operate. Spending all the money on earth for one marriage is not the issue, for the marriage to succeed is the issue. After marriage do they go for deliverance, if no that is where their is coming from. Spiritual problem is the course of their problem. Is not the work of a lawyer met any of God's prophet to deliver them. Divorcing is not the answer my brother.
