Published

Ms Adoba Odeligbo, a Police Inspector, has told a Makurdi Upper Area Court that she is prepared to pay 1,000 times fold of my N5 bride price

Odeligbo, during her testimony in chief on Tuesday, told the court that the marriage between her and Insp Simone Gabriel had broken down irretrievably.

She explained that she was married in 2005 under the Idoma Native Laws and she has two children.

The petitioner said on March 8, 2014, Gabriel sent her out of their home because she requested to attend a marriage ceremony.

“I want the court to dissolve this marriage so that I can have my freedom, because of our tradition I can’t do anything now that we are still legally married, even though we are separated.

“He paid N5 as bride price. I am ready to give him N5, 000.

”All efforts to reconcile us failed. My offense is that I asked for permission to attend a marriage ceremony.

”He became aggressive and said I was not his wife so I should not tell him about my movement.

“We did everything, but he refused. I pleaded with him, but he refused. Even the apartment he is staying in Lafia was the one given to me by the Police,” she said.

She prayed to the court to order her husband to cater for his kids and also pay their school fees and other things.

After listening to the petitioner, the President of the Court, Rose Ioryshe adjourned the case until Sept. 10 for defense.
