A trader has told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos that her husband impregnated her younger sister on two occasions.

Mrs. Saidat Abu, 55, spoke in response to a suit filed by her husband, Momodu, alleging threats to his life and seeking a divorce.

“My husband had an affair with my sister, he impregnated her and aborted the pregnancy on two occasions. I decided not to fight him in order to save my marriage.”

Describing her husband as wicked, the  mother of two said, “My husband took me to a hospital and connived with the doctor to remove my womb.

“Who will marry me now after my husband has removed my womb? Please do not grant his request,” she said.

Momodu, a 60-year-old businessman, had approached the court to end his 33-year-old marriage over his wife’s alleged fetish act.

The petitioner urged the court to terminate the marriage, saying he was fed up.

The court’s President, Adegboyega Omilola, after listening to the couple, adjourned the case till February 7, 2017.
