A 32-year-old woman, Mrs. Jessica Buki, on
Thursday asked an Upper Area Court in
Mararaba, Nasarawa State, to dissolve her
marriage with Mr Francis Justin, on grounds of
sex starvation and abandonment.
Buki, who has been married to Francis for three
years, told the court that her husband has
refused to have sex with her despite her advise.
She said, instead, he has disappeared to an
unknown destination, since October, 2016.
She accused her husband of denying her sex
despite her advances too.
“Instead of granting my request, he will rather
rebuke me,” she said.
She claimed that she was not getting the natural
satisfaction required of a legal marriage, adding
that her husband had continued to avoid her since
she married him.
“He has failed to perform his duties as a man and
has absconded. I was married to Justin since
December 2013, in accordance with the law and
customs of my people.
“I want this court to dissolve this marriage
because he has showed that he does not want to
have anything to do with me.
“I am 32 years old and can no longer wait for him
nor stay without a man, so I demand that I get
separated officially,” she said.
Buki begged the court to grant her request,
saying that she had made efforts to find him and
make things work, to no avail.
The respondent was not in court even though he
was served hearing notice.
The judge, Mr Ibrahim Shekarau, adjourned the
case till Feb. 13, to give the couple more time to
settle out of court.
