A 44-year-old businessman, Ekpolador Ebi, told
an FCT High Court, Kubwa, that he would no
longer tolerate his wife’s masturbation.
Ebi made this known when he testified in his
divorce petition against his wife, Gloria Onajero,
in Abuja on Wednesday.
He urged the court to end the marriage, which
had produced two children because of his wife’s
unfaithful and intolerable character.
The petitioner questioned the paternity of his
children, when he found out his wife’s extra-
marital affair with one Richard.
He also noted that his wife’s “ugly character” has
had a negative impact on their children. “She
masturbates on a regular basis. I have warned
her severally but she wouldn’t stop. Now it has
affected my first daughter.
“I caught her on three occasions; I spoke to the
mother about it and she promised that it would be
resolved but it did not.
“Now, I noticed since we separated, that the
children have developed confidence issues in
“My first daughter has also developed anger
issues; she slams the door at you when you try
to scold her. All these never used to be,” he
Ebi also told the court that he ran away from his
home because his wife and her mother frustrated
all his good intentions.
According to him, his wife also beats the children
with so much force and without mercy and when
he tried to caution her, her mother supports her.
The petitioner urged the court to, aside dissolving
the marriage; help him recover his property from
“My wife came into this marriage with nothing,
but when she left, she went away with everything
“She took all the original documents of my
property, including our marriage certificate.
“I want everything back, including my first
daughters’ international passport which has a
five-year-visa on it.
“I also want this court to order her to stop calling
me at odd hours. She calls me around 1 a.m, 2
a.m or 3 a.m for no good reason,” he said.
Mr Festus Ukpe, Counsel to the respondent,
applied to the court to grant them two dates of
adjournment to enable him and his client prepare
The presiding judge, Justice Bello Kawu,
adjourned the matter till March 21 and March 30.
