April 20, 2016 – Nigerian Man Who Got Paralyzed Due To Constant Beatings By Wife Of 33  Years Finally Secures A Divorce

Unable to withstand further beatings from his wife of 33 years, Emmanuel Osuya , 58, on Wednesday secured a divorce from the battering woman, Abigail.

“My wife wants to kill me, she beats me almost every day with dangerous weapons. On three occasions, she broke my leg, preventing me from going out for days.

“Due to her frequent beating, I got paralysed in 2012 and that made the beating unabated,’’ the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quotes Osuya as pleading.

An Igando Customary Court in Lagos dissolved the marriage, as its President, Mr Adegboyega Omilola said he was convinced that the couple could no longer live together as the petitioner insisted on divorce after several interventions.

“The court has no choice than to dissolve the union in spite of the fact that the wife still claims she loves her husband.

“The couple can no longer stay together because the marriage has broken down totally: both parties are no longer husband and wife, they are free to go their separate ways,” Omilola ruled.
Osuya, a retired civil servant, had approached the court to dissolve his 33-year-old marriage over alleged battering by his wife.

Osuya said that Abigail, with whom he had five children, was always threatening his life through battering, and that he was afraid she might kill him one day.
Osuya also accused his wife of turning his children against him, thereby making them to hate him.

“Abigail succeeded in creating enmity between me and my children, she tells them false and damaging stories about me in order for them to hate me.
“So, my children only care for her by sending her money and other items every month, without extending their love to me. They always ignore me as if I do not exist,’’ the battered husband said.

The petitioner also described his wife as a thief that was always stealing his money, rendering him financially broke.

He said it became so bad that he could no more keep money at home because of his wife’s penchant for stealing.

“She is not always satisfied with the money I give her, in spite of the fact that my children always send her money every month,’’ the petitioner said.
Osuya added that Abigail also starved him of food and sex.

He appealed to the court to dissolve the marriage, saying that “I am no longer interested in the marriage, I don’t want to die now, more so that I am out of love’’.

The respondent however said that she had never stolen her husband’s money.
The mother of five added that she used to cook for her husband whenever he gave her money for food.

She begged the court not to grant her husband’s prayer that she was still in love with him.

  1. Nawa to this story sef! My brain is still processing it.

    But on another note, I feel that no court of law has the jurisdiction to disolve a union that it did not in the first place institute. It is just how things have degenerated, or what should any court of law be doing with such a sacred, transcendental institution? May my legs never bring me before any judge or magistrate in this regards! It should be left to religious bodies to handle.

  2. You will find the presence of your husband very useful when he is done and gone.

    If this account is true, then i would have love to know what has always been the beef that brings about the beatings.

    Then I would also blame the man for wasting so much time before taking a decision that would have prevented him from being paralized.

    Why waste time in a marriage lacks love and care? A union that almost take you to the grave in broad day light? Were you waiting to become another Lowo or what?

    I take a stroll…

  4. If you truly love your husband, you will not only cook for him whenever he gives money, you will always serve him food because you work/trade too. You are his helper. You will not also be staving him of sex and feed him with constant beating. Well I hope you are happy now, husband beater.

  10. Oh! Really? @ Happy.
    So you are seeking for a wife? Ok, here is a friendly Advice from Me to you…

    Go to Itaja Umuelile community in Olokoro area of Umuahia, in Abia State. You are bound to find a worthy wife there.

    But for your info, bride price is N200k clean cash!
    Thats not all, after that you will have to contend with an “Item Lists“ that you may end up spending another close to a Million Naira to buy.

    I am giving you this good Advice bcos from your name, I just like you and I always want you to be H-A-P-P-Y!!!

  11. Battered for 33years and still enduring? There is something fishy he is not telling. I read somewhere that some couples have strange secret love habits of which beatings are found erotic. Just wondering whether this is such instance hence the long period of endurance and the continued profession of love from the wife.

    Well, thank God for courts that this man can finally escape from his ordeal. I wish him a gentle partner next time if he can summon courage to ever enter another relationship.

  12. A man is never lucky unless he get married..
    Dis implies dat d longlive of any one is who dat have a happy home.
    D man did d right thing instead of d time it might be too late, any decision can be made wen it comes to a threat to life.

  13. 4RM all indication d woman is evil and heartless..
    imagine even telling d court dat she cooks 4 him wenever he brings money 4 food.
    wot a nonsense
