A civil servant, Mrs Esther Anaagu, on Friday, dragged her husband, Emmanuel, before a Jikwoyi Customary Court, Abuja, for alleged attempt to kill her by poisoning.
The petitioner, a resident of Ajata, said this in the divorce petition filed against her husband before the court.
“I can’t continue to live under the same roof with this man, he wants to kill me. One day, as I entered the room, I saw him with my drinking water.
“He was shaking it as if mixing something. But it didn’t occur to me that he was trying to poison me, until one day I caught him adding a white substance into my water.
“When I confronted him, he said it’s nothing. I suspected that my husband is trying to kill me slowly. It is on this ground that I want to get a divorce,” she said.
The petitioner also told the court that her husband has no tangible means of livelihood.
“I am the one who cater for the family needs, even the car he is using for transportation, I bought it for him, so why is he trying to kill me? she asked.
The respondent, Emmanuel, who is a taxi driver, denied the allegations.
The presiding Judge, Labaran Gusau advised the couple to explore all the available means of settlement, for the sake of the children.
He, however, adjourned the case until March 3, to get the probable report on settlement/hearing.
