Spread The News
A 32-year-old woman, Kate Ude, wants a Federal Capital Territory High Court, Jabi to dissolve her four- year-old marriage to her husband, Michael Ude, over inability of the man to perform his sexual obligation.
It was gathered that the man has been having sexual malfunctioning.
The petitioner prayed the court presided over by Justice Vera Venda, to declare that there was no marriage in the first place between them.
Kate alleged that Michael’s penis was always having inconsistent erection and anytime it does becomes erect, she alleges that the husband ejaculates within few seconds making her not to enjoy sex.
Beside, she is seeking for divorce on the ground that the husband hid his health status before the marriage which was said to have taken place in Calabar, Cross River, in 2014.
The petitioner also said that during her traditional marriage, Michael did not show up as he was represented by his younger brother.
Kate also said that it was at the registry that she got to know him very well and prayed the court to nullify the marriage.
In his response, Michael who also filed a cross petition to divorce the woman, denied all the allegations, when cross examined by the petitioner’s lawyer, Mr Ishaka Awaliene.
“The non-erection of my manhood is not regular, it is just that l am not always in the mood whenever she is in the mood. I don’t use any enhancement drugs for sex as she alleged,’” he said.
Ude also told the court that there was a period in June 28, 2014, when Kate left his house that she was no longer interested in the marriage.
According to Michael, she later came back after some months and decided to leave again.
He further explained that his family has tried its best to settle and reunite them, but instead she started throwing tantrums through text messages.
Justice Venda adjourned the matter until 6th February, 2018 for adoption of final written addresses from both parties.
