In what’s coming as really shocking development, a divorce-seeking woman, Taibat Abubakar, has accused her husband, Abubakar Salihu, of getting her pr£gnant without having s£xual intercourse.
Taibat told a magistrates’ court in Kwara State that she cannot explain how she became pr€gnant without having had penetrative vaginal s£x with her husband.
She told the court that her husband, Salihu, had asked her to marry him, but she refused because she did not have any affection for him.
“He said I should marry him, but I said no because I don’t love him. But he insisted and said whether I liked it or not, I didn’t have a choice over his proposal,” Taibat told the court.
Taibat added that even after regretting his proposal, Salibu insisted, saying that whether she liked it or not, she had no choice but to accept it.
According to her, Salibu then called her one day to tell her she was pregnant for him and that she must not abort it.
“Though surprised, I didn’t take it seriously until I didn’t see my period at the end of the month without having s€x with him,” she added.
Taibat, prayed to the court to dissolve the marriage, demanded ₦10,000 monthly for the feeding of the child, and also urged the court to order the estranged husband to pay the child’s school fees.
Meanwhile, Salihu denied Taibat’s submissions, claiming that she initially refused his advances but that they later got along.
Salihu told the court that he had “consciously” had physical s£x with his wife, not in a dream or in the spiritual realm, as Taibat has claimed.
The Magistrate, Ajibade Lawal, told the couple to maintain their status quo until the next adjourned date of Tuesday, July 25.
