Woman offers to repay dowry to end her war-torn marriage.
Mrs Victoria Ayegba who is a civil servant has offered to
refund the dowry paid on her, in order to end a terrifying 7-year-old marriage
which could be a death trap for her.

On Monday, March 6, 2017, Victoria, 37 pleaded with the
Upper Area court to grant her this wish.
She said: I am ready to refund the dowry. I will deposit it
with the court registry so that he can go there and collect it.
The 37-year-old mother of seven also pleaded with the court
to grant her custody of all her children produced by her unhappy marriage with
Ezekiel Ayegba, her husband.
She said that the couple had not been living together for the
past two years because of their never-ending quarrels.

For the past seven
years of our marriage, there has been no peace and harmony between us. Two
years ago we separated.

Ezekiel who calls
himself a pastor has over the years made life unbearable and miserable for me.

I have never been
happy since we got married. He always finds fault in everything I do.

To him, I have never
done anything good.  All I get from him
is emotional pain. He has worsened it by disappearing to an unknown place with
our children.

The worst is that he
has deprived me of seeing and having access to my children.

I do not even know
where he has taken them to, because they are no longer with him, she stated.
The civil servant
pleaded with court to compel Ezekiel to return the children to her.

I cannot live without
them,
she sobbed.

The Presiding Judge, Mr Ibrahim Shekarau, deferred the case
till March 16, 2017 for hearing due to Ezekiels failure to appear in court, despite
all sorts of sermons served on him.
