She prayed court to dissolve the marriage and grant her custody of her 16-month-old daughter and for an order for the defendant to give her N50,000 monthly as feeding allowance for their child.
In his defence, the defendant said he takes care of his wife and provides her needs within his means .
“I love my wife and have tried all means possible to get her back but to no avail.
