My Husband Drugged, Had Marathon Sex With Me After Childbirth, Woman Tells Court

Mrs Glory Ojuala has told the Ejigbo Customary Court in Lagos State  how her husband drugged her just after she  put to bed  so that  he could have continuous sexual  intercourse with her.

Asking the court to dissolve their 15-year-old marriage,  30-year-old Glory  alleged that she did not know that her husband had an ulterior motive when he  offered her a bottle of  soft drink which she took on the day she
was drugged.

A mother of three, Glory claimed that two days  after  she was delivered of a baby,  her husband started pestering her for sex in the presence of her mother, who was on a visit. She told the court that she denied her husband sex because she was still recovering from the pains of childbirth and was  also breast feeding.

She reiterated that after she took the soft drink, she couldn’t  explain what happened afterwards until she  became conscious  three days later in the hospital. She added that she later knew that her husband drugged her when he confessed.

Following the incident, Glory moved out of their matrimonial home and since then, the couple have been living separately.

She asked the court to dissolve their marriage on the grounds that her husband was threatening her life and  didn’t care  for  her and the children.

In addition, she told the court that she believed  her husband  charmed her  into marrying  him and her suspicion was confirmed when she started attending church. She asked the court to compel  her husband to take care of their children by providing for their upkeep and education.

In response, Alex denied all the allegations made against him and said he  took  care of his family, but   things  went sour  when   he and his wife  started having misunderstandings. He added that he used to give his wife N200 daily and  therefore wondered  why she  claimed  he was not taking  care of his family.

He also said  he was no longer interested in the relationship and asked the court  to dissolve their  marriage.

He promised to provide N10,000 for the upkeep and education of his children.

The case was adjourned till March 5.
