“When my business crumbled, I moved to Abuja and luckily, I secured a job with a private firm and I invited my wife and children to join me.

“When my wife came, I told her to bear with me and manage with my small job, pending when the bigger job will come.

“Though she agreed, but shortly after my plea, my wife started hiding food she bought with the money I gave her.

”She wastes food in order to create a shortage of food in the house.

“When  I confronted her, she told me that her plan was to make spend all my money and become a pauper.

”She had an abortion when she was four months pregnant. The same doctor she procured an abortion from is her lover,” he alleged.
