Iga Bale, a businessman, has alleged that his wife, Lisa, aborted her four months pregnancy at a hospital owned by a doctor who is also her lover.
He told the Customary Court in Nyanya, Abuja, that she also swore to impoverish him, asking that their marriage is dissolved.
“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 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.
