Mother of 6 dupes hubby N3m, elopes with lover

A mother of six in Lagos has allegedly duped her husband of N3 million and eloped with her lover. Her husband, Maxwel Ihesue has moved on to Grade A Customary court, Ojo, Lagos, to end his 21- year-old marriage with his wife, Virginia Ihuesue because of infidelity. Maxwel told the court that he has been under a spell and attributed his condition to his wife.

Recounting his ordeal in court, he said: “I married Virginia in 1988. She is from Imo State and I paid a bride price of N6, 000 and did all the normal traditional rites. I am a businessman, a dealer in all kinds of electronics. I live at number 16, Ade street Sabo, Ojo, lagos. We have six children together and my first daughter is about 21 years of age.

“From the onset of this marriage, I have never enjoyed my wife. She hardly cooked for me. Almost every cooking was done by my first daughter”. He told the court that his wife, Virginia in 2007 ran away with her lover, and denied him of his conjugal sexual rights. Prior to elopement with her lover, Maxwell told the court she was fond of giving his hard-earned money to her numerous lovers. “And after squandering them, she usually came back for more. I normally give.

It’s after giving her the money that I normally regained my senses. She even spent the children’s school fees. When I confronted her, she didn’t give me any good reason for her bad behaviour. The spell she cast on me made me not to question her authority”, he said.

Marxwell also alleged that his wife even poisoned his food in attempt to get rid of him. “In one of the occasions I confronted her, she poisoned my food and I almost died. I was taken to the village for medical attention. Before I returned from the village, my wife had planned to sell up my houses, shops- even most of my property. She even sacked my agent and attorney and got hold of the documents in order to sell the property. Even now that I came back, I discovered that she has taken a physical cash worth N3m and disappeared with her lover”, he narrated.

Maxwel Ihesue is pleading for the court to dissolve his marriage, grant him the custody of the children and for them to help him retrieve his valuable documents in the wife’s custody.
The president of the court said the verdict cannot be due to the wife’s absence in court.
The case was adjourned to June 15, 2010.
