On a day lovers all over the world were celebrating love on Friday, an Abuja woman begged a divorce court to separate her from her policeman husband, Jackson Ekanem, whom she termed a lion.
“My Lord, look at my husband. You will think that he is an angel. He is a lion, I don’t want to die in this marriage,” the woman, Tina said.
The lady’s assertion followed the plea by her husband not to allow the divorce petition filed by his wife at a Customary Court in Nyanya, Abuja.
“I cannot waste money to marry a wife and then she wants to leave me. No way. I cannot allow that.

Mohammed adjourned the matter until Feb. 17, for hearing
