Mallam Mukailu Naibi of Keke Village, Kaduna, whose spouse allegedly starved him of sex for two years, on Wednesday demanded N1.2 million as compensation from the spouse’s parents before an Abuja Area Court.
Naibi, while demonstrating at the resumed trial of the situation, informed the court that the money covered the bride-to-be price he paid before marrying Maryam, his spouse, the News Agency of Nigeria records.
He additionally told the court that the amount also covered the price of damages done to the house after Maryam purportedly set his home on fire before running away to court to seek separation.
He also tendered written documents with records of all costs made on his estranged spouse and her parents, along with a witness to affirm in his favor.
Naibi, who is 37 years old, had informed the court that his wife had refused to make love to him since they got married two years ago.
He also implicated her of setting their house on fire.
