A 32-year-old woman, Kate Ude, has prayed an FCT High Court, Jabi to dissolve her four-year-old marriage to her husband, Michael Ude, over his “malfunctioning manhood”.
Kate alleged that Michael’s manhood always had inconsistent erection and that anytime the manhood became erect, he ejaculated within few seconds.
She also alleged that the man did not make known his health status before the consummation of the marriage which took place in Calabar, Cross River, in 2014.
The petitioner also said that during her traditional marriage, Michael did not show up as he was represented by his younger brother.
Kate also said that it was at the registry that she got to know him very well and prayed the court to nullify the marriage.
Responding, Michael who also filed a cross petition to divorce the woman, denied all the allegations, when cross examined by the petitioner’s lawyer, Mr Ishaka Awaliene.
“The non-erection of my manhood is not regular, it is just that l am not always in the mood whenever she is in the mood. I don’t use any enhancement drugs for sex as she alleged,’’ he said.
Ude also told the court that there was a period in June 28, 2014, when Kate left his house that she was no longer interested in the marriage.
According to Michael, she later came back after some months and decided to leave again.
Justice Venda adjourned the matter to February 6, 2018 for hearing.
