My wife eloped with her lover, divorce-seeking husband tells court

NEWS DIGEST – A Jos Central Area Court sitting in Kasuwan Nama, Jos, on Thursday dissolved a three-year-old marriage between Adaka Yunana and his wife, Helen, after she eloped with her lover.

A penal of Judges, Ghazali Adam and Hyacenth Dolnanan, in granting the request made by Yunana, said, all efforts to reconcile the parties had failed.

The judges ordered Yunana and Helen to go their separate way.

“She didn’t call to say why she abandoned her home and when I called her.”
