Estranged wife of former governor of Enugu state, Sullivan Iheanacho Chime, has asked that the federal capital territory (FCT) high court grant her custody of their 10-year-old son.
The estranged wife, Clara Chime told the court that she was depressed during her marriage because her husband only had marital relations with her only on their wedding night and never touched her again.
This application by Clara Chime was made following the former governor’s prayer to dissolve their marriage of 11 years. She also asked the court to grant her prayer of a monthly fee of N500,000 for their child, she said her son was not properly cared for. To buttress her application, Clara said she was only allowed to see him five hours a month under heavy security.
Clara also denied having schizophrenia but said she saw the chief medical director (CMD) of a neural psychiatric facility because her husband brought him home.
“[She had] some medical challenges, and it would be very unkind of me to talk about her condition on the pages of newspapers,” he had said.
“We’ve been battling her health challenges prior to my inauguration in 2011. It was so bad at a time that she had to be taken out of the governor’s lodge for treatment.”
The case has been adjourned till June 10 for the continuation of hearing.
