The Deputy Provost, College of Agriculture, Science and Technology, Lafia, Peter Aboki, has dragged a former Commissioner for Agriculture and Water Resources, Alanana Otaki, to an Upper Area Court in Lafia, Nasarawa State, for snatching his wife.
The embattled wife Felicia Aboki, had also filed a case against her husband seeking a dissolution of their 18 years of marriage.
Counsel to Aboki, Shikama Shyeltu, while addressing the court on Monday, prayed that the case brought by the wife be suspended pending the determination on the matter of her alleged extramarital relationship with the former commissioner.
On his part, Counsel to the defendant David Meshi said that his client was no longer interested in the 18-year-old marriage to the applicant, which was why she decided to seek divorce.
Counsel to the ex-commissioner Joseph Agbo, argued that his client did not have hands in the marriage crisis between the Abokis.
The Presiding Judge Abubakar Lanze, after listening to the parties involved, later adjourned the case to September 15 for hearing.
