A Deputy Director of the State Security Service (SSS) serving in Oyo State, Mr. Edward Magaji has  dragged his wife before a Yola Chief Magistrates’ Court 5 presided by Magistrate Abubakar Bako, accusing her of violence, and claiming that she destroyed the windscreen of his girlfriend’s car.

Magaji insisted that his wife with whom he has four children was wrong to have damaged the car belonging to his mistress, saying the action was tantamount to taking the law into her hand.

The SSS director told the court that his wife had been a pain in the neck since he assisted his girlfriend, Miss Natasha Aminu Danbaba, a nurse with Specialist Hospital, Yola, with some token to buy a car in Ibadan, adding that his wife had been terrorising Natasha, calling her all sorts of names to the extent of going to her work place to fight her.

He added that his wife committed the action in his presence while he was in Natasha’s house and engaged them in a fight resulting to the breaking of the car’s windscreen.

When the counsel to the wife, Barrister Binanu Eston asked Magaji to define the relationship between him and the girlfriend, Magaji simply said he was tired of his wife and could not answer such a question as he has since divorced her for her many troubles.

The Judge later adjourned the case to Monday, February 17, for further hearing.
