In Umuahia, a United States-based Nigerian, Emeka Mazie, yesterday dragged his 96 year old father to court for insisting on re-marrying after the death of his wife eight years ago. The suit with number HU/54/2012 filed before the Umuahia High Court 4, is presided over by Justice Agwu Kalu.
The father, Israel told the court the reasons for his decision to re-marry, ”Since my wife died eight years ago, nobody cooks or assists in clearing the compound for me. All my children live in America”.
The plaintiff, the son, told the court that he received with shock the plans of his father to remarry at his age. He said, ”If my father must get another wife, he ought to discuss it with me”.
