A businessman, Anthony Domi, on Thursday, told a Customary Court in Nyanya Abuja, that his wife, Ella Obiora, was accusing him of impregnating her maid.
The respondent said this in his defence, in a divorce petition filed by his wife.
“I impregnate the young lady due to an agreement between me and my wife, which was an alternative we chose instead of adopting a child.
