A former commissioner for Agriculture and Water Resources, Mr Alanana Otaki, has been dragged to an Upper Area Court, Lafia, for snatching the wife of Mr Peter Aboki, the Deputy Provost, College of Agriculture, Science and Technology, Lafia, Nasarawa State.
This is just as the embattled wife, Mrs Felicia Aboki, filed a case against her husband seeking dissolution of their 18 years marriage.
Addressing the court on Monday in Lafia, Mr Shikama Shyeltu, Counsel to Mr Aboki, applied that the case brought by the wife be suspended pending the determination on the matter of her alleged extra marital relationship with the former commissioner.
On his part, counsel to the defendant, Mr David Meshi said his client was no longer interested in the 18-year-old marriage to the applicant, which was why she decided to seek divorce.
Lawyer to the ex-commissioner, Mr Joseph Agbo, argued that his client did not have hands in the marriage crisis between Mr and Mrs Peter Aboki.
After listening to all the parties, Mr Abubakar Lanze, the presiding judge, adjourned the case to September 15 for hearing.
Gov. Abdullahi Sule had earlier on Monday sacked all commissioners and other political appointees in his cabinet.
