A woman has told a court she is looking for a divorce because her husband "wets the bed".

Businesswoman Juliana Okoli, told the court she "is tired of living in the same house as him".

“When he wakes up in the middle of the night and is feeling cold because of the urine on the bed, he places my clothes on the urine to protect himself from the cold," she told the court in Abuja, Nigeria.

She continued: “My husband is also a drunk; whenever he drinks, he bed wets even many more times before morning and when I talk to him about it, he starts beating me.

“He sometimes chases me and our children out of the house in the middle of the night.

“My husband has left all the financial responsibility of the family to me; he does not even know how much the children are paying as school fees", reports.

Okoli said she built the house the couple are living in with "her own money".

She has asked the court to grant divorce and give her custody of her children.

Her husband denied the majority of the allegations, but admitted he does urinate in bed sometimes.

The court has adjourned the case until May 16.
