For impregnating her married friend, a 34-year-old businesswoman, Mrs Ajoke Oke, has approached an Igando Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve her 13-year-old marriage, eyeonthenews.com reports.
The petitioner told the court that her husband, Adebola, was a flirt, saying, he impregnated her friend.
“My husband was cheating on me, he impregnated my friend, a mother of two whose husband just traveled abroad last year.
“He gave her the document of eight out of the 14 shops he built inside Ikotun Market without collecting a dime from her but he never gave me one shop since he married me.
“He also bought the woman he’s flirting with a house at Egan in Igando area of Lagos state,” she said.
According to her, Adebola has been starving her of sex for the past four years and had now turned her to an abandoned property.
The mother of two also accused her husband of battery.
“My husband used to beat me and would not stop until I get injuries. One night, he came back home drunk, got a knife and almost slit my throat.
“I had to run out of the home to save my life. My life is endangered and as far as I’m concerned. Sometimes, my husband would naked me and poured grounded pepper on me before beating me,” she said.
The estranged wife begged the court to end the marriage that she was no longer interested.
However, the respondent, Adebola, who claimed to be the third husband of the wife, described her a “serial divorcee” as she had married and divorced two husbands before he married her.
“My wife is adulterous, I am the third man that married her,” he said.
Adebola said that he was told by his mother that his mother-in-law was a witch.
“My mother told me that my wife’s mother is a witch and that she has hand in my downfall. That was why I stopped making love to her because her mother can use her to get me the more,”he said.
The 40-year-old businessman said that his wife was always threatening his life with dangerous weapons.
“My wife always tells me that blood will flow whenever she is fighting me, she stabs me with dangerous weapons. There was a day she broke our standing mirror on me in my sleep because I refused to follow her to a church programme.
“She always tells my apprentices that I will soon die that she will be the one to settle them,” he said.
Adebola said that his wife was troublesome that she used to fight him and that she also fought with her friend that is presently pregnant for him which landed her in prison for five days.
He consented to the dissolution of their marriage saying he too was no longer interested.
The Court President, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, adjourned the case to May 30 for further hearing.
