“My wife is cheating on me with her female friends,” that was how a 39-year-old civil servant, Olabode Adesanya narrated his ordeal to an Igando Customary Court in Lagos, Nigeria.
Adesanya said that his wife, Abosede, of three years marriage engages in lesbianism.

“I also see all sorts of pictures of naked women with my wife sent to my phone by her friends and informing me about their acts of lesbianism and asking me to stay away from her,’’ the estranged man said.
He said apart from lesbianism, his wife starves him of sex.
“I can count the number of times my wife allowed me to make love to her in the three years of our marriage.
“This year, we only made love once, while I was making love to her, she did not even respond, she just laid on the bed like a log of wood.
“She always tell me she was not in the mood to make love, that is why she is yet to have a baby.
“The day I made love to her by force, she reported me to the Police and accused me of rape,” the embittered husband said.
According to him, Abosede reported him again at a Police Station and when he was summoned, she demanded to be paid off by him as she was fed up with the marriage.
“My wife demanded for the sum of N5million and a brand new car. l did not agree to her request because I cannot afford it.
“Since then she has made life unbearable for me,” he said.
The petitioner urged the Court to dissolve the marriage that he was no longer interested.
“Dissolve the marriage that has not produced any fruit so that I can move on with my life,” Olabode Adesanya said.

“My husband love sex too much, he is fond of raping me,” she said.
The 34-year-old businesswoman denied being a lesbian.
