.Declares Man Who Says His Wife Slept With Lover While Pregnant In His House –
By Nike Adekunle –
“My wife, Olaide made love to her lover when she was pregnant in my house, she is unfaithful,” that was how a 39-year-old businessman, Femi Alabi narrated his marital problems to an Igando Customary Court in Lagos.
He accused his wife of living a wayward and adulterous life and Alabi says he is fed up with the marriage.
“I discovered this when she slept off after chatting on facebook. What attracted my attention to the chat was my name that I saw on the screen and I was curious to read the conversation.
“Her lover told her that he enjoyed the sex they had together and my pregnant wife also appreciated him for giving her a good sex.
“Because of their chat, I denied the paternity of the baby from the womb up till now because I am not sure I am the baby’s biological father.
“Also in that chat, my wife told her lover everything about me, my full name, where I work and where the guy can locate me.
“Since that day I became afraid because I do not know what they were up to. When I informed her mother about her daughter’s conversation with a man, she told me that I was lucky that her daughter did not bring the man to our matrimonial bed,” the estranged man said.
The petitioner accused the woman of being uncaring as she usually starves him of food.
“She does not cook; instead she goes to her mother’s shop to assist her to sell. Anytime I call her mother to release her to come home, she used to tell me that her daughter is not a slave.
“So I wash my son’s school uniform and also do the cooking. In fact, I am fed up with the marriage,” he said at the Court.
The respondent, Olaide, on her part said that she was not adulterous.
“When I was carrying my second pregnancy, my husband saw my chat with my ‘male friend’ on facebook and accused me of dating him.
“My husband told me that he will not accept the baby because he believed that the man I was chatting with impregnated me.
“The man I was chatting with did not made love to me. Since he kept to his words and refused to accept the baby, my family took up the responsibility of the boy who is now two years old,” she explained.
The 35-year-old businesswoman said that her husband was envious of men being around her and prevented her from working so that other men would not go after her.
“I got a job in a bank but my husband did not allow me to take up the job and he is always monitoring my movement.
“Any time I go out and I did not come home before 4.00 p.m. he will lock me out,” she added.
She consented to the dissolution of the marriage saying she too was tired and no longer in love with her husband.
The President of the Court, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, advised the couple to go for a DNA test to confirm the paternity of the baby.
He adjourned the case to June 27 for further hearing.
