A 37-year-old plumber, Olusola Owolabi, has prayed an Ikole Customary Court in Ekiti State to dissolve his 15-year-long marriage over claims that his wife, Taiwo, was pregnant for her pastor.
According to the aggrieved man, his wife left him since 2012 following an unresolved scuffle between them.
Speaking at the court, the petitioner said, “The pregnancy she is carrying is for her pastor and it will be difficult allowing her to remain as my wife.’’
Owolabi pleaded with the court to grant him custody of their two children aged 10 years and 7 years respectively, who are with their mother.
He assured the jurors that he would properly take care of the children.
On her part, the defendant was indifferent and remained mum about the divorce suit filed by her husband.
However, the court president, Mrs Yemisi Ojo, directed the couple to bring their witnesses at the next sitting.
Ojo therefore, adjourned the case till Tuesday, July 21, 2015 for further mention.
