A 49-year-old pastor simply identified as Jack has filed a suit against his wife on the grounds of infidelity and prayed the court to dissolve the marriage after he caught her having sex with a guest pastor he invited to his church.
It was learnt that the pastor’s wife simply identified as Kate has failed to show up in court for the fifth hearing.
Court officials at an Orile Agege Customary Court instructed the bailiff to serve her the court order again with hope that she show up, Daily Independent reports.
During the hearing in court, the apparently irked pastor of an undisclosed church said, “When my pastor-friend came to Lagos on my invitation for our church programme, I noticed how my wife was admiring him which made me to suspect a foul play.
“After the pastor had returned to his base in Ibadan, my wife was nowhere to be found in Lagos, so I traced her to Ibadan and met her with the pastor.
“Before she left finally in 2011, whenever she left the house in the morning, she would only return late in the night, she was not taking care of me and my family.”
He added, “She would not welcome my family members anytime they come to our house, she did not take care of my mother when she was sick for four years until the woman died.
“The worst of it is that she denied me sex before she left but I maintained my integrity not to commit adultery.
“I reported her to her mother but instead for my wife to heed the counsel of her mother, she chose to fight me.”
The case has been adjourned till Monday, March 23, 2015 for further hearing.
