A polygamous Lagos State prophet who is married to six women on Wednesday, August 19, 2015 prayed a customary court sitting in Ikorodu area of the state to dissolve his union with his 4th wife because she does not respect the house of God.

65-year-old Olowolade David Laizer, got married to the defendant, Esther Anuoluwapo Laizer, over 31 years ago.

But he realized that the 55-year-old woman does not respect the house of God as she usually rains curses and blasphemes his church at the slightest provocation.

The prophet who gave his church address as 8/4 Laizer Estate, Graceland, Bayeku, Ikorodu, told the court that the problems with his fourth wife started when they lost their first son in 2013.

He said, “My late son was a university student outside the state, but died after a brief illness on his way to Lagost.

“My family and hers had a parental dispute when we wanted to get married, so, we had to do two separate introductions and she even said I would die within three years if I divorce her.”

In defence, the woman, a teacher, said: “He preaches about me in church, saying all sorts of things. He talks about what happens with me in his sermons.

“After 31 years of marriage and five children, he said my private part smells, so for that reason, I’ve denied him of sex for over a year now.

“Four days after I lost my son, his sixth wife came into my room and took my pant and bra. I don’t know what she used them for, but she later returned it them,” Esther stated.

“She also cooked for me and put six pieces of meat in the soup. I refused to eat it because I didn’t know what that meant or who sent her,” she quipped.

The court president, Olu Adebiyi, encouraged both parties to keep the peace.

He however adjourned the case till September 14 and told them to come with their family members for possible reconciliation.
