My wife’s pastor does spiritual matters in our room, man tells court

A 52-year-old driver, Wasiu Oyedele, on Wednesday sought dissolution of his 23-year-old marriage, saying he could no longer tolerate the adulterous nature of his wife, Afusat.

He told an Igando Customary Court, Lagos that Afusat, with whom he had four children, had the habit of bringing her lovers into their matrimonial home.

“My wife brings her lovers into our home, and anytime I query her, she fights me.

“She used to come with a particular man into our matrimonial home and my children told me that the same man regularly visits her in her shop.

“On many occasions, I met her with her pastor in our room and whenever I asked of her pastor’s mission, she always said he came for spiritual matters,’’ Oyedele said.

The petitioner said that his wife got pregnant for another man after she had their first baby.

“My wife abandoned our 10-month-old baby for me and got pregnant for another man. She came back after some years and I accepted her,” he said.

According to him,  his wife does not have any respect for his family.

“My wife used to call my father a witch and always fought with my mother whenever she visited; my mother has stopped coming to my house,’’ he said.

Oyedele also accused Afusat of being fetish.

“I saw charms in my wife’s room and I called our children and our neighbours to come and see.

“I believe those charms in her room caused my illness because anytime I go to the hospital for treatment, they always tell me to seek the help of a spiritualist,” he said.

The petitioner presented to the court pictures of the charms as evidence.

He also said his wife chased away his first wife who did not bear him any child by always mocking and calling her a barren wife.

The petitioner begged the court to terminate the marriage, saying he was no longer interested.

Rebutting some of the allegations, Afusat pleaded with the court not grant her husband’s wish, as she was still in love with him.

“Please do not grant my husband’s wish for the dissolution of our marriage; I am still in love with him, and besides, I don’t have anywhere to go,” she begged.

Afusat, 40, who is a trader, said she was not fetish and did not know how the charms got into her room.

The mother of four said she did not just abandon their baby to get pregnant for another man, but it was her husband that chased her out of his house.

“My husband chased me out of his house after I had our first baby and that made me get pregnant for another man,” she told the court.
