A Mapo custom court sitting in Ibadan on Monday dissolved a 20-year marriage between a van, Oluseyi Adegoke, and his wife, Bunmi, on grounds of infidelity.
Mr Adegoke, who resides in the Bembo-Apata area of Ibadan on his petition, also accused his wife of being a threat to his life and of trying to inherit his property.
The President of the Court, Ademola Odunade, announced that any mother who, like Mrs. Bunmi, founds children against her fathers and vice versa, will suffer the wrath of God.
Mr Odunade therefore dissolved the union so that there could be peace.
He gave Mr. Adegoke custody of the two children and ordered Bunmi to leave the house immediately.
In his petition, Mr. Adegoke accused his wife of introducing her lover as a relative.
“I paid respect to my wife’s lover who deserves a parent-in-law. I didn’t know what was going on.
“In 2017 a woman in our neighborhood told me that Bunmi was having a romantic affair with her husband and asked me to warn my wife.
“When Bunmi realized I had discovered her game, she left my home with all my belongings in December 2017.
“Three months later, she pleaded with me and asked for forgiveness. I took it back because of our two children, ”he said.
He said he hasn’t been himself since her return in 2020.
“I had a stroke and lost my food while Bunmi refused to worry about my well-being.
“She locked me out of my house, claiming the house is hers. My master Bunmi put me in bondage and ransacked my valuable property for sale, ”Adegoke said.
In her defense, Ms. Bunmi claimed that she introduced Mr. Adegoke to someone who held him responsible for their association’s income generation.
“Adegoke never bothered about the kids and me. I was responsible for our children’s school fees. I took care of him when he was seriously ill, ”said Ms. Bunmi.
