"My Wife Had S3x With Her Ex-husband On Our Matrimonial Bed" - Barber Tells Court
A barber, Gbenga Akinade, on Friday at an Ibadan Grade C Customary Court, secured the dissolution of his six-year-old marriage on grounds of infidelity. Gbenga had told the court that his wife, Busayo, had sex with her former husband on his (Gbenga’s) matrimonial bed, adding that he could no longer tolerate her adulterous way.
He testified that he met the defendant when she was hawking herbal liquor (Agbo-Jedi), and that both of them agreed to marry after few months of courtship. He said, “I did not know that she was a divorcee with two kids until she got pregnant for me. I began to suspect her adulterous ways after she gave birth to our second child.
She used to go out for two or three days, leaving the children with neighbours.
Her immoral affairs with her ex-husband came into open recently when I caught her having sex with the man on our matrimonial bed.
I beat the hell out of her that day but allowed the man to go because unpleasant things might happen if I beat him.
I decided for divorce in order to forget how I met her with her ex-husband on my bed.” The petitioner prayed the court to allow him to have the custody of his children.
She pleaded with the court to peacefully resolve the conflict.
The President of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, dissolved the marriage on grounds of lack of love.
Balogun ordered that two of the three children should be in the custody of their father while the last child should be with the mother.
The president of the court ordered the petitioner to be paying N4, 000 monthly to the respondent for the upkeep of the only child with her.
