The seven-year-old marriage between one Omolara and her husband, Abiodun Ojeyemi, has been dissolved by a Customary Court in Mapo Ibadan on Friday, November 10, over adultery.
Omolara had written a petition to the court to dissolve the marriage over alleged threat to her life.
The president of the court, Chief Ademola Odunade, had this to say: “It is so tragic that a man can deliberately put a housewife with children in a family way.
“It has never happened in the history of this court that a concubine will accompany his mistress to the court with the intention of daring us, saying nothing will happen.
“In the interest of peaceful living, the union between Omolara and Abiodun has ceased to be, henceforth.
“Abiodun shall take custody of the two children produced by the union,” he said.
Abiodun, a staff of Nigeria Breweres, while narrating his own side of the story said that Omolara, his wife, was an unrepentant adulterous woman in spite of his his genuine love for her.
“My lord, ever since I got married to Omolara seven years ago, little did I know that she had been occupied with all sorts of escapades in the name of going to church vigil.
“What I know is that she usually tell me that she was going for church vigil and I never had any reason to suspect her because I trusted her.
“However, around June this year, Omolara started starving me of my conjugal right.
“Before I eventually knew the truth, Omolara had told me that her concubine was her uncle and I was relating with him well as an in-law.
“One day, I got home and discovered that she had packed all the property away, including mine.
“In fact, I have never failed to perform my responsibility as a husband to her and as a father to our children.
“It was wrong for Omolara to hide under any stupid disguise to be neck deep in adultery. “Omolara’s concubine is a priest at a Celestial Church, Emmanuel Parish, Elewiodo-Ojo, Ibadan.”
Also, The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Omolara’s concubine had dared the court and her husband to do anything detrimental to Omolara, his lover.
David Adebayo, confessed that Omolara was his concubine and had been sleeping with her for the past 12 years.
He said: “My lord, anytime Omolara left her husband in Ibadan, she used to come to meet me in Lagos where we usually have fun.
“Sometimes, she came after her closing hour in her office and returned to Ibadan the following morning.
“Omolara only told me that she and her husband were no more in good terms even though she had already had two children.
“I swear by the Holy Bible, I didn’t intend to destroy her relationship with her husband; she is just my girlfriend.
“The pregnancy in her womb belongs to me; I was the one that made her a woman during my NYSC days.
“I followed her into the court to ensure that her union with Abiodun is dissolved today not that I am daring the court’s power.”
