44yrs old Pastor Olufemi Adewumi, who lives at 12 Ajiboye Close, Agbado Oke-Odo, Agege, disclosed that his wife is threatening his life, stealing and also commits adultery amongst other things.
The pastor said: "I caught my wife and one of her lovers in our house sometime in 2013. She was not expecting me to come home at that time, else she would not have invited her lover."
The case was heard by a Customary Court in Orile-Agege area of the state despite the absence of the wife.
The pastor who looked very sad had told the court that his wife was adulterous and kept bad company. He also told the court that he tried in vain to keep his wife away from her bad friends.
He said money also got missing in their room on some occasions and described his wife as a fetish woman who threatened his life. “I want the dissolution of the marriage and custody of my children,” he pleaded.
In his ruling, the Court President, Adegboyega Omilola, said that the marriage had broken down irreparably.
“Since the inception of the hearing, the woman failed to appear before the court; a court summon was served to her, but she failed to come. The court cannot continue to wait for the woman that failed to honour the court.
“So, the marriage is dissolved today. You have ceased to be husband and wife, you shall go your separate ways unmolested,” the court ruled and granted the Pastor custody of their children, aged 12 and 15.
“Take care of the children and ensure you see to their well being,” Pastor Olufemi was advised.
