A Nigerian man, Shola Motunbi, has cried out after his wife, Marian Ekiomado, married his best man while still legally married to him.
Shola disclosed this in an interview with the Vanguard, where he accused his wife of betraying their marriage by getting married to a man who was his best man on their wedding day.
“I am married to Marian Ekiomado, on August 6th 2016 both tradition and the white wedding took place, we also had marriage registry," he began.
"However, a few months into our wedding I caught her with different text messages on her phone and discovered Facebook account with her boyfriends.
“Whenever I leave the house she always removes the wedding frames from the house and invites her boyfriend in, meanwhile she has a little girl called Treasure that was her first daughter outside wedlock. Whenever I came home the daughter will tell me that daddy mummy removes the frame from the house and one brother came, she almost killed her daughter that night if not that I was around.
"After all the arguments the parent begged, and so I let go until again, I caught her chatting with a man she was having an amorous affair with on Facebook I confronted her and the mother, but she vehemently denied having anything to do with the man.
“But what got me suspicious was that after she was 3 to 4 months pregnant, having terminated 2 pregnancy in the name of stress. She called her younger brother to fight and injured me in the house and I left and returned after she delivered on the 5th September 2017, I went there just once to see the child with my family after then she refuses to take my calls and refuses to bring the child for me to see.
"These made me get suspicious the more and so demanded a DNA test which she and her parent refused, to my greatest surprise I receive a call on Saturday 27th if April 2019 that she’s getting married in her mother’s house at Sapele road. I later found that she was getting married to the man who bests me.
Mr. Shola has filed a “breach of marital laws” suit in a magistrate court to seek redress. He has, however, not disclosed the one in particular to journalists.
