A businessman, Muyiwa Owolabi, has dragged his wife, Tinuola, to an Ado Ekiti Customary Court to seek dissolution of their ten-year-old marriage over “serial adultery with several men” she met on social media.
Both the petitioner and the defendant agreed on the dissolution the marriage over irreconcilable differences but the court is yet to resolve on the custody of their two children,
Muyiwa, the Petitioner, who told the court to dissolve the union claimed that he had caught his wife with several men including his junior at secondary school.
He said Tinuola uses the social media platforms like Facebook and WhatsApp to connect with many men who are now her “man friends and concubines.”
Muyiwa told the court that he had the printouts of the adulterous communications and pictures, including private ones where they recorded pictures of their private parts and other amorous messages.
The printouts of the alleged ‘compromising’ pictures on WhatsApp, and conversation with one Toyin Igbalajobi, her Lagos-based friend who allegedly connected her with men in Lagos and the NOKIA C3 with which he carried out the act were admitted by the court president, Mr. Joseph Ogunsemi and marked as exhibits.
Muyiwa told the court that he caught Tinuola with one Benson Onyechere, his junior at Christ’s School, Ado Ekiti who usually speak with her on phone but when he caught her, she replaced Benson’s name with a supposedly female name, ‘Bola’ to hide her lover’s identity.
The petitioner told the court that another Facebook lover is one Taiwo Oyetunji whom she claimed she met on the social media platform on March 27,2012 while another Facebook lover, one Alaba Sunday Samson had the effrontery of coming to their matrimonial home to visit Tinuola.
Muyiwa also identified other men his wife had amorous relationship with to include Aduloju Olu and Andy Harris who is based overseas, Yinka Daramola and, Kunle Lawal and Bashir.
