A civil servant in Ondo State, Mr. Adebayo Ojo has asked an Akure Customary court to dissolve his 17 year-old marriage with his wife, Ebunoluwa over alleged infidelity.
Besides, Ojo also expressed his distress over the attitude of his three children toward him, accusing the defendant of turning them against him.
The plaintiff told the court that he could no longer cope with marriage because he has on several occasions caught his wife with several men on their matrimonial bed.
He added that his wife was found of making suspicious phone calls during the day and midnight, saying “these are evidences that would attest to the fact that my wife is a prostitute”
Ojo also accused his wife of being disrespectful and refused to show any remorse about her behaviour.
Ebunoluwa while defending herself said all the men claimed to be her concubines by her husband were just people she worked with as a labourer.
She said she regretted of marrying her husband, who she believed has two wives but later discovered his wives were eight.
The defendant noted that the children were only angry with their father over his failure to perform his responsibility as a father.
However, the Customary President, Mr. Olayinka Falodun, while adjourning the case till November 4, asked the two parties to bring two of their relatives each to the court.
