Nigeria: Pastor Seeks Dissolution Of Marriage Over Wife’s Infidelity

A 51-year-old Pastor, Sunday Owonikoko, on Wednesday pleaded with an Orile- Agege Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve his 20-year-old marriage over infidelity and threat to life.

Owonikoko, who lives at 1 Alowole St., Papa Ashafa, Orile-Agege told the court that his wife, Bolajoko, was still seeing her ex lovers.

“My wife once travelled to Ghana to meet one of her concubines; she did family planning without my consent and she goes out at will. She was suspended from the church for six months because she fought with all the ministers in the church.

"She established her own church, she fought all the members of the church and they all left," he said.

The father of four children, aged between 11 years and 19 years, also told the court that his wife threatened to destroy him and the church.

"My wife threatened to destroy my ministry and also said she would kill me. I want the court to dissolve the union and grant me custody of my children," he said.

Bolajoko, 47, denied the allegations in her response.

"My husband is adulterous; he has almost slept with all of the sisters in the church. A mother of seven is presently living with him as I speak and he has made the woman an evangelist," she said.

Bolajoko also told the court that ever since her husband eat vegetable soup in one of the sisters' house, "he has lost his mind. I don't love him anymore, I want a divorce''.

The Court President, Mr Joseph Adewusi, told the couple to maintain the peace and adjourned the case to July 2 for judgement.
