A man taken before a Lagos court by his wife with the aim of divorcing him has shocked the court with his own side of the story.
Olatunde Ogundimu, told a Grade A Customary Court in Agege that after he risked his life to save his wife’s, she proceeded to have an affair with a man who is well known to him.
He reportedly said that his wife moves around without regard to the fact that she is a married woman. He added that she usually leaves home very early in the morning with the excuse that she is going to her mother’s house and would not return until late in the night.
“She will go out on Saturday only to come back on Sunday and when asked, her mother would say she sent her on an errand.”
He alleged that his wife is also unfaithful as she’s having an affair with a butcher.
“I was surprised to see our butcher’s number on her phone. She said that he was just being nice to her by selling N45, 000 worth of meat to her, but when I called the number, the butcher told me that I should stop calling him if I don’t want to vomit blood.”
I was scared by his response and I stopped calling his number.
Disclosing how he once carried out a sacrifice on behalf of his wife, Olatunde said that his wife once had a serious cough which defied all treatment.
According to him, he spent a fortune to cure it, while no one rose to their help financially.
“The most secretive thing I did on her behalf was a ritual in form of sacrifice so that she could be healed. This was a thing I have never done for anyone else,” he added.
Yemisi had earlier in her testimony stated that she and her husband were married for six years and blessed with a two-year-old girl.
In her defence, she stated that it was her husband who told her to collect meat from the butcher and had refused to pay him.
“When I was sick, it was the butcher who paid for my treatment. Since then, he has continued to ask after my well-being and has been taking care of my child and I,” she said.
She therefore pleaded with the court to dissolve the marriage.
The court ruled that the husband should pay N4,000 pending when the case will end and adjourned the case till September 26.
