Court Dissolves 9-Year Old Marriage, Despite Husband’s Pleas

A 36-year-old woman has described
her husband as a thief and a fake pastor, pleading with the court to dissolve
their nine-year-old marriage.
Mrs Adeola Imafidon told the
Alakuko Customary Court in Lagos State that her husband, Sunday Imafidon, had
become a disgrace to her.
Adeola, a laboratory scientist,
said: “My husband is a fake pastor, thief and womaniser. He has been arrested
over six times for defrauding people. I am always embarrassed each time I go to
bail him. My health is suffering a great deal.

“Nowadays, when I talk much, my
heart palpitates. I have always endured because of our children.
“He doesn’t cater for our children
let alone pay our house rent. Currently, we live with my mother. I can’t
remember the last time he sent our children’s monthly allowance.
He once beat me and pushed me
towards a moving vehicle. I’m tired of his attitude. I don’t want to die;
please dissolve our marriage.
Forty-four-year-old Sunday said he
duped people in order to satisfy his wife.
“When I had a job, my wife never
complained of anything or my character. But since I lost my job, my wife’s
attitude changed. I was forced to borrow money from people but I get arrested
whenever I don’t pay back their money.
“It is true she has been
responsible for the children’s upkeep. The last time I slept with her was two
months ago at a hotel, not three years. If I wasn’t a good husband, we wouldn’t
have children. I still love my wife and I promise to turn a new leaf if our
issue is resolved,” he said.
President of the court, Chief Awos
Awosola, asked Sunday if it was right for a pastor to take his wife to a hotel
to sleep with her.
He pleaded with the wife to
consider her husband’s plea, following which there was a 30-minute recess for
the couple to have a private talk; but the wife insisted on dissolution.
Awosola dissolved the union and
ordered Sunday to be responsible for the children’s school fees. He is also to
provide N10,000 monthly for their feeding.
