A clergy, Joel Bamimore, has sought dissolution of his 19-year-old marriage to wife, Mary, over alleged infidelity.
Bamimore dragged his wife before a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan on Thursday.
He alleged that she capitalised on his disability to continually cheat on him.
Bamimore said his father had once caught Mary in an uncompromising position with another man.
He said: “I have forgiven Mary’s adulterous behaviours before. I can no longer tolerate it because I am also a pastor and for the sake of my well-being.
“On a number of occasions, Mary has hidden under the guise of going to our senior pastor’s home to assist him to fetch water and wash his clothes.
“In the pastor’s home one day, I met both of them in a compromising position and my initial fear was confirmed.”
Mary, who now lives in Oyo Town, denied the allegations but gave her consent for divorce.
She told the court that her greatest mistake in life was her decision to marry Bamimore, in spite of her parents’ warning.
“The clergy he referred to as my lover, is a real man of God, in fact, he usually gives my husband, money to feed his family. It is true that I used to assist the man’s family with their chores,” she said.
“It has become my husband’s way of life to accuse me of adultery and embarrass me in public, stripping me naked and inflicting injuries on me.”
President of the court, Ademola Odunade, after hearing the testimonies, ordered them to produce more evidence to support their arguments.
Odunade said Bamimore was not being fair to his wife.
The case was adjourned on October 30 for continuation of hearing
