an Evangelist, asked the court to dissolve her marriage on the ground of adultery, desertion and lack of love on the part of the husband.
She said her husband’s behavior towards her changed after 7 years of their marriage with no child. She added that since then, Femi had been sleeping around with different women, most of whom were members of his congregation. She added that after several days of abandoning her, she traced her husband to his church.
She claimed that on getting there, she met her husband on the floor of the church office with one of the women in the church having sex. She also accused Femi of having a child, a a product of his extra-marital affairs, out of wedlock. Femi pleaded with the court not to dissolve the marriage, saying he still loved the woman, whom he described as a virtuous woman that had been taking care of him since he married her.
In his ruling the President of the Court, Joshua Adunbi, said the words and body language of the wife had shown that she was tired of the union, he therefore dissolved the marriage and ordered Doris to pay the sum of N2,500 to Femi as a refund of dowry…… wch he adviced Femi to use to get a befitting mattress for his church office……
