My Wife Has Turned Our Home Into A Brothel, Man Tells Court


Lagos – The 22-year-old marriage of Mr Tunji
Oyedele, a 60-year-old Lagos businessman,
may be dissolved over his wife’s alleged sexual
recklessness and infidelity.
Oyedele told an Igandu Customary Court in
Lagos, on Wednesday, that his wife, Rumoke, a
55-year-old trader, with whom he had four
children, was promiscuous.
“Whenever I travel, my wife brings men into our
house; on two occasions, I caught my wife
with her lovers in our bedroom.
“On one occasion, I came home unannounced
and caught her with one of her lovers in our
bedroom.
“On another occasion, I caught her with another
man who she claimed was her Pastor.
“She claimed that the said Pastor wanted to
take her to a river for a special bath to avert
spiritual attack,” he alleged.
The petitioner further alleged that his wife was
fetish and was always in possession of
different charms.
“I see different strange objects in my bathing
water, food and everywhere in the house.
“There was a day I entered her room in her
absence and saw feathers tied with clothes and
other diabolical objects.
“I believe that my persistent illness, which has
deferred medical solution, is as a result of her
fetish acts.
“I have been forced to leave my own house
because I don’t want to die now,” he said.
Oyedele presented the pictures of the charms
as exhibits, and begged the court to dissolve
the marriage as he was no longer in love.
Rumoke, however, debunked the allegations,
and stated that she and her husband had lived
in peace until January 2016, when he married a
new wife.
“My husband and I never fought; but
immediately he married another woman, his
attitude changed.
“His new wife accused me of sending hired
killers to her and my husband turned me into a
punching bag,” she said.
Rumoke told the court that she was not
adulterous.
“The man my husband first saw in our bedroom
was my classmate in primary school.
“The other man was my Pastor, who came for
spiritual purpose,” she explained.
The respondent said that she was not ready to
divorce her husband because she was still in
love.
The court president, Mr Adegboyega Omilola,
adjourned the case to March 7, for further
hearing.
