A 50-year-old man has prayed an Ijanikin Customary Court, Lagos, to dissolve his marriage because he found that his wife had sex with his best friend in their house.
Narrating the ugly incident, Mr. Abayomi Orioye told the court that he told the wife on the day the act took place that he was going on a tour only to return home unexpectedly and caught his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Orioye having sex with his best friend.
He added that his wife got pregnant shortly thereafter, but her son did not resemble him.
He therefore urged the court to dissolve the marriage and grant him custody of the children, because he didn’t want to have anything to do with Elizabeth anymore.
The 31-year-old wife didn’t deny the allegation. She however pleaded that the court should not dissolve the marriage as she still loved her husband. She also appealed to the court to help her beg her husband as, according to her, she was ashamed of what she did, and felt guilty, asking her husband to forgive her for the sake of their children.
The court president, Mr. S. K. Hussain, adjourned the case for further hearing.
