A 42-year-old civil servant, Adeshina Tabura, on Thursday told an Ikorodu Customary Court, Lagos, that his wife’s lover used to visit their matrimonial home.
Tabura, a resident of Gbenga Salami, Ikorodu, while testifying in a divorce suit he filed, said his wife’s lover was also always threatening him through phone calls.
“My wife once confessed to me that one man saw her in a hotel and the man had been threatening her to bring money.
“She doesn’t come home every day any more; she is always going to night vigils without her children.
“I have also seen her with different men; please separate us so that she can continue her wayward life.”
The petitioner also told the court that his wife was in the habit of spending his money on her lovers.
The respondent, Adenike, 38, mother of four, denied the allegations, saying that her husband was the one involved in extra marital affairs.
“Severally, I have seen my husband flirting with different women that I know.
“He had married three wives after me and I never complained. He wants to marry another wife, that’s why he wants me out of his house.”
She prayed the court to help save the marriage.
The court president, Mrs Ronke Adetola, adjourned the case till June 24, for possible reconciliation and judgment.
