Physically challenged man begs court to terminate 23-year-old marriage
A fifty-nine-year-old physically challenged man, Mr. Olaiya Adeagbo, has pleaded with an Igando Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve his 23-year-old marriage, accusing his wife of infidelity. He told the court yesterday that his wife, with whom he had four children, was having an affair with his neighbour.
“I always received a tip-off from our neighbours that my wife was having an affair with one of our neighbours, who is a bachelor. That fateful day, two of my neighbours told me they sighted her when she sneaked into her lover’s room.
“I went to knock on his door but he refused to open after hearing my voice. I continued knocking and he later opened his door, and I saw my wife hiding behind his door sweating and panting.
“After some days, her lover died and my wife disappeared from the house without taking anything and refused to come back. My wife later went to marry another man, who also died after some months of their marriage,” he said.
In her submission, the wife, Mrs. Taiwo Adeagbo, 46, also accused her husband of committing adultery. She told the court that the man her husband saw her with was her benefactor, not her lover.
“I am not having any affair with that our neighbour, he is only my benefactor, who always meets my needs as my husband is not responsible, but unfortunately, he is no more.” The mother of four said her husband had at one point eloped with her best friend. She begged the court to grant her husband’s wish.
