Husband busts wife with several lovers in Lagos

19 October 2016, 18:07

Lagos - A 40-year-old clearing agent, Andrew Ekpenaslim on Wednesday told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos that he had caught his wife, Saraphina, severally with some of her lovers.

Andrew is seeking a dissolution of the marriage, citing his wife infidelity and threat to life.

“My wife is promiscuous, she dates different men. I have caught her severally with some of her lovers. She is also having affair with our pastor, I got to know when her cell phone rang and she left our room to receive it.

“I trailed her behind without her knowing and l eavesdropped her telling the pastor, `I love you’ when she ended the call. When she returned to the room, I secretly copied the number unknown to her and saved it on my cell phone.

“I dialed the number on my cell phone, it was our pastor’s name that appeared on the screen,’’ Andrew said. adding the his wife was also secretive.

“My wife had two boys from two men, before we got married, but she did not tell me, a reliable source let the cat out of the bag and told me the boys were my wife’s children.

“After our marriage, she brought them to live with us and I was paying their school fees,’’ he said.

But, Saraphina, 42, businesswoman, however, denied all the allegations, saying that she had been faithful to her husband.

“I have been faithful to my husband since we got married. I am not dating our pastor, he is just a spiritual father to me,’’ she said.

Saraphina said that her husband was hot tempered and was always assaulting her physically.

“My husband was always beating me at any slightest provocation; I had suffered injuries in my eyes on three occasions from frequent beatings from him.

“He once stripped me naked in public and beat the hell out of me. There was a day he beat and pushed me down from the staircase and l lost my two-month-old pregnancy,’’ she said.

The respondent said that her husband also had three children from different women.

In his judgment, the President of the court, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, held that it appeared that the both parties were tired of the marriage as all efforts made to reconcile them had failed.

“Since both parties consented to the dissolution of the marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.

“The court pronounced the marriage between Andrew Ekpenaslim and Saraphina Ekpenaslim, dissolved today, both parties henceforth ceased to be husband and wife.

“Both parties are no longer husband and wife, they are free to go their separate way without any hindrances and molestation,’’ Omilola held.
