A truck driver, Abiodun Adeyanju yesterday opened can of worms at a customary court sitting in Akure when he accused his wife, Mrs. Opeyemi Adeyanju, of being pregnant for two different men while still in relationship with him.
Reacting to his wife petition to dissolve their 12-year old marriage at the court, Adeyanju said his wife was a known symbol of mess in his neighborhood because of her promiscuity, adding that his wife is pregnant for yet another man at the moment.
According to him, this is not her first time. He told the court that while still in courtship, his wife was pregnant for another man, but he still married her because he loved her.
He said he recently discovered that his wife was pregnant again for another man, whose identity she refused to disclose. “I offered to render her some relief out of compassion, I allowed her to live with me in my house, and our relationship subsequently led to marriage.
He is wife in defense told the court that the respondent was fond of beating her at the slightest provocation. “He usually stays away from home, without considering my welfare and that of our two children.”
Opeyemi said she could no longer cope with the pains in the marriage.
The president of the court, Chief Rotimi Olusanya, told the petitioner not to misuse the opportunity she had, saying, “rarely could anyone cater for another man’s pregnancy’’.
While adjourning the case, Chief Olusanya told the couple to settle the misunderstanding between them because of the children, but that if they still insist on going their separate ways, the court will decided at their next appearance.
