A Lagos based Pastor, Omotilewa Oke, has demanded the dissolution of marriage with his wife, Shola, over irreconcilable issues.
Oke made the demand on Monday before a judge at Igando Customary Court, Lagos State.
He said, “She fights me every day and also fights with neighbors over minor issues to the extent that people in our area know us for frequent fighting.
“I knew that something was wrong and I asked her to go for deliverance. When she refused, I stopped sleeping with her and eating her food because I don’t want any calamity to befall me.’’
Oke, who has been married to shola for six years and has two children, narrated an incident where his wife said she was going to Ekiti to collect her school certificate and will spend a night in her aunt’s place, adding that he later called to speak to the said aunty but Shola ended the call and switched off her phone which raised his suspicion.
“Shola has gone to many places, where she passed the night without my permission.’’ He added.
Oke beckoned on the court to terminate the union, stating he was no longer interested.
Speaking on the issue, 37-year-old Shola, denied all allegations leveled against her, adding that her husband was ungrateful.
“After I married my husband, I discovered that he does not have an Ordinary National Diploma as he made me believe. He did not even finish secondary school but I decided to stay in the marriage.” She said.
She however agreed to the dissolution of the marriage.
Chief Judge, Adeniyi Koledoye, said “Since both parties consented to the dissolution, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.
“The court hereby pronounces the marriage between Pastor Omotilewa Oke and Mrs Shola Oke dissolved today; both of you henceforth cease to be husband and wife.
“Each of you should go on his or her separate way unmolested; the court wishes both of you well in your future endeavours.
“The two children, who are minors, should be in their mother’s custody, while the petitioner must be paying N10, 000 monthly for their feeding and be responsible for their education and general welfare.’’ The judge said.
