Wife of a Pastor, Dolapo Michael has told an Oke-Ogbere Customary Court in Ibadan that her husband, Pastor Rotimi Michael wants to dissolve their 11-year-old marriage because her anointing is stronger than his.
Dolapo revealed this in court on Thursday after her husband took her to court seeking for divorce following allegations accusing her of destroying his ministry.
The respondent (Dolapo), a 48 year-old prophetess, who didn’t deny the allegations explained the reasons for her action, testifying that “God had ministered to me that I must marry Pastor Rotimi.
“Rotimi no longer wants to see me because he now knows that my anointing is greater than his.
“Anytime I have a revelation for our congregation in the church, Rotimi, as the church overseer will not want God’s revelation to be shared because he feels that I might be greater than him.
“He prefers to tell lies to the congregation and his attitude is against my calling.
“For two years now, Rotimi has been starving me of sex. This is due to the fact that he has another wife in Lagos State.
“Besides, Rotimi is making desperate moves to terminate my life in another revelation by our son.
“He is currently blackmailing me around that I am a fake prophetess.
“Rotimi lacks any milk of human kindness because he no longer fends for the children and me.
“The land on which his church is built is jointly owned by both of us,’’ Dolapo said.
Meanwhile, her husband, a 51 year-old cleric, Rotimi Michael, who resides at Olubonku-Olodo in Ibadan revealed to the court that his wife had made nonsense of his calling as a minister of God which is inimical to his ministry, hence his decision to end his marriage with her.
Giving his testimony, Pastor Rotimi said, “To say the least my lord, I have for too long tolerated Dolapo’s arrogance, disrespect, stubbornness and stone-heartedness to me, probably due to my silence.
`She doesn’t even take instructions from me; instead, Dolapo consults other pastors around.
“Rather than supporting my ministry, she causes pandemonium that leads to crises in the church.
“In fact, Dolapo keeps nagging and I am completely fed-up with her, ‘’ Rotimi stated.
To aggravate matters, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that most of the witnesses who testified in the case wanted the marriage dissolved for peace to reign.
However, some senior pastors of the church prayed the court to grant a four week grace for them to intervene for amicable settlement.
However, President of the court, Alhaji Suleiman Adeniyi, however, adjourned the case for the last time to March 20 for judgement because he had done it on several occasions without any remedy.
