Pastor Olawoyin of a new generation church has told the court customary court sighted in Mapo, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital that he always prostrate to his wife before he would be given the chance to make love to her.
Mrs Olawoyin told the court that despite her tight schedule, she always ensured she found time for home affairs with her husband, contrary to what her husband, pastor Segun Olawoyin, had told the court about their sex life.
The pastor also alleged that she had created crisis in the church, which, he said, made many people to stop attending services.
Funmilayo, a mother of four, while denying other allegations, told the court it was true that she told her husband he would “regret his life for being lazy” because, to her, he was relying on only money that came into the church through the church members instead of starting his own business.
She said she was amazed at what she alleged was the relationship between her husband and a friend of hers who was also a church member, who she said is the new wife of her husband.
“We have been married for the past 21 years. I don’t want to leave him. We never fought until a woman he has married now started coming to our church. It is true I am always busy, but I never stopped him whenever it was time for sex,” she said.
The president of the court, Chief Ademola Odunade, held that since the man was adamant about dissolving the marriage, he would advise Funmilayo to concentrate on her business.
Odunade said the three years period during which the couple separated before the husband sought for divorce and the wife was begging for reconciliation had created a vacuum in the marriage, and held it was advisable to dissolve the marriage to avoid further crisis.
He ordered that the husband should take possession of their four children since they were old enough to take care of themselves, but asked their father to ensure he cares for them.
