Pastor, 45, says first wife is too old, takes another
A 45-year-old pastor, Olusola Opoola, has told a Grade ‘C’ Customary Court at Inanlende, Ibadan, Oyo State that he married a second wife after his wife, Adeola, persistently denied him s3x.
Opoola, who said his decision to marry a second wife was unfortunate, however, pointed out that he needed a woman to satisfy his s3xual urge.
”My lord, it is unfortunate that I married another wife because it is morally and spiritually wrong to marry more than one wife.
”My wife pushed me to it, I have endured too long and I do not want to commit adultery.
”I agree to divorce because she never appreciated all I have done for her, ’’ he said.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Adeola who had earlier approached the court for divorce, accused her husband of 16 years of snatching the wife of his evangelist.
She said the respondent abandoned her and the four children in their marriage because of his new wife.
Adeola also denied the allegation of refusing him s3x.
”He is the one that says I am old and should give another woman a chance,
”He makes life more difficult for me since he married the lady.
”I pray the court to separate us so that I can live in peace, “she said.
The court president, Chief Ramoh Olafenwa, dissolved their marriage and gave custody of the four children to the plaintiff.
Olafenwa directed the respondent to pay N12, 000 monthly for the upkeep of their children.
He also ordered the respondent to be responsible for their children’s education and healthcare.
