Pastor Ends Marriage After Wife Accused Him Of Infidelity

Adekunbi Osho, a 45-year-old pastor who accused his wife of blackmailing him with infidelity, got his wish on Monday when his six-year-old marriage was dissolved by an Igando Customary Court in Lagos.

Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, the court’s President, ruled that the marriage had irreversibly broken down and that the parties should go their own ways.

“Because the petitioner pushed on divorce despite multiple interventions, the court has no choice but to grant him his demand.”

“Today, the court declares pastor Adekunbi Osho and Mrs Rebecca Osho’s marriage to be dissolved.”

“By this declaration, both of you have lost your status as husband and wife.”

“Each of you should go your own way unmolested,” he said, adding that “the court wishes both of you well in your future endeavors.”

Rebecca was told by Koledoye not to go about the petitioner to disgrace him.

On April 6, Adekunbi filed a petition in court to dissolve his marriage, accusing Rebecca of defaming his character.

“My wife is trying to ruin my job by going to my office and accusing me of sleeping with women.”

“She is impeding my ministerial advancement.” Rebecca went to my local church and told the pastors that I was a serial cheater.

“She also sent a letter to my general supervisor, smearing my reputation.”

“Three times, Rebecca has put a halt to my promotion because of her series of reports to the church administration, causing me to stay in the same position,” he stated.

The pastor accused Rebecca of being troublesome.

“She fights me on daily basis, there was a day she attacked me in public and tore my clothes to pieces.

“She once arrested me with the police, claiming I sent assassins to kill her.

“She hates my family; she insults and fights them whenever they come visiting.”

According to him, Rebecca prevents him from carrying or playing with their daughter.

“I only carried the baby during her naming ceremony; the girl is now three years old.”

He had pleaded with the court to terminate the marriage and grant him the custody of their only child.

However, Rebecca, a 36-year-old civil servant, was silent on the allegations.

She said that the pastor was not the biological father of her daughter.

“Adekunbi is not the father of my daughter. I was impregnated by my lover while living and married to my husband.

“He should better not claim the paternity of another man’s child,” Rebecca told the court.
