Deborah Olusola, an angry house wife on Wednesday called on an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court, Agodi in Ibadan to annulled her marriage to her husband Pastor Sunday Olusola, who she accused of deceiving her to marry him through a fake prophecy.
Olusola cited insincerity, infidelity, nagging, and brutality before the court as some of the reason she no longer wanted to stay in the marriage.
In her testimony before the court, the 23-year-old woman, narrated how Olusola approached her and promised to assist her spiritually.
”My lord, he promised to assist me but later told me that God said both of us should become one through marriage.
“I believed the prophesy because I thought it was truly God’s voice and we got married after a few weeks.
“Again, he prophesied that my mother should resign from her place of work and relocate to our matrimonial apartment.
“He said God would kill her if she didn’t obey the purported God’s voice and my mother yielded to the prophecy because she too believed him as a man of God.
“He began showing his true colour immediately I got pregnant, maltreating me, became less concerned about my well-being and brutalised me.
“I passed through hell during the pregnancy of the only child of the marriage.
“His parents too nagged and beat me, and even extended the hatred to my mother by treating her as a slave.
“The worse he did was that I caught him sleeping with his blood sister and threatened to deal with me if I expose him.
“I couldn’t believe my eyes until I read text message conversations between him and his sister on his cell phone which confirmed what I saw.
“My relationship with him in the last one and half years was not friendly and his ways of life didn’t prove him to be a man of God.
“I pray the court to separate us because I can’t cope anymore with the marriage because of his devilish ways of life,” she stated.
Olusola, 28, when asked to defend himself accused the plaintiff of initiating the problem in the marriage added that the accusations against him are simply fabricated.
He told the court that he would not shy away from divorce if that what the plaintiff want, adding that he would abide by the decision made by the court.
The President of court, Chief Mukaila Balogun nullified the marriage and gave the custody of the child to the plaintiff.
Balogun further ordered the respondent to pay N3,500 monthly for the upkeep of the child.
