A man identified as Saheed on Wednesday accused his wife, Kafayat, of sleeping with his younger brother at different times.
The Ibadan-based businessman told a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan that the act had caused disharmony in his extended family.
He stated this while responding to a divorce suit filed by his wife before the court presided over by Chief Ademola Odunade.
Saheed also questioned if the two children giving birth to by his wife belongs to him.
“The real reason I consented to Kafayat’s request for dissolution of our marriage is that she is evil and has torn my extended family apart because of her waywardness.”
“Anytime I went on my business trip, family members, especially my dad, usually catch Kafayat sleeping with my immediate younger brother; despite his warning, Kafayat kept luring my brother into unholy romance.”
The businessman noted that his father had threatened to disown him if he refuses to send her away.
He further stated that despite the incident he has never failed to be responsible to the two children except that he no longer lives with his wife.
Saheed added that his wife repeatedly cursed him, thereby causing him a setback. He noted that he had pleaded with his wife to give her the custody of their kids but she refused.
Kafayat while speaking in the court claimed that her husband is irresponsible.
“We stopped living together since 12 years ago, and Saheed does not make any provision for our children.”
“In fact, the second child cannot recognise him either as a father or anything because she had never sighted him.”
She claimed that the husband requested for their first child but she refused because he would not send him to school.
Kafayat said even when their child was dying of sickness in the University Teaching Hospital, Ibadan, her husband did nothing about it.
She, however, did not respond to the allegation of sleeping with her brother-in-law.
In his ruling, Odunade directed the duo to bring their relatives and their two children in court.
He adjourned the case until December 17 for judgment, urging that they should maintain the peace.
