A 41-year-old motor parts dealer, Mr Oladele Adelakun, has told Akure Customary Court that his wife’s misdemeanour lured him to alcoholism.
The man disclosed this while asking the court to put an end to his 16-year-old marriage with Mrs Kike Adelakun.
According to him, the respondent has been engaging in mischievous behaviours ranging from ritualism to promiscuity.
He said that he caught his wife twice in extra marital activities with a man named Felix which was settled by his pastor.
The complainant said that he was taking alcohol to keep away from tension caused by the respondent. He said that the respondent’s harsh treatment of their three children also caused their constant rift which made the respondent to rain curses on him and tore his clothes severally.
Responding, Kike Adelakun denied other allegations, but confessed that she once had sexual relationship with Felix before her marriage to the complainant.
She said that the complainant packed out three times during the marriage without her notice, but she later found out that he actually went to his mistress house which led to a secret wedding.
The respondent said that her husband’s allegation of not having sexual intercourse with her in the last three years was a lie, citing different instances when the complainant would secretly come to her apartment to make love with her.
Ruling on the case, Chief Rotimi Olusanya, the court’s President, said that peace should be restored to the two parties and adjourned the case till Nov.2 for judgment.Vanguard
