Pastor’s wife loses marriage for sleeping with church members
Wife of a pastor, Mrs. Uzoamaka Ibeneme, yesterday, lost her 21-year-old marriage, when an Igando Customary Court in Lagos dissolved the union on grounds of adultery.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the court President, Mr. Akin Akinniyi, who delivered the judgment, said the petitioner, Pastor Joshua Ibeneme, was adamant, in spite of the mediation by the court and family intervention.
“Since the petitioner insisted on divorce after several interventions, the court is, therefore, left with no option but to grant him his wish and pronounce the union dissolved.
“The court hereby pronounces the marriage between Pastor Joshua Ibeneme and Mrs. Uzoamaka Ibeneme dissolved today.
“Both of you will henceforth cease to be husband and wife, each of you should go on his or her separate ways unmolested.
“The court wishes both of you well in your future endeavour.
“Any squabble between both you from now on shall be treated as criminal and any violation of this judgment will be regarded as contempt of court and will attract imprisonment without option of fine,” Akinniyi ruled.
Earlier, the 53-year-old pastor had approached the court to end his marriage to his wife, who he said, was messing around with his church members.
“My wife had sexual affair with two of my church members, a deacon and a bishop. Both of them were telling my other members that they slept with my wife because she enticed them.
