Just four months pregnant, a housewife was caught flirting and in sexual bout with her former boyfriend six years into her marriage.
The blizzard act of infidelity occurred in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, reports Persecondnews.
According to a muslim cleric, Abdulrasheed Olalere, he was devastated when he caught his wife, Mariam sleeping with another man with her pregnancy.
Outraged by the adulterous behaviour,
Olalere had approached the court, seeking the dissolution of the union at Mapo Customary Court in the ancient metropolitan city.
Worst still, Mariam, also attempted to elope with her lover.
He told the court: “I caught Mariam in bed sleeping with another man when she was just four months pregnant.
”I was angry with her but we settled the matter. The man also laid claims to the baby. But after medical reports, revealed that the date given by the man proved him wrong about the date of the pregnancy, I accepted her back.
“My lord, I caught her trying to elope with that same man. Mariam is wayward.”
The cleric hubby said after several interventions from people, he accepted her back and things started going on “smoothly” between them until his wife went back to her vomit.
Mariam in her defence, said her husband was irresponsible and uncaring but did not deny her adulterous relationship with her ex-boy friend and how she attempted to bolt with him.
While dissolving the marriage, the court’s President, Chief Ademola Odunade said he decided to sever the relationship in the interest of peace, noting that the marriage was initially not built on a solid foundation of love and trust.
He awarded the custody of the child to Mariam and directed Olalere to pay N5,000 monthly to her for the child’s upkeep.
