A 39 year old prophetess, Mrs Olubunmi Jegede, told an Ado-Ekiti Customary Court, that her husband, a prophet, in 2008 committed adultery with five women in their church.
Olubunmi made the statement on Thursday when she testified in a divorce petition filed by her husband, Mr Emmanuel Jegede.
The mother of three children told the court that for two years, the petitioner abandoned them, and that she had caught more women with the petitioner in their parish.
According to Olubunmi, Emmanuel preferred to drink beer to stupor and smoke cigarettes instead of taking good care of his family.
She said, ”I am responsible for the school fees of our second child, Elizabeth, 6, since 2015 to date.”
She urged the court to grant the prayer of the petitioner but that she be given custody of the children.
Earliar, Emmanuel, had pleaded with the court to dissolved the marriage on ground that the respondent was arrogant, lazy, stubborn and unsupportive.
He explained that the respondent was not willing to work to assist him in taking care of the kid’s welfare.
President of the court, Mrs Olayinka Akomolede, observed that the marriage had broken down irretrievably and consequently dissolved the marriage.
Akomolede awarded the custody of the three children to the respondent for proper care.
She also ruled that the petitioner would be paying N2,500 as feeding allowance on each of the three children, beginning on or before Nov. 30 through the court registry.
She said Emmanuel will be responsible for the education of the children at all levels and he is granted unrestricted access to his children between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.
