Matthew Olumide, a Nigerian pastor who resides in Ibadan, Oyo state, is set to dissolve his marriage with, Oluyemisi over her alleged attempt to damage his manhood.
“Oluyemisi exposed me to public ridicule when she tore my clothes, including my underwear and compressed my testicles. I spent several weeks in the hospital and when I returned, she warned me not to receive visitors if I cherished my life. She falsely accused me of having extra-marital affair with my church secretary’’ he prayed a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.
Olumide further blamed his wife for his misfortunes.
According to him, his church had more than 50 members, but his congregation had dwindled to just a few following his wife’s domineering attitude.
“She doesn’t prepare food for me and the children anymore. Rather than rest after evangelising, I now take up the responsibility of cooking and looking after the welfare of the children,” he stated.
On the other hand, Oluyemisi told the court her husband and his people were always beating her.
“He had married someone before me, and they are still seeing each other. He even invites her to our vigils. He asked me not to work and yet, he doesn’t take care of me,’’ she stated in her defense.
The court president, Ezekiel Ogundipe, adjourned the case till June 9 and ordered that the couple bring along their relatives.
