My adulterous wife aborted another man’s child in my house – Man tells court


A 39-year-old mechanic, Olayiwola Olarewaju, has pleaded with an Ado-Ekiti Customary Court to dissolve his 7 year old marriage to Yetunde Olarewaju over allegation of adultery and assault.

Olarewaju, 39, and a resident of Omisanjana Street, Ado-Ekiti, had asked the court to dissolve his 7-year-old marriage with Yetunde, over allegation of adultery and assault.

He said although no official marital rites were done to consummate the union, the marriage was blessed with three children.

The petitioner told the court that he had in 2013, sued ‎her, because she aborted a pregnancy she had for another man while they lived together, adding that the intervention of family members compelled him to withdraw the matter from court.

He said, ”on Dec.25, 2‎017, Yetunde left the house with our two children in the pretext of going to collect money from one of her debtors in Oke-Ila Street. she only returned home the next day.

“She claimed she and our two children slept in her uncle’s house, who lives at Oke-ila Street,’’ he said.

According to him, his elder sister traced the movement of the respondent to a particular man’s house.

The petitioner further said apart from being adulterous, the respondent was troublesome.

Olarewaju prayed the court to dissolve the union, adding that the court should grant him custody of his three children to enable him take good care of them.

However, the respondent, Yetunde , 33, a tailor, and a resident ‎of Omisanjana Street, Ado-Ekiti, denied all the allegations levelled against her.

She told the court that on Dec.25, 2017, her debtor actually delayed her and in the process, the battery of her phone went flat.

According to her, the incident unfortunately compelled her to sleep in her uncle’s house.

Yetunde said she could not get a motorcycle or taxi to bring her home around 10p.m.

She, therefore prayed the court to award the custody of her three‎ children to her, if the petitioner insisted that the court should dissolve their union.

The President of the Court, Mrs Olayinka Akomolede, adjourned the case until March 8 for hearing.
