A 45-year-old pastor, Olusola Opoola, on Tuesday told a Grade ‘C’ Customary Court , Ibadan that he married another wife because he needed to satisfy his sexual urge.
Opoola, accused of snatching his second wife from an evangelist said he remarried after his wife persistently denied him of sex.
He told the court, ”My lord, it is unfortunate that I married another wife because it is morally and spiritually wrong to marry more than one wife.
”My wife pushed me to it, I have endured too long and I do not want to commit adultery. I agree to a divorce because she never appreciated all what I have done for her, ’’ he said.
His enstranged wife, Adeola, 36, begged the court for divorce, accusing her husband of abandoning her and the four children of the marriage because of his new wife.
She also denied the allegation of refusing him sex.
”He is the one that says I am old and should give another woman a chance,He makes life more difficult for me since he married the lady.
”I pray the court to separate us so that I can live comfortably,’’ she said.
The president of the court, Chief Ramoh Olafenwa, in his ruling dissolved the marriage and gave the custody of the four children to the plaintiff.
Olafenwa instructed the respondent to pay N12,000 monthly for the upkeep of the children, education and other bills.
