My wife is a fake prophetess, adulteress, divorce seeking man tells court



A Mapo Customary Court on Monday, in Ibadan, dissolved a marriage of 22 years; and advised married couples to fear God and uphold the sanctity of matrimony.

President of the court, Chief Ademola Odunade, gave the admonition while delivering his verdict in a case instituted by a commercial driver, Abiodun Ganiyu, for the dissolution of his marriage to Mojisola, whom he accused of infidelity and alcoholism.

In his judgment, Odunade lamented the high level of immorality in the society, calling on wives and husbands to fear God and respect relationships.

He dissolved the union and granted custody of the six children to Ganiyu.

The Arbitrator directed the petitioner to pay N5, 000 to Mojisola to enable her pack out of his home.

During the proceedings, the petitioner stated that he was fed up with his wife’s adulterous lifestyle, which had subjected him to ridicule in their neighbourhood.

The petitioner, who lives at Agege area in Lagos state, said that life had not been the same for the past 13 years since his wife started living “a wanton lifestyle’’.

“Firstly, Mojisola informed me that she had become born again and had been ordained a prophetess in her Church.

“My lord, Mojisola sometimes told me that she had been in a trance for 10 days and therefore could not come home; but she would return home mostly heavily drunk.

“When I could no longer bear the agony, I reported her to her parents to caution her, but it was all to no avail.

“When I saw that her waywardness was becoming something else, I advised her to buy her beer to drink at home; instead, Mojisola took offence by my advice and would leave home for three to five weeks.

“Though, we both agreed to do family planning for birth control, she however, she saw it as an opportunity to sleep about with other men.

“Worst still, she introduced some of her lovers to me, I am frustrated, please, separate us,” Ganiyu pleaded with the court.

The respondent, who now lives at Apata area in Ibadan, did not deny any of the allegations leveled against her.

However, Mojisola, who earns a living as a food vendor, said that life would be meaningless to her if the court dissolved her union.

“I admit to all the allegations against me, but there is no where I can go at this stage, after six children.

“I take beer everyday because I do not want to kill myself; and I frequently leave home for a month or more.

“Also, I wooed a man to sleep with me so as to stimulate my sexual urge; and Abiodun himself knows the man, because I introduced them.

“Abiodun does not give me sexual satisfaction because he uses condom with me,” Mojisola explained.

Also commenting, a relative of the stranded patient, Habibu Malumfashi, disclosed that Salisu left the county through the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport, after an arrangement with an Egyptian hospital for medical treatment.

Malumfashi said his brother and other stranded Nigerians in Egypt were hassled by the daily financial challenges.

”Many of the stranded persons are broke and incurred high hotel and hospital bills due to the prolonged stay in a foreign land,” he said.

NAN recalled that the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama had earlier said about 4, 000 Nigerians stranded abroad due to COVID-19 pandemic, are willing to return home.

The government had so far repatriated hundreds of Nigerians stranded in the U.S. and other countries.

COVID-19: Ban on public gathering still in force- Oyo Govt



Oyo State Government says it has not lifted the ban on public gathering in the state.

Mr Jide Ajani, the Special Adviser to Gov. Seyi Makinde on Media, made this known to newsmen in Ibadan on Thursday.

Ajani said: “There is a fake press statement presently in circulation, referencing some Executive Orders allegedly issued by the Gov. Makinde that the state was reopened.

“This fake news is not from Gov. Makinde’s Media Office, and the so-called Executive Orders are false.

“Being a member of Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force, I can confirm that no such decisions has been taken.

“Therefore, as of today, there is no lifting of the ban on public gatherings, including Churches and Mosques.

“Please, treat the statement as FAKE NEWS and another handiwork of enemies of the state.”

According to him, prior to this latest evil scheme, the Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force’s daily update flyer had been cloned and used to post incorrect data.

“On another occasion, they had posted pictures on social media depicting outbreak of violence in Oyo State when the Park Management System was kickstarted.

“Individuals, who can go to this extreme, vile and vicious extent, can do anything.

“Members of the public are please advised to ignore the statement,” he said.
