On Wednesday, a mother of four Taiwo Oluwanisola filed to divorce her husband of 18 years over an alleged infidelity.
The 42-year-old woman narrated at an Igando Customary Court in Lagos State how she saw a heartbreaking message her friend sent to her husband Olajide Oluwanisola begging him to return her pant, Vanguard reports.
“My husband is dating my married friend and I discovered this when I was with his cell phone. Then, a Whatsapp message entered with my friend’s picture appearing on the screen begging my husband to return her pant.
“I showed my husband the message; he confessed that he was having an affair with her that I should forgive him. I also went to my friend’s house to confront her for having an affair with my husband.
“She also begged me that I should not let her husband hear about it and promised to end the relationship with my husband,” Mrs Oluwanisola testified.

She continues alleging that her husband had developed the habit of threatening to kill her with dangerous weapons at the slightest provocation.
“My husband who used to beat me up using dangerous weapons also threatened to kill me.
“Anytime I received a call, my husband would demand for my cell phone to know if it were a man that called; and if I refused to surrender it to him, he would beat the hell out of me.
“He once attacked me on the bed with a cutlass threatening to machete me into pieces but I escaped by the whiskers,” she said.
The petitioner added that it’s been over 3 years her husband eats food prepared by her at home.
She, therefore, pleaded with the court to grant her application for divorce, saying she no longer loved her husband.
Olajide, who denied her wife’s allegation of infidelity, accused Taiwo of having an extra-marital affair with another man.
Olajide, 49, who works as a clearing-agent said: “My wife is having affair with a man, I have caught them severally, and they always meet around 11p.m. in the darkness behind a transformer.
“She and her lover arrested me on two occasions, accusing me of always calling her lover’s cell phone and threatening his life which I know nothing about.”
He said he stopped eating foods prepared by his wife because she was fond of abusing him before serving him.
He, however, begged the court to grant his wife’s application for divorce, saying he was also fed up with the marriage.
Mr Adegboyega Omilola, the court president adjourned the case to August 9th, 2016, ordering each of the couple to come along with three family members at the next adjourned date for possible mediation.
