Customary Court Restores A Couple’s 10 Year Old Marriage On The Brink Of Divorce

On Wednesday, an Agege Customary Court in Lagos reconciled a couple, Mr Akinyemi Ilesanmi and his wife, Comfort, whose 10-year-old marriage was on the brink of divorce.

Vanguard reports that Akinyemi, a prophet, who resides at Akute Area of Ogun state, dragged his wife to court for disturbing his ministry with her bad attitude.

On June, 20th, he had filed a divorce suit on the grounds that there was no love between him and his wife and an alleged threat to his life. He also alleged that his wife was a ‘witch’.

“I have not been at peace since l got married to my wife, she is so quarrelsome. I am a prophet of God, but since l married her, she has been disturbing my ministry work. Whenever l am fasting, she forces me to break it due to her bad attitude. ‘My wife is a devil,’ even those in my neighbourhood call her a witch,” he alleged.

According to him, the marriage which was contracted in 2006 has not produced any child.

“We got married under two weeks of meeting ourselves following a fake prophet my wife introduced to me while we were courting. He prophesied then to me that she was my wife. Due to her troublesome ways, l have now developed high blood pressure.

“My lord, I want an end to this marriage because I cannot cope with my wife’s troubles anymore. Please, separate us, so that l can have a rest of mind,’’ the petitioner said.

Comfort, on the other hand, pleaded for reconciliation. She, however, denied all the allegations leveled against her by her husband.

She told the court: “ I am still interested in the marriage. I want this court to save my marriage because I do not want to marry another husband. I still love him.”

However, after the Court’s President, Mr Philip Williams, heard from both parties, he pleaded on the pair embrace peace and love in their marriage and be law abiding.

His intervention and that of the couple’s families helped to resolve their differences and reconcile them.
