Pastor Ndubisi told the court that his wife was frustrating him as she starves him of sex and food at will, always coming up with flimsy excuses anytime he wants to make love to her.

In his evidence in chief, Pastor Ndubisi said:

“My wife (Seraphina) starves me of food and sex. She always gives excuses whenever I want to make love to her. Despite all my pleading, she will not allow me; my body is not a firewood or iron rod.

Apart from s*x, she also denies me food; she is a poor cook and hardly cooks. Whenever she does, it is either the food is too salty or watery. If I complain, she will take the food and dispose of it and she will never apologize. I used to buy food to eat or go hungry.”

Apart from the sexual starvation accusation, the pastor also accused his wife of infidelity and having affairs with other men.

“My wife is having an affair. On February 1, 2016, I called my wife with a new SIM I just bought. She never knew I who was calling and asked if it was because my wife was around that I refused to call or visit her.

It was then that I knew that my wife was having an affair. I refused to respond. I waited for her to do the talking and she started calling me sweet names and told me how much she loves and misses me."

"She insisted I should say something; I later revealed myself to her and she was shocked. Before I got home, she has packed out with our three-year-old daughter.

When she did not return for days, I reported at the police station; I also went to the radio and television stations including a newspaper, to place an announcement of a missing person.”

Is sexual starvation enough reason to seek for a divorce?»
