The pastor, Mr. Segun Adeyinka, has appealed to an Alimosho Customary Court in Lagos state, to dissolve his marriage to his wife, Mrs. Folake Adeyinka, because of her penchant for disgracing him in front of his church members.

Mr Adeyinka revealed to the court that Folake, mother to their four kids, is fond of embarrassing him in public over money.

He also alleges that Folake refuses to believe him whenever he tells her he does not have money, adding that he no longer loved his wife.

“My wife usually disgraces me in public and in my church. She has made many church members to leave the church. She doesn’t want to see people around me. She is making people to run away from me. If my church members give me something, she believes she must have a share of it. We always fight. My wife also doesn’t want to hear that I don’t have money.

"Anytime I tell her that I don’t have money, she would start fighting me. I don’t earn salary. It is what my church members give to me that we share at home. Still, she is not satisfied.”

Mr Adeyinka also urged the court to give him custody of their four children, as part of the divorce settlement.

In response to the allegations leveled against her by her husband, Mrs Folake disclosed that she still loved her husband and did not want their marriage dissolved.

“I’ll not disgrace him anymore in the public or in church. My husband and I have separated for two years now. He moved his things gradually out of our home until nothing remains.”

It is unknown if the divorce was granted to Mr Adeyinka.
