The complainant revealed that he found love text messages sent to the pastor from his wife's phone.
The complainant, who already has five children with Funmilayo made his case for separation at the Igando Customary Court, Lagos.
“My wife is having an affair with my pastor, I got to know when I did not have credit on my phone and wanted to use her phone to call our pastor to report her for starving my mother of food.
“I picked her phone and I saw on the screen “sent message”. I mistakenly clicked on it and the message opened, I saw several love messages my wife sent and received from our pastor.
“I showed her the messages when she came in, but she begged me, I seized the phone and later confronted our pastor with those text messages, but he told me to do my worst.
“I also caught her with my brother in a hotel in Oyo State; I wanted to ignore them, but I later confronted them so that they will not deny later,” he said.
Okeeyi narrated that several assassination attempts have been made on his life. His survival of those episodes were down to sheer luck and divine grace.
He accused his wife of being behind attacks as she never offers any word of comfort whenever he relates the matter to her.
“In Aug. 20, 2013, I got to the front of my gate, as I honked for my children to open the gate, suddenly three men jumped down from a motorcycle, pointing a gun at me.
“But for the timely intervention of the police, I would have been killed. When I entered my house, I told my wife what happened, but she did not say anything.
“Four months later, while coming from work, three men intercepted me, pointing a gun at me to come down and enter the booth, I complied and they drove me off.
“But luckily for me, my phone rang, one of them picked it, the caller addressed me as pastor and said that I should come to the church early that I will be ministering, but I am not a pastor.
“One of the guys said that they should not kill me that I am a pastor; that in the bible God said that they should not touch his anointed or do his prophet harm.
“After a hot argument among them, they stopped the car, stripped me naked and absconded with my car.
“A good Samaritan gave me clothes to wear. When I got home, I told my wife again about the incident, but she said nothing.
“That same 2013, my only three buses that plied Port-Harcourt, Akure and Abeokuta were involved in accident and were condemned, I again informed my wife, but no response from her,” he added.
In her defense, Funmilayo told the court that the text messages found on her phone were forged. She stated that she has no idea how they got into the device.
According to her, she has been the victim of assault and violent attacks from her husband's family.
Funmilayo recalled an incident when she was beaten to a critical state while she was pregnant with her fifth child.
She appealed to the court not to consider her husband's request for divorce as she was still in love with him.
For further hearing, Court President, Adegboyega Omilola, adjourned the case to November 29, 2016.
