A 50-year-old man of God and the General Overseer of Christ Living Church located in Owo, Ondo State, Pastor Tunde Adekunle, is now a happy man as a Customary Court sitting in Akure, the state capital, has freed him from his wife of 15 years, Agbeke, after he sought a dissolution of their marriage over her penchant for beating and assaulting him.
Pastor begs court to annul 15-yr-old marriage over constant beating by wife
A man of God has had his marriage dissolved over incessant beating by his wife.
Pastor Adekunle, who was weeping openly in court, narrated how his wife had turned him into a punching bag, descending on him at will and making him a laughing stock in public places including his church.
The pastor who told the court that he had to undertake such a step to save his life, said Agbeke was a troublesome person who takes delight in beating up both at home and in public.
He added that his wife was a disgrace to his pastoral calling and ministry, recalling that his wife once tore his cloth into shreds in the presence of his congregation during a church service.
Pastor Adekunle showed the court scars on his body to prove his allegation, saying they were tell-tale signs of his wife's frequent beating.
“There was no more affection existing in our marriage and home again, therefore, I want this court to separate us for me to enjoy peace in life.”
The President of the court, Mrs. Olayinka Falodun, based on the agreement of the pastor's wife to the separation, dissolved the union.
