A Celestial Church priest, David Adebayo on Friday begged a Customary Court sitting in Mapo area of Ibadan to pardon him for impregnating Omolara Ojeyemi, a legal wife of Abiodun Ojeyemi.
Adebayo, who is a resident of Alakuko area of Alagbado in Lagos said Omolara was his concubine and that he had been sleeping with the married woman for the past 12 years.
His words; “My lord, anytime Omolara left her husband in Ibadan, she used to come to meet me in Lagos where we usually have fun. Sometimes, she came after her closing hour in her office and returned to Ibadan the following morning.
“Omolara only told me that she and her husband were no more in good terms even though she had already had two children. I swear… I didn’t intend to destroy her relationship with her husband, she is just my girlfriend.
“The pregnancy in her tommy belongs to me, I was the one that deflowered her during my NYSC days. I followed her into the court to ensure that her union with Abiodun is dissolved today not that I am daring the court’s power,” Adebayo explained.
Adebayo however, apologized to the court for causing so much disharmony in Abiodun’s family and for having unlawful s*xual inter-course with a housewife.
President of the court, Ademola Odunade dissolved the seven year-old marriage between Omolara and Abiodun Ojeyemi and ordered Abiodun to take custody of their two children.
The judge cried out that the society is fast undergoing an unprecedented decay in morality, especially how adultery is ruining many marriages.
“It is so tragic that a man can deliberately impregnate a housewife with children. It has never happened in the history of this court that a concubine will accompany his mistress to the court with the intention of daring us, saying nothing will happen,” the judge said.
