Pastor accuses wife of cheating with another
A clergyman, Joel Banimore, has sought the
dissolution of his 19-year-old marriage to his
wife, Mary, over an alleged infidelity. Bamimore
dragged his wife before a Mapo Customary Court
in Ibadan yesterday, alleging that she capitalised
on his disability to cheat on him.
Bamimore said he had once caught Mary in a
compromising position with another man. He
said: “I have forgiven Mary’s adulterous
behaviour before. I can no longer tolerate it
because I am a pastor and for the sake of my
“On a number of occasions, Mary has hidden
under the guise of going to our senior pastor’s
home to assist him fetch water and wash his
clothes. In the pastor’s home one day, I met both
of them in a compromising position and my initial
fear was confirmed.”
Mary, who now lives in Oyo Town, denied the
allegations but gave her consent for divorce. She
told the court that her greatest mistake in life was
her decision to marry Bamimore, in spite of her
parents’ warning.
“I am not an adulterer, I have lived with
Bamimore with all sincerity and honesty. The
cleric he referred to as my lover is a real man of
God. In fact, he usually gives my husband money
to feed his family. It is true that I usually assist
the man’s family with their chores. It has become
my husband’s way of life to accuse me of
adultery and embarrass me in public, stripping me
Unclad and inflicting injuries on me,” she said.
President of the court, Ademola Odunade, after
hearing the testimonies, ordered them to produce
more evidence to support their arguments.
Odunade said Bamimore was not being fair to his
wife. The case was then adjourned till October 30
for continuation of hearing.
