Pastor ends 15-year marriage over constant beating by his wife

 

Pastor Tunde Adekunle of the Christ Living Church in Owo, Ondo State has got his wish to dissolve his 15 year marriage to his wife, Mrs. Abeke Adekunle for constantly beating him and bringing him to ridicule in public.

Pastor Adekunle, who is the Founder of the church, ex­plained that his wife had turned him into a laughing stock at public places in­cluding his church, saying that his wife was fond of making jest of him. And his plea was granted by the Customary court.

Adekunle  had  told the court that his wife was a troublesome person and that the woman was fond of beating him over any slight domestic issue both at home and in the church even showing the open court some scars on his body as proof his allegation.

The 50 year old pas­tor and father of four told the court that “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.”

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.The respon­dent denied the allegations but agreed to part with the plaintiff for peace to reign.

The President of the court, Mrs. Olayinka Falo­dun while dissolving the 15 year-old marriage, said the evidence presented before the court by the two parties indicated that there was no more affection existing in the union.She hit the gavel and granted their wish to seek happiness elsewhere.
