I married another woman because my wife starved me of sex–Pastor

 A 45-year-old pastor, Olusola Opoola, on Tuesday told a Grade ‘C’ Customary Court at  Inanlende, Ibadan, that he married a second wife after his wife, Adeola, persistently denied him sex.

Opoola, who  said his decision to marry a second wife was unfortunate, however, pointed out that he  needed a woman to satisfy his sexual urge.

”My lord, it is unfortunate that I married another wife because it is morally and spiritually wrong to marry more than one wife.

”My wife pushed me to it, I have endured too long and I do not want to commit adultery.

”I agree to a  divorce because she never appreciated all what I have done for her, ’’  he said.

Earlier, Adeola, 36,  who had approached the court for divorce,  accused her  husband of 16 years of snatching the wife of  his evangelist.

She said the respondent  abandoned her and the four children of the marriage because of his new wife.

Adeola also  denied the allegation of refusing him sex.

”He is the one that says I am old and should give another woman a chance,

”He makes life more difficult for me since he married the lady.

”I pray  the court to separate us so that I can live  comfortably,’’ she said.

The president of the court, Chief Ramoh Olafenwa, dissolved the marriage and gave the custody of the four children  to the plaintiff.

Olafenwa directed the respondent  to pay N12,000 monthly for the upkeep of the children.

He also ordered the respondent to be  responsible for the education and other bills of the children.(NAN)
