Divorce: He used false prophecy to marry me, says woman

A housewife, Deborah Olusola , on Wednesday urged an Idi- Ogungun Customary Court , Agodi in Ibadan , that her husband , Pastor Sunday Olusola , lured her into marriage with false prophecy .

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Deborah had approached the court seeking for dissolution of her 18 months union with the pastor over insincerity , infidelity , nagging , and brutality .

In her testimony before the court , the 23 - year- old woman, narrated how Olusola approached her and promised to assist her spiritually .

” My lord , he promised to assist me but later told me that God said both of us should become one through marriage .

“ I believed the prophesy because I thought it was truly God ’s voice and we got married after a few weeks .

“ Again, he prophesied that my mother should resign from her place of work and relocate to our matrimonial apartment .
“ He said God would kill her if she didn ’t obey the purported God ’ s voice and my mother yielded to the prophecy because she too believed him as a man of God .

“ He began showing his true colour immediately I got pregnant, maltreating me , became less concerned about my well-being and brutalised me .

“ I passed through hell during the pregnancy of the only child of the marriage .

“ His parents too nagged and beat me, and even extended the hatred to my mother by treating her as a slave .

“ The worse he did was that I caught him sleeping with his blood sister and threatened to deal with me if I expose him .
“ I couldn ’ t believe my eyes until I read text message conversations between him and his sister on his cell phone which confirmed what I saw .

“ My relationship with him in the last one and half years was not friendly and his ways of life didn’t prove him to be a man of God .

“ I pray the court to separate us because I can’ t cope anymore with the marriage because of his devilish ways of life ,” she stated .

In his defence , Olusola , 28 , denied all the allegations and blamed the plaintiff for the break -up.

He urged the court to uphold the divorce request of his wife and pledged to abide with the judgment of the court .

Chief Mukaila Balogun , the President of the court , dissolved the marriage and gave the custody of the child to the plaintiff .

Balogun further ordered the respondent to pay N 3 ,500 monthly for the upkeep of the child.
