Court dissolves pastor's 15-year-old marriage over wife's constant nagging

An Akure Customary Court on Monday dissolved a pastor’s 15-year-old marriage, citing wife’s constant nagging.
The President of the court, Mrs Olayinka Falodun, who made the pronouncement, said the evidences presented by both parties showed that there was no more love between them.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the husband, Pastor Tunde Adekunle, had approached the court seeking the dissolution of the 15-year-old marriage to Agbeke, blessed with four children.
He accused her of nagging and assault.
Adekunle, the founder of Christ Living Church, Owo, Ondo State, told the court that some of the scars on his body were caused by the constant fisticuffs between them.
The court’s president, however, said the husband had confessed of his inability to perform his fatherly and marital responsibilities to the family.
She ordered the petitioner to pay a sum of N10,000 monthly upkeep for the children through the court’s registry.

Falodun, however, granted the custody of the children to the respondent with effect from Sept. 30.
She also directed that the man should continue to pay the school fees of the children.
In his defence, Adekunle said the estranged wife was a "disgrace to his pastoral calling.’’
He accused his wife of tearing his clothes in front of the congregation while he was preaching.
Agbeke, in her response, denied the allegations, but said that she was ready for the dissolution of the marriage.
