He advised them to go their separate ways and wished them well.

Koledoye ordered Paul to be responsible for the children’s education and general welfare.

Paul had in his application for divorce, said: ”Chinwe made my home uncomfortable for me and my life unbearable.

“She refused to obey my orders but does things in her own way. She also turned all my children against me and she gave out one of my daughters in marriage without my knowledge”.

In her defense, Chinwe, an evangelist, accused her husband of being a flirt.

”My husband sleeps with church members both single and married. He sent me out of his house and brought a married woman home as his wife.

”He defames me by telling people that I was planning to kill him. What do I stand to gain if I kill the father of my seven children? He is lying against me,” she said.

She pleaded with the court not to grant her husband’s prayer for divorce, saying:” I still love him in spite of his adulterous behavior”.
