3rd February, 2011
For failing to satisfy his sexual desires, a Pastor with the Mountain Of Fire and Miracles Ministries,(MFM) Olusegun Gbadamosi, yesterday asked an Ikeja High Court to dissolve his 12 year-old marriage. He is married to Anthonia.
Gbadamosi had approached the court presided over by Justice Joseph Oyewole specifically seeking for the dissolution of his marriage on grounds of abandonment
He told the court that the marriage, which was solemnised on April 18, 1998 had failed to produce any children despite several attempts which included the IVF (Invitro Uterine Fertilisation) process.
The 40-year old pastor said after series of tests it was discovered that his wife had fibroid, a situation which made her to become a completely different person.
â€œShe became aggressive, hostile and confrontational despite all my pleas. She banned sex between both of us forever,â€ the petitioner said.
He further told the court that his 44-year old wife moved out of their matrimonial home on June 6, 2009 while he was away on a church programme.
Gbadamosi said: â€œWhen I came back, I was very shocked because she never divulged the new place of her abode.
â€œI sought for her, went to her office, knelt down for her publicly and begged her to return home because God can still do it.â€
He alleged that his wife told him she left their marriage to seek for a child elsewhere because she was told to do so by God.
The petitioner therefore asked the court to dissolve the marriage because his wife has moved on with her life.
The case was adjourned till 2 March 2011 for cross-examination and defence.
