A 50-year-old pastor, Tunde Adekunle has dragged his wife, Agbeke Adekunle before a customary court in Akure, the Ondo state capital over allegations of public assault.

According to Pastor Adekunle, the founder of the Christ Living Church in Owo, his wife was very troublesome, Daily Sun reports.

He told the court that his wife beats him at the slightest provocation even in public places.

The father of four disclosed that his wife had once torn his cloths into shreds in the presence of his con­gregation during a church service.

Adekunle accused his wife of being responsible for the scars on his body, saying she had turned him into a laughing stock everywhere, even in church

The pastor added that his wife was a disgrace to his pas­toral calling and ministry.

“There was no more affection existing in our marriage and home again, therefore; I want this court to separate us for me to enjoy peace in life,” he told the court.

Adekunle begged the court to dissolve his 15 year old marriage.

In response, his wife denied the allegations but said she was ready to ways with her husband for peace to reign.

Presiding over the case, Olayinka Falo­dun said evidences before the court showed that both parties were no more interested in the marriage.

Falodun therefore, dissolved the 15 year old marriage between the pastor and his wife.

Though there are no available statistics on the rate of divorce in Nigeria, court records seem to suggest that it is on the increase. The Nigerian society frowns at divorce which is why some couples stick together even when there is nothing left in the marriage.

Last month, a customary court in Ado-Ekiti dissolved the 26-year-old marriage between one James Kayode Oguntuase, and his wife, Felicia, over sexual deprivation.
