54-year-old Pastor Joshua Ibeneme has petitioned his wife, Uzoamaka for sex starvation, saying “she gives it freely to male members of his church.”
Ibeneme on Wednesday begged an Igando Customary Court in Lagos to end his 21-year-old marriage with Uzoamaka saying his wife was having extramarital affairs with two male members of his church.
According to the clergyman, his wife was sleeping with a Deacon and a Bishop in his church. Ibeneme said,“my wife had sexual affair with two of my church members, a deacon and a bishop. Both were boasting telling my other members that they slept with my wife because she enticed them. Whenever I return from a trip, my last born always tells me that men came to pick and drop my wife. Even God told me to divorce her or else she will destroy my ministry.”
The petitioner stressed that for five years, his wife has refused to have sex with him, adding that Uzoamaka gives it freely to the church members. Ibeneme further lamented how his wife was fond of mocking him in public places over his sex performance.
Uzomaka, a 45-year-old teacher, said she starved her husband of sex because she doesn’t like it. According to Uzomaka, her husband became sexually inactive five years ago. The court president, Akin Akinniyi, however, urged the couple to maintain peace and adjourned the case to May 10 for judgment
