The wife of a lecturer in Lagos State University, LASU, Suraju Oyekunle, reportedly dumped her husband and fell in love with one Mr Alimi, a bricklayer in the Igando area of the state.
Kafayat, 36, is even pregnant for her newly found love and she said she would love to spend the rest of her life with him.
According to the report, Kafayat moved out of her matrimonial home in October when her husband traveled, and then moved in with the 34-year-old bricklayer.
She was said to have taken along with her, a 12-year-old son she had for her husband, according to reports.
The bricklayer was arrested by the police after the lecturer reported the incident at the station in his bid to salvage his 13-year-old marriage.
Alimi was arraigned before Chief Magistrate, Mrs. O. A Layinka at an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court over the weekend for conduct likely to cause breach of peace, to which he pleaded not guilty.
However, Kafayat swore that she would do everything within her powers to ensure that Alimi is set free.
Kafayat alleged that she got fed up with the union because her husband was not taking good care of her and they have been unable to have another child.
She added that she became pregnant for her lover few months after they met, and that with him, she was now living in peace.
“He is better off than my husband in everything and my family supports my relationship with him,” she stated.
The chief magistrate reportedly granted him bail in the sum of N25, 000, ordering that he be remanded in prison custody until he meets the bail conditions.
The presiding magistrate adjourned the matter until December 12 for trial.
