A Lagos prophet, Akinyemi Ilesanmi has obviously had enough of his 10-year-old marriage, so he approached an Agege Customary Court with a divorce suit on the grounds that his wife, Comfort is allegedly disturbing his ministry.
The complainant alleged that his wife is quarrelsome and also constituting a threat to his life, adding that he had lost his love and peace of mind.
Speaking at the court session on Thursday, June 23, 2016, Akinyemi said: “l have not been at peace since l got married to my wife, she is so quarrelsome.
“I am a prophet of God, but since l married her, she has been disturbing my ministry work.
“Whenever am on long fasting, she makes me break it with her bad attitude, ‘my wife is a devil’ even those in my neighbourhood calls her a witch.
“A fake prophet my wife introduced to me prophesied that she is my wife and we got married under two weeks of meeting ourselves.
“She is disturbing my work of God and due to her troublesome ways, l have developed high blood pressure.
“My Lord, I want an end to this marriage because I cannot cope with my wife’s troubles anymore.”
A mild drama however ensued in the court when the defendant bursted into hot tears while trying to deny the allegations levelled against her by her husband.
She disclosed her willingness to continue with the marriage and implored the court to give her time to pray for her husband.
After listening to both parties, the President of the court, Mr Philip Williams, called the the duo into his chamber for an Alternative Dispute Resolution.
He adjourned the case until July 28 for the report of settlement or continuation of hearing.
