A truck driver in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital Southwest Nigeria, has cried out over an amorous affair between his wife, Mufuli, and their landlord.

The driver, Azeez Hakeem, on Tuesday, disclosed this to an Ile-Tuntun Customary Court in Ibadan, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.  

He said this while reacting to his wife’s allegation of battery before Chief Henry Agbaje, the President of the court.

According to Hakeem, who resides at Popo Yemoja area of the city, confusion came when his accused wife was pregnant with their second child, and their landlord claimed the pregnancy was his.

Here’s how he put it: “After the child was born, our landlord came to my parents’ house, insisting on being the one to name the child. We resolved this issue, but she still didn’t desist from her promiscuous attitude. She’s usually not concerned about the children’s dinner, as she returns home very late, with the excuse of going to pray in the mosque. Even after she left the house, I still rented her another apartment and took care of the kids,”

Hakeem told the court that his younger brother once called him on phone to inform him of his wife’s newfound lover.

“I confirmed this to be true when I went to her house, but I did nothing about it,” he said.

Earlier, the plaintiff had informed the court that her husband was in the habit of beating her, even in front of the children.

Mufuli claimed that the serial beating forced her to leave her matrimonial home.

“I refused to leave him against the advice of our family members and friends, choosing rather to endure the battery because I didn’t want to remarry. However, when the beating became unbearable, I left the house in 2016.

“I then started dating another man last year, and when he found out, he came again to beat him up,” she told the court.

The president of the court advised the couple to resolve their differences for the sake of their children.

The case has been adjourned to December 9, 2019 for furthering hearing.
