A 59-year-old physically challenged Nigerian man who is accusing his wife of infidelity has pleaded with the Igando customary court in Lagos State to dissolve the 23-year-old marriage.
Olaiya Adeagbo told that court that his 46-year-old wife, Taiwo Adeagbo, was having an affair with their neighbour who was a bachelor, a report by the Vanguard newspaper said.
He said having received a tip from someone in their house that his wife was cheating on him, he came home earlier than usual one day and could not find her in their room.
Olaiya said two neighbours in the house hinted him that his wife had sneaked into her lover's room, so he went to knock the door but the neighbour refused to open after hearing his voice.
“I continued knocking and he later opened his door, and I saw my wife hiding behind his door, sweating and panting; I greeted her and left."
He urged the court to terminate the marriage as he was no longer interested in the union.
In her submission, the wife denied having an affair with their neighbour.
According to her, the man was a mere benefactor who always assisted her in times of difficulty.
