Pastor divorces wife as herbalist dies on her during sex in Ekiti

The marriage of Pastor Joshua Ajagunigbala and his wife, Rita has been dissolved in Ekiti State following allegations of his wife’s infidelity with a herbalist.

During the hearing, he asked for the marriage to be dissolved on the grounds of adultery and for custody of their children. He revealed that they had been living together for over 22 years, without the payment of a dowry.

This was his third time taking her to court on adultery charges. Mrs. Ajagunigbala admitted to having a sexual relationship with a late herbalist, claiming it was due to her husband’s lack of care.

The court ruled that the marriage was illegal since no dowry was paid, allowing them to go their separate ways.

He said, “Having gone through all the oral evidence presented before this Court, it was discovered that there was no legal customary marriage between parties herein and there is no marriage available between parties to dissolve”.

“The Court hereby order that the parties are now free to go on their own without disturbing the peace of each other.”

Pastor Ajagunigbala, the petitioner, was directed by the Court to assume complete responsibility for the well-being and schooling of the two youngest children resulting from the union, as they are still minors.
