Olalekan, 48, also told the court that there was no more love in the marriage.
He said that he had become frustrated, due to the extramarital affairs, his wife Funmilayo was allegedly having and the public disgrace, she was subjecting him to.
“Sometime in the year 2009, I met Funmilayo in her sister’s shop and I proposed to her. I told her I don’t want any child from her because her former husband was alive.
“She had divorced her husband before I started dating her. So she got pregnant for me when her husband that she had four children for died.
“After delivering a baby girl named Oluwatimilehin, she started dating another man.
“One day, when I entered the house I rented for her, I caught her sitting down on her boyfriend’s lap and I left the house for her.
“Since then, she started making life unbearable for me. I lost a job of over N120 million because she seized my phones.
“She collected N150, 000 and slapped me twice before releasing my phones.
“There was another day she broke a bottle of wine and threatened to stab me with it.
“My lord, all that my husband said is true but I have learnt my lesson now.
“I promise to be a good wife to him. I have nowhere to go. Since I lost my first husband, Olalekan has been responsible for the upkeep of my four children from my late husband.
The President of the court, Mr Sakirudeen Adekola, adjourned the case until July 30 for peaceful settlement by the families of the couple.
