Prophet Sunday Toluwalase has dragged his wife to court praying the court to dissolve their marriage over what he described as her shameful acts.
Mr. Toluwalase, 56, told the Igando Customary Court that his wife, Alice, encourages one of their children to steal.
According to him: “My wife taught my son, a 17-year old, to steal for her; anytime he comes home with stolen goods, my wife will gladly accept them from him and encourage him to do more.
“There was one day he went to church to steal three Blackberry phones, two Nokia phones and other items, and he delivered them to my wife,” he said.
The prophet further told the court that his wife has been accused several times of engaging in diabolical activities claiming that she has even been in prison for the said offence.
He reportedly said, “My wife always snatch men’s manhood. I don’t know what she was using them to do and that had once landed her in prison,” the estranged husband said.
Toluwalase said that because of her diabolical attitude and stealing, he had left the house for her and her son, because anytime they committed a crime, the police would come to the house.
The obviously unhappy man told the court that his wife and son have also threatened to kill him and his three children from another woman.
“They told me that they will go to my children’s school to abduct them and stab them to death,” he alleged.
Alice, who was in the court to defend herself said it is true that her sion has a stealing habit but denied encouraging him.
Alice, 49, said, “My son always steals and police will come looking for him, but I do not collect those stolen items from him.”
She also begged the court to dissolve their marriage saying she is no longer in love with he husband.
The Presiding Officer, Mr R.I. Adeyeri, adjourned the case to April 25 for judgement.
