A university lecturer in Nigeria is facing a humiliating dilemma in his marriage after his wife left him for a bricklayer.
Suraju Oyekunle, said to be a lecturer at Lagos State University (LASU) is wondering how he would save his 13-year-old marriage to Kafayat who has not only been unfaithful to him, but is pregnant for another man.
The real complication, however, is that Mrs. Oyekunle has openly confessed to being in love with the bricklayer, whom she said she prefers to spend the rest of her life with.
According to PM Express, Mrs. Oyekunle, 36, packed out from her matrimonial home in October when her husband travelled out of the town, and then moved in with Alimi, her new lover, who was living in the same Igando community where she and her husband were living in Lagos.
She preferred the bricklayer’s smaller apartment to her husband’s house, and she took along with her, a 12-year-old son she had for her husband.
34yrs old Alimi was said to have been arrested by the police, and arraigned in court on Thursday for conduct likely to cause breach of peace, after the woman’s husband lodged a complaint against him.
He pleaded not guilty before a magistrate, who granted him bail in the sum of N25,000. He was sent to the prison custody until he is able to meet the bail conditions.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Oyekunle has vowed to do all she could to secure freedom for Alimi.
Mrs. Oyekunle said that her bricklayer lover, despite his poor status, was better off than her husband.
She said her family supports her relationship with Alimi. The guy is scheduled to appear again in court on December 12.
