An has officially dissolved an 18-year-old marriage between Pastor Chris Onyekachi-Madu and his estranged wife, Augusta, after she got pregnant for an Okadaman.
A pastor, Chris Onyekachi-Madu has divorced his wife, Augusta for getting pregnant for a commercial motorcycle (Okada) rider.
The 18-year-old marriage was officially dissolved by an Igando Customary Grade A Court in Lagos.
The Court president, Rasaq Ishola-Adeyeri, ruled in his judgement that it had been proved beyond reasonable doubt that the relationship between the plaintiff and the defendant had hit the rocks, since all efforts to settle both parties had proved abortive.
A report by Osun Defender, said the defendant had refused to show up in court after she had been served court summons on three occasions.
Adeyeri said: “It is, therefore, assumed that she too is no longer interested in the union again; the plaintiff also maintained his stand to part ways peacefully with the respondent.”
“The motion, therefore, succeeds and order is, hereby, given that the marriage between Chris Onyekachi and Augusta Madu is officially dissolved from today January 28.
“The custody of the two children is, hereby, referred to the family court within Lagos Judicial Division, who has executive right to hear and determine matters involving children under 18 years.”
