A trader, Mrs. Ajayi, 52, told an Igando Customary Court that she slept with her brother-in-law because she thought he was her husband.
Ajayi’s husband, Akande, is seeking the dissolution of their 35-year marriage, accusing her of infidelity.
“I was in bed when my husband’s younger brother came to the house my husband rented for me.
“I thought it was my husband who normally comes to the house at that particular time between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. to play and sleep with me.
“When I queried him, he claimed that my husband had traveled that was why he came to have s*x with me.
“I reported the case to my brother’s wife, who advised me not to tell my brother so that peace can reign in the family.”
The respondent said that her husband treats the children of the other wives better than hers.
The mother of four denied being fetish as claimed by her husband.
Ajayi prayed to the court not to grant her husband’s wish for the dissolution of their marriage and that she still loves him.
The petitioner, Akande, approached the court to terminate his 35-year marriage accusing the wife of infidelity.
He said that his wife was wayward and adulterous that her man friend was claiming paternity of one of their children.
“When I married her, I rented an apartment for her because I have other wives and I don’t want them to live together.
