A married woman has confessed in court on who is responsible for her pregnancy and according to her testimony, she is pregnant for her boyfriend and not her husband.

The woman identified as Marian Folarin, on Thursday told a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan that it was her lover that impregnated her and not her husband, Kayode Folarin.

The mother-of-four in her original petition to the court accused her husband of “gross irresponsibility and incompetence” in managing the home.

She said:

“My lord, hunger, thirst and wretchedness had been the order of the day with me in
Kayode’s house in the last 20 years I lived with him.

“Kayode and I earlier had a mutual agreement not to have more than four children and he did everything not to violate that agreement.

“But he had been unable to cater for me and the children, beside the constant beating which I receive
from him.

“I stopped Kayode from having sex with me since 2007 so as not to get pregnant. However, as I speak now, I have been impregnated by my lover, Ololade, a mechanic at Gate area of Ibadan.

“I pray this honourable court to order Kayode to stop molesting and harassing me in the neighbourhood because I am no longer interested in the marriage; I have found new love.”

The respondent denied all allegations preferred against him, saying he still loves his wife.

He said:

“Marian is a pathological liar because I always give her my love and care and people can bear me witness.

“It is only unfortunate that she is being misguided somewhere. My lord, I want to confirm to you that
I impregnated Marian and not any mechanic.

“Marian was three months pregnant before she left my house.”

Marian’s 14-year-old daughter, in her testimony, told the court that her father was a caring man who did everything possible to satisfy her mother.

She said, “I think my mother is just ungrateful.”

The President of the court, Ademola Odunade, after deliberating on the matter, ordered a court official to take Marian for pregnancy test to ascertain the age of the pregnancy.
