I Had Sex With my Brother-in-Law Because I Mistook Him For my Husband, Woman Tells Court
A trader identified as Kudirat Ajayi has told a court in Igando area of Lagos state that she sex with her brother-in-law because she thought it was her husband.
The woman’s husband begged the court not to end their marriage.
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.
“It was after he finished making love to me that I realized that he was not my husband.
“When I queried him, he claimed that my husband had traveled that was why he came to have sex 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 mother of four denied being fetish as claimed by her husband and prayed the court not to grant her husband’s wish for the dissolution of their marriage that she still loves him.
The husband, however, approached the court to terminate his 35-year-old marriage accusing the wife of infidelity. He said that his wife was wayward and adulterous and her concubine 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.
“I started hearing from people in the area that my wife was having an affair with a man, initially I ignored it until her lover came claiming ownership of one of my children.
“The man eventually came to the house but I refused to open the door for him.
“When I questioned my wife, she confessed that the man slept with her but it did not result in pregnancy.”
The 71-year-old businessman said, “I once caught her burying something in my compound, I accosted her and tried to remove what she buried there but I could not.
“I went out before I returned, she had cemented the place.”
He begged the court to end the marriage that he was no longer interested.
He adjourned the case until Thursday, August 22.
