An Ado Ekiti Customary Court on Friday dissolved the eleven-year-old marriage between Muyiwa Owolabi and Tinuola over adultery.

The President of the court, Joseph Ogunsemi, in his judgment dissolved the marriage and awarded the custody of their two children to the plaintiff.

Muyiwa Owolabi, a businessman, dragged his wife, and mother of his two children, Tinuola, before an Ado Ekiti Customary Court to seek an end to their eleven year old marriage, claiming she is a serial adulterer, using Facebook and Whatsapp to perpetrate her dastardly act.

Muyiwa tendered evidences: a Nokia C3 phone, which he alleged the respondent was using to communicate with her lovers, and also tendered printouts of pictures and text messages including pictures of her private parts she exchanged with them.

He gave out the names of Tinuola’s lovers, who she met on Facebook as Aduloju Olu, Andy Harris, Yinka Daramola, Kunle Lawal, Bashir, Benson Onyechere, Taiwo Oyetunji and Alaba Sunday Samson(pictured), an account Officer in Ekiti State Ministry of Agriculture.

But Tinuola denied having sexual relations with all the men mentioned by Muyiwa.

The court held that the issue of adultery was overwhelming given the evidence tendered by the petitioner, and dissolved the marriage.
