He said his union to her had resulted in serious problems, adding that he is not in love with her.
Speaking before the President of the court, Mr. Williams Philips, the complainant said, “I was forced to marry Comfort by a fake prophet at a church where I once served as an assistant pastor.
“Comfort and I met for just two weeks before our wedding. It was when we started living as husband and wife that Comfort showed her true colour.
“Whenever I tried to tell her that her behaviour was wrong, she would grab my shirt and start shouting.
“Before her sudden change and cruel attitude, I prayed and God revealed to me that Comfort wasn’t my wife. I chose wrongly. I can’t find peace in my house.
“I don’t love her anymore. I don’t want this to tarnish my ministry and my reputation as a pastor. That’s why I decided to file a divorce. I think the divorce would bring peace to my ministry,” he said.
On her part, Comfort denied the allegations.
She stressed that the root of their marital problem was that Samuel wanted to use her to raise his children.
Comfort said: “After Samuel lost his wife and married me, I started taking care of his children. Samuel and I didn’t have any form of quarrel. I was shocked when I saw divorce summon from Agege Customary Court.”
The court adjourned the case till February 11 for
