Speaking further the Mr Adejumo said: “We were at home enjoying ourselves one day when suddenly her phone rang and immediately she went out of the room without her pant. She didn’t return home until 9.30 p.m. She is also involved in extramarital flings with a lawyer. There was a day she held my penis with a fetish ring after which it could not function for three months until I sought solution to it through a native doctor who happens to be a friend of mine.”
He pleaded with the court to grant him custody of their three children and described his wife as carefree woman who was not ready to take proper care of the children. In response to his allegations, Simbiat said: “He is always beating me. During one of the beatings, I fainted and could not stand up for days. He lies on three cutlasses when he sleeps”
