Nigeria Pastor Cries Out in Court
Popular Nigerian pastor Samson Farounbi has told the court that his wife has refused to have sex with him because of his small penis.
Farounbi approached the court which sat in Idi-Ogungun, Agodi, in Ibadan, Oyo state, to end his 19-year-old marriage to his wife, Tope.
According to the clergyman, he’s filing for divorce on grounds of lack of rest of mind, threat to life and lack of respect for his family. He also accused his wife of coming late in the night after sales and depriving him of sex.
While testifying in court, Farounbi said:
“There was a day I challenged her why she always returned late and denying me sex. She confessed that the small size of my penis was responsible for keeping late outside and for refusing to have sex with me. She suggested to buy local herb for the treatment of my micro penis, which cost N5,000, but I priced it down to N4,000. I got myself treated with the Agbo (local herb), but she still felt reluctant to allow me have access to her body. My lord, she is a devil, always fighting people, especially females that come to my church for prayer, accusing me of flirting with them. We have never stayed beyond two years in every house I rented since we married 19 years ago due to her stubbornness and troublesome character. The five children of our union lack home training and always cursing me whenever I tried to correct any of the kids for doing wrong things. In fact, our first child has run away from home now and I cannot even locate his whereabouts. I urge the court to separate us so that I can have peace of mind to do my pastoral work”.
On her part, Tope accused her husband of womanising and alcoholism as she also asked the court to dissolve their marriage.
Dissolving the marriage, the magistrate, Mr. Mukaila Balogun ordered that the Pastor keeps the three male children of their union while the wife keeps the two female children. He also ordered that the pastor must pay N8, 000 to the wife monthly for the upkeep of the two children in her custody.
