A Fake Prophet Tricked Me Into Marrying My Wife

A man has narrated how he was tricked by someone he described as a “fake prophet” who forced him to marry his a lady, which has resulted in serious problems.

The man pleaded with an Agege Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve his marriage to his wife, Comfort, because he doesn’t love her.

Ilesanmi Samuel, said he wouldn’t have married Comfort, if not that he was tricked. Narrating his experience, Samuel 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,”

Samuel added that Comfort used to seize any opportunity to curse him.

He said whenever he tried to tell her that her behaviour was wrong, she would grab his 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.”

On her part, Comfort denied the allegations, saying “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 this morning when I saw divorce summon from Agege Customary Court.”

President of the court, Williams Philips, adjourned the case for further hearing.
