Super Eagles player accuses wife of sleeping with Pastor, Others in Court


Super Eagles striker, Kayode Olarenwaju, is asking a Federal Capital Territory High Court to dissolve his marriage with his wife, Ezinne.

The grounds for Olarenwaju’s prayers among others, is that that Ezinne with whom he has three children is sleeping around with one UK-based pastor, Tobi Adegboyega and some other persons.

The Turkey-based footballer is asking N1bn from Pastor Adegboyega in damages for allegedly causing him emotional trauma, financial loss, and loss of goodwill following the “adulterous affair” with Ezinne.

Ezinne herself had earlier instituted legal action against her estranged husband in which she accused the striker of making baseless allegations bordering on infidelity and witchcraft against her and her mother.

As it stands, the 31-year-old in a cross-petition said his wife repeatedly committed adultery with the UK-based pastor and other men since their marriage in 2013.

Ezinne and the UK-based pastor are the Respondent and Co-Respondent respectively in Olarenwaju’s cross-petition.

He also claimed that his stranged wife undermined their joint business ventures.

A verbatim account of the document read: “The Cross Petitioner in his bid to have a lifetime investment in Nigeria decided sometime in 2019 to incorporate a company and indeed incorporated DE- J-S Concept Ltd. as a vehicle for his investments in Nigeria and also made the Respondent a shareholder and a director.

“The Cross Petitioner thereafter purchased many properties from one realtor, Ugochukwu Igboanugo of Ziloc Constructions Limited, who was initially introduced to the Cross Petitioner by the Respondent and it was later discovered that the said Ugochukwu Igboanugo was an ex-lover of the Respondent.

“Unknown to the Cross Petitioner, the Respondent has connived with the said Ugochukwu Igboanugo and collected all the property documents and has been solely and personally collecting rent proceeds from the properties, expending same on her amorous relationship with the Co-Respondent to the Cross Petition.”

The matter has been slated for hearing on September 24, 2024.
