Great confession is the way that some people will describe it but it is the true account of a businesswoman, Toyin Bello.
She has told the Ile-Tuntun Customary Court in Ibadan, her reason for allowing another man, to impregnant her.
Bello, had been married to Dotun for 16 years before the relationship went awry, forcing the woman to petition the court.
First, she alleged that her husband had starved her of sex for ten years, and secondly, that he was infertile and therefore unable to help her fulfil her desires as a woman.

”I got pregnant by someone to shield me husband from the shame of childlessness.
”He refused me sex for 10 years. He also wants to kill me so that he will inherit my house.
”I left my home and now live in in a Church at Asi area in Ibadan. My lord, I cannot continue to waste my time with Dotun, age is no longer on my side, please dissolve our union,” Toyin told the court.
All these she said in her petition, arguing that she no longer saw any reason why she should continue to answer the man’s wife, much less stay in the union.
On the other hand, Dotun, opposed the suit, praying the court to beg his wife to stay on.
He told the court that his wife had been a rare gem and that he would not want them to part way.

”I agree that I have a medical condition which prevents me from having a child. She also locked me out of her room,” he said
Apparently, the court was not satisfied with the man’s pleas.
Delivering judgment, the President of the court, Chief Henry Agbaje held that the marriage had to be dissolved in the interest of peace.
Agbaje ordered Dotun to move out of the shared property within seven days.
He warned any attempt to cause a breach of peace would be treated as a criminal offence, agency reports say.
