Court dissolves Pastor’s 41yr old marriage for allegedly impregnating daughter, wife’s sister

An Igando Customary Court in Lagos on Thursday dissolved a 41-year-old marriage between Mabel Alli and her husband, Pastor Richard, over incest.

The Court President, Adeniyi Koledoye, said it appeared that the estranged couple were tired of the marriage and all efforts to reconcile them failed.

Koledoye said: “Since both parties agreed to the dissolution of the marriage, this court has no choice but to dissolve it.

“The court hereby pronounce the marriage between Mabel Alli and Pastor Richard dissolved.

“Both of you henceforth cease to be husband and wife.

“Each of you should go your separate ways.

“The court wishes both of you well in your future endeavors.”

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the petitioner, Mabel, approached the court to end her marriage to Richard for impregnating her sister and their daughter.

She said: “My husband sexually molested all three of our daughters.

“After impregnating my sister, he took one of our daughters to the hospital to have an abortion.

“Our 19-year-old girl also reported to me that he always sneaks into her room to have intercourse with her and I have caught him in the act.
