Nigerian Cleric Caught In Bed With Married Woman, 8 Inmates Shot Dead, 17 injured In Prison Riot

Cleric “Caught In Bed With Married Woman” Loses Marriage



The 15-year marriage between a cleric identified as Yusuf Adeniyi and his wife has been dissolved by an Igando Customary Court in Lagos State on Monday over infidelity.

Yusuf’s wife, Rebecca, 44, sought the dissolution of the marriage, saying that she caught him cheating on her.

Rebecca claimed that she caught her 47-year-old husband with a married woman on their matrimonial bed.

The Court President, Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, granted the request, saying that the petitioner insisted on divorce.

“The court is left with no option than to grant your prayer and hereby pronounces the union dissolved.

“The court hereby pronounces the marriage between Mrs Rebecca Adeniyi and Mr Yusuf Adeniyi dissolved.

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

“Each of you should go on his or her separate ways unmolested; the court wishes both of you well in your future endeavours,” he said.

Koledoye ordered Yusuf to be responsible for their children’s feeding, education and general welfare.

Rebecca had also told the court that Yusuf had extramarital affairs with both single and married women.

“I caught him having sexual intercourse with one. I grabbed the woman and tore her clothes.

“I raised alarm; he started begging me not to expose the woman.

“My husband’s behaviour toward me changed after the incident. He no longer gave me money nor cared for me,” she submitted.

The 44-year-old mother of four also claimed that her husband was fetish, saying that he married her with charm.

“I was under the influence of charm in my marriage with Yusuf.

“The wool was pulled off my eyes five years ago but I decided to remain in the marriage because of my children.”



Eight inmates shot dead, 17 injured in Sri Lanka prison riot

Sri Lankan prison guards shot dead eight inmates and wounded at least 71 others in a riot sparked by anger over rising coronavirus infections, officials said Monday.

Sri Lanka’s prisons have seen weeks of unrest as the number of Covid-19 cases soared and authorities banned visits.

Two inmates have died of the disease, and more than 1,200 guards and prisoners have been infected, officials say.

Inmates at the high-security Mahara jail outside Colombo fought with guards through Sunday night after setting fire to the kitchens and an administrative block, and taking two wardens hostage, residents and police said.

On Monday, intermittent gunfire rang out as around 800 security force members — including some 200 police commandos — retook control.

But cannabis was not included in the list of banned substances and 54-year-old Tyson took full advantage with a pre-fight blaze.

He said: “Listen, I can’t stop smoking.

“I smoked during fights. I just have to smoke. I’m sorry. I’m a smoker.

“I smoke every day. I never stopped smoking.”
