A mellow drama followed on Tuesday in a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan, Oyo state
capital, when a housewife and mother of two, Beauty Odinye, asked the court to ignore her divorce case and furthermore her declaration in which she claimed that her significant other, Nathaniel was impotense.
She begun crying, saying her significant other ought to forgive.
Beauty had earlier in July, while testifying in a divorce suit before the court, requested the dissolution of her 12 year-old marriage to Nathaniel over alleged impotence and lack of care.
Beauty, had told the court that the two children she had, were products of Adulterous relationships. She openly said the father of their children was one Adedeji Ishola.
Nathaniel, a businessman had denied that he was impotent.
Not swayed by Beauty’s claims, the court had ordered her to produce the alleged father of her two children on the next date of adjournment.
The case had suffered series of adjournment due to Beauty’s inability to produce her secret lover in court while Nathaniel sought the order of the court for custody of the children, NAN reports.
At the resumed hearing on Tuesday, Beauty dramatically knelt down and tenaciously openly clung to Nathaniel’s legs and pleaded for forgiveness.
Her words, “I want to use this opportunity to plead with this honourable court to disregard all the statements that I earlier made.
“I lied when I said that my husband was not the father of my two children. I do not know what came over me when I said those things."
However, Nathaniel rejected his wife’s plea for mercy, adding that she had done an irreparable damage to his name and reputation.
“My lord, Beauty has ruined my heart and dented my name in public and in the news.
“I cannot accept her plea; not this time, it is too late; she has brought so much shame to me,”Nathaniel lamented.
Beauty’s father, who had all along supported Nathaniel, joined his daughter to plead with his son-in-law for her misguided acts.
The court’s President, Chief Ademola Odunade, subsequently invited the parties and their relatives to his chamber for out of court settlement.
