An Agege Customary Court yesterday dissolved the 12-year-old marriage between a policeman, Patrick Idoko and his wife, Udoka, for infidelity, lack of love and trust.
Idoko, 40, from Benue State, who lives in Shomoye Street, Ijaiye-Ojokoro, Lagos described his wife as troublesome and uncaring.
He went to court to dissolve the marriage on grounds of infidelity, lack of love and care for hims and the four children of the union.
His marriage, he said, was crisis-free until two years ago when he suspected Udoka was having extra-marital affairs.
“l set a trap for her and she fell for it on Jan. 12 and since then, my wife refused to come home.
“Due to her shameful act, she left me and I have been taking care of the children.”
The petitioner said he secretly installed a memory card on the new phone he bought for her to record her conversations.
“The playback of the phone revealed the secret conversations between the respondent and her secret lover.”
In her response, Udoka, denied all the allegations made against her and pleaded with the court not to dissolve the marriage, attributing her travails to rumour mongers in their neighbourhood.
The petitioner had earlier accepted to take the woman back on the condition that she subjected herself to some “spiritual cleansing”.
The respondent agreed to the terms, but refused to follow the husband to the village for the cleansing.
Dissolving the union, the President of the court, Mr Philip Williams, said: “The relationship between the couple has broken down completely and the respondent shows she is no more interested in the marriage.”
He asked both parties to go their separate ways and warned them to desist from blackmailing and harassing each other.
The president warned the respondent not to go to the petitioner’s residence, work place or his church to cause trouble and directed that the marriage dissolution certificate should be sent to Udoka to inform her about the development.
the man don try oh as police hunter him b
How did he set d trap?
Eeeyaa so ur wife is a rat
so your wife is a rat that you will set trap to
Instead of you to pray for her, it’s trap your setting
Play for cheat?even the Bible doesn’t advice that.So pls change from thinking nd altitude if u have been cheating or intend to.
Hmmmmm my dear? Are you advising a man to pray for his cheating wife? Remember the woman brought the young man to their matrimonial bed.
See if you know your wife cheats, you caution her and pray she stops it, if you truly love her, love conquers all. Ok fine she cheats and you chase her out and you still say you once loved her, that’s how I see it, if anyone I know cheats but sexually or otherwise I take it to God to change that person. I didn’t read the story I only commented on what I feel about Cheating
#JosephUwemedimo I don’t and don’t plan in the nearest future thanks.
Paulyn Pearl Kalu, if u don’t suspect a woman can u seta trap NO?
It s your problem. Y would you set a trap ?

Since she refused to go with you to the village,is better you allow her to go,for the sake of your 4 kids,and for the safety of your life
The woman is shameless how can a married woman commit adultery in first plc let’s forget about the husband setting a trap for her
we should try nd face reality if a woman is tired of a relationship,she should come out clearly to her husband for divorce instead of sleeping with other men while still married is a taboo. Most married women can’t keep their legs close chasing after little boys all in the name of satisfaction
God bless u my sister
Well said dear , very common this days and is getting out of hands let us pray hard the kingdom of God is closer than before . may God help us to make it to his kingdom.
That’s just it,simple
hard fact. God bless u madam
My dear pray dat God will not put u in a situation dat will make u fall into dis kind of temptation.i used to condem gals dat date married man until i almost fell into dat temptation.thank God for grace and mercy and it never happened,since den i dont judge o.cos somethings are beyond human understanding
is dat why u are crying
Whc kind of woman b this na they type dy cos povty 4 thair husbnd may god help
Hope u shot dem sa
Hu tuk d photo?
Why will you set your wife up?? I don’t understand why you’re in marriage, and you don’t trust each other and love is not there, a reasonable man cannot do this…..As for the woman,. You’re a disgrace to your family becox before your husband set you up ,…it means your footsteps and life,everything concerning you have change, you should have make it clear to him that you’re tired of the relationship,… You’re under a man cause, God have mercy
Shes a stupid woman
Hmmmmmm this woman self on your matrimonial bed taboo.
Oga just forgive her. It is in her
Such things are bound to happen when relationship is built on material things and sex,instead of true love although it is scarce, but it still exist.
Hi Sir i advise u to send her at and ask her to lieve ur family before she never kill u because dey are devil u can trust them
I wonder what’s wrong with some women
Ømø The Trap Catch 2Rats At The Same Time…But Wait Ooo!!,Oga #Police,If U Had Channeled This Ur Trap Strength Into Catching Of #ArmRobbers,Thief’s For Nodey 9Ja Again…
Cat dey set trap for rat,but wait ooo wetin u just set the trap na fish abi na biscuit bone? I pity the married women DAT cheat
Hummm so what will you do?
To bring her back?
Set trap for ur wify she be rat or bush animal?
Setting traps for her means u don’t love her, u are there to protect ,direct and defend her! Remember she is just human.
Be more prayerful Sir, its a pity
Setting traps for her means u don’t love her,u are to protect, direct and defend her, reme
Can he swear that he has never cheated on the wife, simply put u don’t love her again. But mind u that what goes around comes around
Congrats…. Trap setter
Congrats…. Trap setter
This kind one ennnnn…abeg nor dey ooo..she must go and neva to return again even if up touch ground she can neva return again
that is risky. setting trap for your wife.maybe you met her in a club house, hotel or somewhere awkward . if there is trust no need for that. it is the way u make your bed you will lie on it
I dnt knw y some pply put blame on dis man…y should a married woman b cheatn on her hubby, on account of no any reasn, dat’s very bad…before her husbnd would set a trap he must have been patient to knw d truth…Dis will be a lesson to other women who cheat on their husbands…
Goals can’t be erase after scoring, let them carry on, then u move on, any woman who does that prove that she don’t love her initial man. God change stupid women n men
So u where suspecting her before u set the trap,now where is dis whole love thin self, Christians record d highest of divorce in the whole wide world, dat is cos many are into marriage wit pretentious intention, how can one confess love to a man or woman before the Alter of God Nd still went wit such an indecent exposure, is well o
