Jummai Mala, wife of the founder of Heavengate Bible Mission in Bachure, Yola North Local Government Area, Adamawa State, has revealed that her husband, Yakubu Ayuba, has a bed in his office he uses for having sex with church members.
She said this at the hearing of her application for dissolution of marriage at the Yola Upper Area Court. She added that she has caught him countless times having sex with his members.
Mrs Jummai Mala, who also claims to be the breadwinner of the family, alleged in court filings that Ayuba, with whom she has three kids, is in the habit of chasing women in his church. She said some have threatened to beat her up over her husband’s harassment.
While substantiating her claim that her estranged husband had abdicated his responsibilities as the head of his home, Jummai added that Yakubu was in the habit of beating her whenever she refused to give him money and once broke her head.
According to her, due to family challenges and frustration, she later decided to build her own house and moved in together with the respondent.
She added that her husband on his own packed out of the house and left her alone with the responsibility of catering for the children, adding that he usually visited the house whenever he needed money or was hungry.
However, Yakubu told the court that his wife lied in her claims.
Umar Isa, the presiding judge, adjourned the matter until March 10 for continuation of defence.
