He was starved of sex for four years, he could not take it anymore.

Even with three children with his wife, he went to another woman and had sex.

The fact that he is a pastor, a minister of the gospel does not mean his feelings are dead. After all he is human.

The 46-year-old Joshua Aranse did not deny it when he was dragged to court by his 42-year-old wife Funmilayo, who was seeking for dissolution of the 16-year-old marriage over alleged adultery.

“I am a pastor and I counsel people. It is true that I abandoned her. For over four years, she did not allow me have sexual intercourse with her.

“This is why I went out of my way to impregnate another woman” he told an Alagbado Customary Court in Lagos on Thursday.

“I did not commit adultery except the woman I impregnated,” Aranse said, urging the court to dissolve the marriage, adding “I don’t love her anymore.”

Earlier, the wife had told the court that her husband, a pastor, had in 2010, impregnated another woman.

Funmilayo said: “In 2014, he finally abandoned our matrimonial home.”

“My husband has not set his eyes on his three children since June 30, 2014. He refused to pay their school fees. They no longer go to school because I do not have money to send them to school.

“He sold our car and gave the money to the woman he impregnated. He has refused to take care of the children and I.

“Please separate us because I no longer love him.”

President of the court, Prince A. M. Kosoko ruled that the respondent pay N15,000 for the upkeep of the three children until the case was disposed off.

He directed the man to bring the feeding allowance to the court and adjourned the continuation of trial until March 13.
