Leonard Dilcon, a former member of the house of representatives, claims that his wife, Joy, had sexual intercourse with his pastor, leading to the collapse of their marriage.
Joy had in September 2014 filed for a dissolution of the 20-year-old marriage.
Speaking on Friday during the hearing of the divorce suit, Dilcon who represented Pankshin/Kanam/Kanke federal constituency at the national assembly, accused his wife of neglecting the marriage.
He said she had extra-marital affairs with pastor Danjuma Fwenji of God’s Grace Divine Mission, Jos, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
The ex-lawmaker said Joy and Fwenji had carnal knowledge of each other at her parents’ home and the church.
“Each time I try to resolve our differences with my wife, the Pastor will appear and confuse everything,” he said.
Fwenji who was present to defend himself said he never had sex with the lawmaker’s wife nor did he know her residence.
The pastor said she was brought to his ministry in 2006 for prayers and counselling.
He said the church had asked Joy to stop attending its programmes due to the challenges in her marriage.
“Ever since she stopped attending the church’s programmes, I have not seen her again,” he said.
Justice David Mann has adjourned the case to February 20.
