Court Dissolves Leonard Dilkon's Marriage To Joy by Zaki500(m): 2:43pm On May 31, 2017
MODS please help move to the right section.
I wonder why these repeated allegations of adultery with Pastors nowadays... Something is definitely going wrong...

A Jos High Court on Tuesday dissolved the marriage between Leonard Dilkon, a former member of the House of Representatives, and his wife, Joy.
Justice David Mann of High Court III, dissolved the marriage in his judgment on the petition filed by Joy, seeking an end to the union.

“The marriage between these two people has broken down irretrievably. It is hereby dissolved,” Justice Mann declared.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that Joy, through her counsel, Juliet Esoro, had filed a petition on Aug. 5, 2016 asking the court to dissolve the marriage because she was no more in love with her husband.
She also prayed the court to grant her access to the three children the marriage was blessed with. The children had been with their father since the marital crisis began in 2011.

She said since July 3, 2011, when the crises started, she had lived separately with her husband “without any conjugal relationship between them”.

But Mr. Dilkon, who did not oppose her plea for divorce, accused Joy of committing adultery with her pastor, Damjuma Fwenji.

The former lawmaker, through his counsel, Francis Okafor, accused the wife of being unfaithful to him “for à very long time”.

In his cross petition to the court, Mr. Dilkon claimed Joy once took in for Mr. Fwenji, but alleged that the pregnancy was aborted.

Mr. Fwenji, however, denied the allegation, and filed a motion seeking N10 million as compensation for the damage to his image and reputation.


Mr. Mann, in his judgement, declared that from all indications, especially from the evidences of the prosecution and defence witnesses, the marriage could not stand since all attempts to reconcile the couple had failed.

“From all indications, the marriage between Mr and Mrs. Dilkon has broken down irretrievable and I hereby declared it dissolved.

“As for the prayer for access to the children, the court hereby grants the mother of the three children equal access as their father, both at home and at school,’’ he declared.

On the issue of Mr. Dilkon’s claim of adultery against the wife and the clergy, the judge declared that that petition had failed as the “petitioner could not substantiate his claim before this honourable court.’’

“I hereby declare that Dilkon’s claim of adultery has failed and therefore is struck out.

“Fwenji’s demand for N10 million as damage can also not stand since he did not follow due process in filing his appeal. It is therefore discarded,’’ Mr. Mann further declared. (NAN)

Good question. Though the wife hasn't made any counter accusation to suggest he isn't clean.

maybe she's guilty as charged, in law, silence means consent!

Marriage is becoming an institution where those outside are eager to get in and those inside are looking for ways to get out.

What does that have to do with anything?

Wimps like you who have no idea what it means to be an African man. It's woman wrapper 'males' like you that reinforce the obnoxious pattern we're now observing among so-called 'empowered' women of nowadays.

So if a man is playing around, then it is allowed for his wife to do the same too? Under whose roof? Since when did men and women in Africa start playing by the same set of rules?

Which people does he play around with? Aren't they other people's wives, fiancee and girlfriends? So is it ok for him to play around with another man's woman? Then it's ok for the pastor or whoever to play around with her

Bros... We have shifted to the culture of the whites which allows one man to one woman and also gives women equal rights as men.

Haba Bros! I hope you will be happy to see a married man playing with your wife's or your daughter's or even your sister's emotions and marriage. One man's toy is another man's heart beat. Mind what you say and how you think because things have a way of coming back to us.
