"I was surprised that my husband locked

his prayer partner, wife of another man, in

his bedroom overnight... The act not only

led to the collapse of our marriage but it

also led to the break up in the woman’s

home because after I had left him, people

were still seeing my husband and the

woman together.

“Her husband eventually sent her packing

from her matrimonial home...”

Those where the words of an estranged

pastor’s wife, Mrs. Rebecca Bamidele, while

narrating to an Ojo Customary Court in

Lagos, how her husband, Pastor Israel

Bamidele, locked himself with a female

prayer partner in his bedroom overnight

on several occasions.

Giving evidence in a divorce petition which

her husband filed against her in the court,

Rebecca said although her husband falsely

accused her of infidelity, he was the one

that is neck deep in the shameful act.

Apart from the issue of hosting his prayer

partner in his bedroom, Rebecca also

disclosed that she caught her husband,

Pastor Bamidele, sleeping with his school

secretary on several occasion, but she

couldn't complain because he would beat

her silly.

When asked the position of her husband’s

family on the crisis, Rebecca said:

She once traveled to Osun State to meet

her mother-in-law but to her surprise her

husband's mum said she should allow his

son marry another wife because her

father-in-law, who is a prophet, had three


redecca added, “When I returned to Lagos,

my husband quarreled with me, saying

why should I go to his homestead in Osun

State to inform his mother about issues in

our marriage in Lagos?”

She said, “anytime I complain, my

husband will say I was becoming too

stubborn for him. He would say in Yoruba,

‘ila ti n ga ju onire lo’, meaning, the okro

plant was becoming taller than it's owner.”

When the court asked her about the role

played by other pastors to resolve the

crisis, Rebecca said Bamidele is the founder

and general overseer of his church and as

such other leaders were subordinated to

him since he appointed them.

The court president, Hakeem Tunde

Oyekan, adjourned the matter till 27

August, 2013, for judgement.
