Nigerian footballer, Olanrewaju slams Pastor Tobi Adegboyega N1 billion lawsuit over alleged affair with his wife


By Rachel Okporu Fadoju

Nigerian footballer, Kayode Olanrewaju, has slammed a N1 billion lawsuit on celebrity UK-based Pastor, Tobi Adegboyega, for emotional trauma, financial loss and loss of goodwill due to his alleged affair with his wife, Dora Ezinne Kayode.

Naija News reports that the cross-petition marked Suit Number PET/304/2024, which was filed at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja, cited several allegations involving infidelity, financial misconduct, and a dramatic family fallout.

Olanrewaju, who is also demanding an official divorce, in his cross-petition, claimed that since their marriage in 2013, Ezinne has repeatedly committed adultery, including his earlier claim of an ongoing affair with Pastor Adegboyega.

He alleged that his wife’s relationship with Adegboyega has not been secret, with the pair seen openly attending parties and sharing intimate moments in public.

The footballer also alleged that Ezinne has had similar relations with other men, which has made it intolerable for him to continue living with her as husband.

Olanrewaju further alleged that Ezinne diverted significant funds and rental proceeds from properties he purchased, stressing that she is using them to sustain her extravagant lifestyle and her alleged relationship with Pastor Adegboyega.

According to the lawsuit, the plot included collusion with Ezinne’s alleged ex-lover, Ugochukwu Igboanugo, who helped her misappropriate property documents.

The footballer further accused Ezinne of abusing alcohol and living a life filled with late-night parties, which contributed to the deterioration of their marriage.

Olarenwaju also mentioned financial tolls, trauma and losses incurred due to the alleged infidelity, financial misappropriation and misconduct, including the abrupt termination of his international football contract, driven by his need to address the crisis for seeking N1 billion in damages.

Olanrewaju said he was shocked when he got a credit alert from his father-in-law sometime in May 2024, indicating a refund of the Bride Price paid during their wedding.

Olanrewaju asked the court to dissolve his marriage with Ezinne and grant him custody of their children because his estranged wife could not be a good role model for their children.

The suit has been adjourned to 24th September 2024 for a hearing.
