A Nigerian pastor Godwin Bankole has been called out for allegedly marrying another man’s wife.
The accuser, Mr Uduak Usanga took to his Facebook page to make the accusation.
He claims to be the previous husband of Christiana Obot, who gave birth to seven children.
According to him, Bankole must return the N6 million naira he paid as bride price before he can be allowed to marry Obot.
Usanga revealed that Christiana Obot, the woman in question, had initially been married to her first husband, with whom she had three children. Subsequently, she married the accuser, Mr Usanga and together they had four children, totaling seven.
The accuser questions the pastor’s choice to marry a woman with a significant age gap, urging him to consider a younger partner. Furthermore, he alleges having evidence of marriage payments and documentation related to their traditional marriage and wedding.
The aggrieved party questions whether Pastor Bankole’s church doctrine permits such unions and accuses him of stealing his wife and children. The accuser claims that the pastor is not only unapologetic but also threatening legal action through court and police.
In response to the accusations, Pastor Godwin Bankole has pleaded with the accuser to come to his house and collect his N6 million naira.
