Mr. Abayomi Orioye has urged an Ijanikin Customary Court, Lagos, to dissolve his marriage to Mrs. Elizabeth Orioye because he found that she had sex with his best friend.
And to add salt to injury, the incident took place in their matrimonial home.
Narrating the incident, Abayomi, 50, told the court that she told the wife on the day the sacrilegeous act took place that he was going on a tour only to return home unexpectedly and caught his wife having sex with his best friend.
He added that his wife got pregnant shortly thereafter, but the boy she delivered did not resemble him.
Google and all of its major services were blocked in China on Friday, as the Communist Party meets to appoint new leaders for the first time in a decade.
Google's own "transparency report" - designed to detect and publicize service disruptions - shows a sharp drop in traffic from China across all of Google's products. The company added the incident to its timeline of outages. "We've checked and there's nothing wrong on our end," a Google representative told CNNMoney.
The cause of the outage is unclear, but it comes just one day after the start of the Communist Party's 18th National Congress in China. The once-every-decade meeting is held to select a new stable of leaders.

With news reverberating worldwide of Barack Obama’s historic re-election to office following one of the most closely contested election battles in American history, a video released on YouTube hours before results trickled in shows Nigerian Pastor T.B. Joshua had prophesied his historic victory.
The video, released on Joshua’s official YouTube channel, ‘scoanTV’ and his Christian television station, Emmanuel TV, shows him talking about the battle for American Presidency on Sunday 6th May, a time when national polls were still projecting a relatively comfortable victory for Obama.
“We should pray for President Obama,” Joshua said. “He should do something quickly on health care
"The major problem is that some pastors refused to obey what the Bible says. We are expected to seek the kingdom first and then all other things shall be added unto them. But today, some of us seek all other things first before the kingdom of God.”
Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly, Lagos, has condemned the fast growing practice of some pastors, especially in Nigeria, making their wives automatic pastors, for selfish reasons.
Reacting to the 'wrong' trend recent, the popular preacher said:
“On the issue of pastors making their wives automatic pastors, [it] is wrong. In fact, I observed that such
Remember the story we served you in our last edition about a bank MD, whose marriage of over 15 years is currently under threat over his romance with a star actress? A fresh angle has just emerged on the not-so-funny drama: The bank MD's son who is a secondary school student has threatened to commit suicide if his father does not quit the romance and reconcile with his mother!
For starts, we leant that the poor boy who is shocked by his father's shameful action has embarked on hunger strike. His performance in school has equally gone down and like he warned recently, if his love-struck father remains obstinate, he may take his protest to the extreme by committing suicide. Of course
On Friday afternoon, General David Petraeus announced his resignation as CIA director, citing an extramarital affair. Almost immediately, Slate named Petraeus’s biographer, Paula Broadwell, as the mystery woman. And according to NBC, the FBI has been investigating Broadwell out of concern that she had access to confidential information.
Broadwell is the author, with Vernon Loeb, of All In: The Education of General David Petraeus, a glowing 400-page biography of Petraeus, for which she was granted almost total access. After it was published in January, some said it read more like a love letter to the general than a biography. In a review for Rolling Stone, Michael Hastings called the book “a work of fan fiction so fawning that not even Max Boot—a Petraeus buddy and Pentagon sock puppet—could bring himself to rave about it.”
Broadwell, 40, is a research associate at Harvard’s Center for Public Leadership—as well as a PhD candidate in the department of war studies at King’s College in London. She is married to Scott Broadwell, an interventional radiologist, and lives in Dilworth, N.C., with their two sons, Landon and Lucien. She grew
Son of Afro-beat king, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, who died 15 years ago, Seun, has condemned the ban of marijuana and cigarette, adding that the position of the law on the two products was illogical.
According to Seun, the favoured cigarette has lethal consequences, while the legally opposed marijuana was medicinal and good for human consumption. But, Seun said, the lethal cigarette was favored simply because it was to the white man’s profit, stressing that marijuana would make black countries richer than the white if legalized. Seun damned black politicians for taking the white’s advice against its own natural produce of
Are they or aren't they? That's been the burning question when it comes to the relationship status of Rihanna and Chris Brown. Well, according to the Barbadian beauty they … aren't.
During a Facebook Live interview conducted by Bravo's Andy Cohen on Wednesday, the 24-year-old songstress was asked point blank whether she is dating Chris Brown. "No. Not together," she replied.
However, she was quick to offer kind words about Brown, who does a duet with her — called "Nobody's Business" — on her new album, Unapologetic. "He's dope, too," she said. "He's kinda alright."
The twosome has had a long and tangled history. After Brown physically abused Rihanna in 2009, they went

I put a question mark there because I don't know for sure if they are married but the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire host recently introduced Sandra Onyenaucheya as his wife. Not girlfriend or fiancee, as wife. He told guests at the unveiling of the new Heineken bottle which held at the Federal Palace hotel some days back, that he came to the event with his wife, Sandra, who was wearing a wedding band.
The couple went public last year after Frank Edoho ended his marriage with mother of his three children, TV

A regular customer of the shop where he works in Framingham, said, “Onyango Obama certainly lives a life that is a world away from President Barack Obama. The house he lives in, with
The man is a 100 level student of the Anambra State University, Igbariam campus.

When the SARS team arrived, they tried to talk to the guy and demanded an id card of which he couldn't
In the advertising world, producing a commercial that runs during the Super Bowl is like, well, winning the Super Bowl. When creative director Bill Cochran pitched an idea that Bridgestone Tires liked enough to air during the 2010 game, it was a career-defining moment.
"It was huge," said Cochran. "To have something on the biggest stage for advertising meant the world to me." Cochran was soon to have another career-defining moment. It involved coming up with a new spot for Bridgestone's Super Bowl campaign the following year.
Bill's boss at the Dallas-based Richards Group sent out a mass email to more than one hundred creative
In a bloodcurdling incident, a domestic worker from Gwabalanda suburb in Bulawayo Zimbabwe betrayed her employer's trust when she was allegedly caught sucking blood from the nose of her employer's four-year-old child. The mother (name withheld to protect the identity of the child) revealed that she got a tip-off from her neighbour after she had heard her child screaming in pain at the same time every day.

A 16-year-old Bulawayo girl from Zimbabwe has confessed to being part of a satanic cult that allegedly drinks human blood and feeds on human flesh.
The girl left residents' representatives and Councillor Collet Ndhlovu under whom Cowdray Park falls, dumb-founded as she gave out a list of 38 people including their addresses, which her cult had allegedly killed in the suburb.
She went on to mention about 60 people that she said she worked with.
Included in the list were leaders of a big church in Cowdray Park.
The girl also gave the address of a house she claimed had an underground room where corpses were kept for the Satanists to feed on.

The morning after he won re-election, an emotional President Barack Obama credited his youthful staff of several hundred with running a campaign that will "go on in the annals of history."
"What you guys have accomplished will go on in the annals of history and they will read about it and they'll marvel about it," said Obama told his team Wednesday morning inside the Chicago campaign headquarters, tears streaming down his face.
"The most important thing you need to know is that your journey's just beginning. You're just starting. And whatever good we do over the next four years will pale in comparison to whatever you guys end up accomplishing in the years and years to come," he said.
The moment, captured by the Obama campaign's cameras and posted online, offers a rare glimpse at the
