Ondo Governorship Aspirant In Messy Adultery Scandal!

Wale Akinterinwa, Ondo State’s former Commissioner for Finance and Action Congress governorship aspirant is presently at the centre of an adultery and divorce scandal. Akinterinwa who resigned from Governor Mimikos’s cabinet in 2009 has been named as the co-respondent in a divorce suit instituted at the Oyo State High Court, Ibadan by Williams Williams Rotimi Fadoju. He has been joined as a party in the suit number I/1093HD/11 with the petitioner’s wife as the respondent.

Fadoju is seeking the dissolution of his 19-year old marriage to Omolara Oyeronke Fadoju.(nee Adekeye).  According to a petition filed at the High Court, Ibadan and dated 30th November, 2011 by Fadoju, he finds it intolerable to continue living with his wife after having discovered her adulterous ways.

Rotimi and Omolara Fadoju got married at the Southwark Registry in Peckham, England on 11th February, 1993 after Omolara’s previous marriage to one Wale Macaulay had been dissolved earlier on in the same year.

According to the petition filed by Rotimi Fadoju, “the marriage started having problems at the instance of the respondent immediately after the birth of the first child of the marriage in 1995.

The respondent decided to prepare the petitioner’s meals only when she desired to and would rain invectives on the petitioner if he questioned the respondent’s failure, refusal or neglect to prepare his meals.”

Mr. Fadoju also stated that his wife developed the habit of nagging at him even in the presence of visitors, neighbours and at times visiting relations. He further averred that initially, love making between him and his wife became infrequent and very far in between, and always at his wife’s convenience. He however pointed out that since November 2010; he has been denied his conjugal rights by his wife who turns down his sexual advances. He disclosed that sexual intercourse has totally ceased between them and the marriage is no longer consummated since there is no longer intimacy through sexual intercourse.

Fadoju disclosed in his petition that in 2006, he started to suspect that his wife was having extra-marital affairs. He stated that his suspicions were confirmed through personal investigation in 2007 that his wife was having an extra-marital affair with one Wale Akinterinwa (the co-respondent) of Awoseyi Street, near Gboluyi Guest House, Ile Oluji, Ondo State, a staunch member of the Labour Party and former Commissioner for Finance in Ondo State but now decamped to the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN).

Fadoju disclosed that when he confronted his wife with his findings, she denied ever knowing anyone by the name Wale Akinterinwa, let alone having an extra-marital affair with him. Three days later however, Fadoju stumbled on a white mug with the following inscription on it:

“Pa Moses Akinterinwa

Died on 18th January, 2007

Buried on 2nd March, 2007

May his gentle soul rest in peace.

Courtesy: Ronke Fadoju and Desola Adekeye”


Mr Fadoju further stated that contrary to denial or knowledge of any relationship with anyone by the name Wale Akinterinwa, she had, exactly a week before the denial, attended the burial ceremony of the co-respondent’s late father and had co-sponsored (with the go between in her act of infidelity i.e Desola Adekeye) the production and distribution to the buri al guests, a number of gift items which included the above mentioned mug. Fadoju has promised to tender the mug in evidence at the trial.

The petitioner also disclosed that sometime in April, 2007, he discovered a number of text messages exchanged between his wife (through her mobile phone number 08035749290) and Mr. Akinterinwa (through his mobile phone number 08033062131) many of which were composed in abbreviated and shortened words, through which amorous and extra-marital text love messages were exchanged.  The messages are hereafter reproduced:

i)        On 09/ 12/2007 the respondent sent the following to the co-respondent: As d day of hope approaches, when d Lord will save d weak and hepplez 1’s, nd give glory 2 dose who av bin mocked. On dat day, d Lord will give u a name of distictn among d nations of d earth. U will praise d Lord when He restores ur fortune b4 ur eyes according 2 d voice of d Lord. Zeph 3: 19-20. Mrn Luv, takia nd stay blezed. Can’t stop missing you.

ii)      On the same date, the respondent sent the following to the co-respondent:

I’m looking for a word,

I’m looking for a whole new word,

I’m looking for a whole new word,

I’m looking for a word that nobody knows and feel,

I’m looking for a word that says I luv u….

Nd that you are the best thing that ever happen to me


iii)    On 12/12/2007 at 5: 00 am, the co-respondent sent a technologically designed puppy with the accompanying text to the respondent thus: “Am sending you this puppy to keep you company and to bite you if you forget to think about me, good morning Love”

iv)    On 12/12/2007 at 5:00 am, the respondent sent the following to the Co-respondent: “On dis 12th day of d 12th mth, d Lord God who prosper Isaac will prosper u nd make u d envy of odas, 4 he will take u 2 ur Rehoboth, where he has made room 4 u and shall make u fruitful, u will abound, increase nd flourish cos d harvest time of ur blezins is here IJN. Goodmorning, and HAPPY B’DAY dearest heart, long lyf nd prosperity. Bet u tot I’d 4gotten.”

v)      On 28/1/2008, the Respondent sent the following to the co-respondent: “Woteva steps u take dis wk in faith, may u encounter d Lord’s beauty n glory, 4 God can perfect in 1 min wot will take a man 50 yrs. Henceforth may d many promises of God find dere ans in xt thru u nd 4 dis reason u shall say amen 2 d glory of God, 2 Cor 1 vs 20. How r u dearest heart? Sweet dreams.”

vi)    On 28/1/2008 at 6:10 am, the Co-Respondent sent to the Respondent the following: “If you need a FUCK, do not hesitate to call me because am a good FUCK.”

vii)  On 29/01/2008 at 5:00am, the Respondent sent to the Co-Respondent the following: “2day, may u hav an encounter with God such as dat of Isaiah nd go on a ride in 2 d city of heavenly revelations. When u return, every 1 know know u hav just arrived 4 ur arrival will be preceded by abundant grace, glory nd energy IJN. Gdmrn dearest heart, miz u nd need you.”

viii)            On 30/01/2008 at 5:00am, the Respondent sent the Co-Respondent the following: “Msg 4 u, Gdmurn son dis is God! I will be handling all ur problems, anxieties etc 2day. I will not need ur help so av a gud day, Gdmrn dearest heart, I LOVE U.”

ix)          On the same 30/ 01/2008 at 6:00 am, the Co-Respondent sent the following to the Respondent: “Bowun Aresa ko jiire I don’t care. Bowun Orangun Ila ko jiire ABUSEABUSE. Aa jiire bi OLOLUFE? Eni a san e si owo, omo, Alaafia. Riri se e oni duro loruko Jesu.” (Meaning: if Aresa wishes, he may wake in peace, I care not. If it pleases Orangun Ila, he may rise in peace. May today bring you peace and prosperity, your prosperity shall not cease in Jesus’ name.).

x)      On 4/2/2008 at 4:45 am, the Respondent sent the following to the Co-Respondent while the Respondent was at Ile Oluji in Ondo State ostensibly on a visit to her father’s house: “Woke up now nd realised dat ave learnt 2 be patient, humble, hardworking, friendly, loyal, honest and optimistic. But I’m afraid ave still not learnt how 2 stop LUVIN or missing u. Am missing u Badly, Gdmrn, takia nd stay blessed LUV.”


Mr. Fadoju also stated in the petition that despite all the facts stated above, he attended the burial ceremony of his wife’s grandfather in Ile Oluji in Ondo State on the 6th day of December 2008 and while there, he caught his wife and Mr Akinterinwa chatting and hugging at the North gate to the venue. Mr. Fadoju disclosed that he interrupted the rendezvous after which Akinterinwa hurriedly left the venue to mobilize political thugs, hoodlums and miscreants numbering about twenty who unleashed serious attack and mayhem on him.

Fadoju disclosed that he was thoroughly beaten by the thugs who also vandalized the musical instruments of juju musician, Admiral Dele Abiodun thus bringing the party to an abrupt end.

The petitioner averred that the news of the injury inflicted on him spread to Ondo Town, bringing him to shame, ridicule and disrepute. He also disclosed that since the day he was attacked, he could no longer attend any social gathering in Ile Oluji and even Ondo Twon for fear of a repeat occurrence.

Fadoju also stated in the petition that since the fight between him and Akintrerinwa and his cohorts, his wife has increased her intolerable manners against him.

Fadoju also alleged that despite his wife’s refusal to have sexual intercourse with him without the use of condom, she went without his knowledge or consent to a medical doctor at the request of the co-respondent and inserted coil in her private part to prevent her from getting pregnant.

Fadoju is praying the court to dissolve the marriage between him and his wife on the ground that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.

Another ground on which he is seeking the dissolution of the marriage is that his wife has committed adultery with several people including Wale Akinterinwa of Awoseyi Street, near Gboluyi Street He is also seeking an order of the court granting the custody of the children to him.

Though the case has been adjourned twice due to the absence of the trial judge, Justice Bolajoko Adeniji, the next hearing has however been fixed for March, 21.

Street Journal’s investigation also revealed that the former Finance Commissioner had earlier been linked with the crumbling of one marriage. Then it was alleged that a certain lady, Yetunde Abdul had issues with her husband who had noticed that Akinterinwa was always sending her text messages very early in the morning. It was gathered that the marriage eventually packed up.

Kosalabaro: I am worried, very worried for Buhari and Oshibajo.

Okebadan: it's normal for an headless drunkards to be having headache because of increase in the price of the head cap in the market.

Kosalabaro: Meaning?. Some people
don't know when to close the tap of their highly infected mouth . Is it because of what I just said , you now take me to the cleaner?.

Okebadan : Ok, sorry, explain yourself because I don’t understand why some small Nigerian like you has to worry for the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Kosalabaro: I'm worried about the new appointment made by Mr President. Majority of it are from one section of the country.
To me this is sickening. The level of stupidity of some of our educated guys from the south is quite alarming. They are the ones justifying this anomaly called competency of the North over the south in the selection of people to public offices. May God deliver them from their stupidity...Amen

Okebadan: Calm down brother, Nigerians are people who fall out of love easily . Is this not the same you screaming blue murder and ‘Change everywhere’ when I muted war against the idea of tribal leaders? I thought you said the President would have changed by May 29? See, there is no way Northerners will remain in love with Buhari if they can’t find their way back to their rightful position of majority in Civil service and I have a strong feeling that both the young and the elites in the North will still be dragging this who-gets --what till May 29 2019 and that means employments and Federal government jobs will remain a scarce commodity to you guys in the South. So if you like you can pull your angry nails from Buhari's neck and sink them into Bola Tinubu's back. It is the spirit of ‘change’. Things have changed.

Kosalabaro: Are you trying to tell me that it's the boil inside my nose and I must learn how to live with it. So what concern this appointment with Federal civil service or you are trying to use alabukun as love charm.

Okebadan: Here we go again. Knowledge, information and exposure is very important. When you left University in the South , your next line of thinking is to go to Europe and America. You don't know that what you are looking for in "sokoto is inside your sokoto. ". There is enough job in Nigeria that can go round among his citizens. In a country where tribalism is one of the major problem confronting us. The head of Parastatals will employ their own people first before considering the people from other region. Any ministry you have a southerners , Easterners or Notherners as the head, check the number of people working under him. I learnt of an MD , a Pastor in FERMA who employs nearly all his church members . There are some parastatals that majority of the people working there are from particular section of the country. Example, Majority of the people in EFCC are from the North especially Adamawa where their First Chairman come from. . To prevent this malady, that's why the government introduce Federal character to accommodate minority groups. And to be honest with you?. How many Northerners did you see in Europe or America struglling like you. When there is ready made available job in Nigeria, you don't need to go to Europe and wash plate now.

Kosalabaro: Hummmm: I'm just scratching my head like a man with itching bottom. But firstly, we Sotherners are like children such that when we are encouraged in this line, we most times overdo and become unmanageable. You are just open my eyes and I promise to think twice in 2019. When you see a Volksvergin beetle car, you will see that it has a bulging light, you will wonder why this until when you open its back and see fire in it. You are an encyclophidia of knowledge.

Okebadan: Stay calm my brother, to learn from other people experience is not admission to failure rather it's addition of knowledge. We are here to educate each other. No one has monopoly of knowledge. I know very sure Buhari will not steal one kobo from your money, he will try to prevent stealing but he loves his religion and tribe more than any other things. He can never be fair in this two area and he is human, no one is perfect all what we need to do is to learn how to live with it.

Kosalabaro:It’s the truth, like it or not. It is easier for a wife to call a man who provides money for food at home ‘daddy’ or ‘my lord’ than the one his wife has to give subsidy. Every wife loves a cheerful giver, in and out of bed. Too many men these days are too busy doing so many things that they do not notice how dissatisfied and unhappy their wives are. They just move from day to day believing their marriages are perfect just because they are good in bed and are picking the right bills. Great. There’s more to being a husband than just paying the bride price and buying a designer wedding gown. It even goes beyond performing your conjugal duties. Every woman loves a man who leaves her ‘finished’ in bed.

Okebadan : What is the meaning of this early morning sermon, are you an angry bride, or a frustrated groom and then end up in unhappy marriage. ?

Kosalabaro: I'm just expressing my view about your message yesterday as a good citizen of my country. And reacting to your post on single mother is in good direction .

Okebadan : Hummmm. Where I advise people to "Stop discriminating against single mothers, their wives is another man's ex girlfriend. I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom." When a woman walks out of a 10 year old marriage, don’t box her into a stereotype corner and dragged her to Golgotha and nail her to a cross.

Kosalabaro: That's a fantastic write up. You made my day yesterday. Many people don't take a good look at their wives :beneath the designer make up, layers and layers of founda­tion and powder there are internal suffering and agony. Many women have uncommon talent to bottle things up which is why they have enough space on their inside to carry as many as 2 to 4 babies at a time . When she eventually flips her lid, it’s because she’s been logging her pain around for so long. You do not know how long she had been in pain and tried and tried for this not to happen.

Okebadan: The same thing with men. Some wives are in the habit of comparing their marriage. The problems your friend is facing in her marriage are different from yours. That woman you envy may have one big messy marriage and probably wishes she was in your shoes. Many wives can’t even remember the good, old times when they felt on top of the world and believed their husband was the best thing that ever happened to them. They are quick to compare their marriage without thinking that every marriage has a foundation. Some are based on rituals, some on money, some on spiritual binding. And many on naivety. When trouble looms or befalls a marriage or the woman is feeling gloomy, the next practical thing she begins to do is wishing she were somewhere else, some­body else’s wife. They wonders how they ended up where they are . Didn’t their mother warn them? And they almost didn’t marry their husband. They will now realise that their man is not the best and warning their children not to fall into the same trap. Forgotten that there is no perfect husband or wife. Every marriage has a cross, you carry your own cross and I carry my own. If you think your own cross is too big , drop it and go inside to test the remaining cross on ground .You will have cause to thank your star. When things get tough in the home and a marriage seems to be having trouble, the tendency to com­pare our situation unfavourably with another’s is quite high. Any married couple who wants to be honest with themselves will own up, to having fallen into that temptation once or twice.

Kosalabaro: The bottom line is to make God the Alpha and Omega of our marriage. This technicalities you are proven above is easier said than done. Many teachers of marriage but few practice what they teach. See you on Sunday.
