Man reportedly marries 2nd wife after telling wife of 10 years that he’s traveling

A Nigerian man is alleged to have taken a second wife’s knowledge and fooled her into believing he was traveling for something casual.

Photos of the man and his new bride were shared on Instagram by riversbrides with the caption; “A beautiful match made in heaven ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜”

But people claiming to know him and his first wife said they have been married for ten years casually told her that he was traveling to Anambra state not knowing that he was going for his own wedding.

He was said to have left home last Friday and did the lowkey wedding on Saturday, only for pictures to surface and leave the wife in shock.

A user ozychris001 wrote; “This is evil and pathetic. This man is married and left his wife on Friday, making her believe that he was only traveling to Anambra State, only to see this๐Ÿ˜ข Men fear God oh!!!!”

In reaction, mz_deraa commented; Yโ€™all bashing this woman is funny!! Did she force herself on the man or drag him out of his house to come wed her. The wife should focus her dragging on her said husband who broke their vow and trust. It actually takes two to tango

Similarly, a businessman, Chuka Emmanuel recently approached a Customary Court in Jikwoyi, Abuja to seek the dissolution of his marriage because his wife secretly married someone else.

He claimed that his estranged partner, Jane got married to another man after moving out of their matrimonial home three years ago and relocating to a new neighbourhood.

The applicant told the court that he has been the one taking care of their three children since she left all of them in 2020. According to Emmanuel, he was able to track Jane to the new place she is staying and discovered she has a baby for her second husband.

He told the court: โ€œMy wife moved out of our house without informing me. I later found her new location, when I got there I realize that she had married another man and already has a baby for him. It is on this grounds that I seek to dissolve the marriage between usโ€.

โ€œI have been the one taking care of the children, I donโ€™t want anyone to poison their minds against me, I beg this court to stop my wife from coming to my house to see my children in my absence. I beg this honourable court to dissolve the marriage and grant me custody of my three sons,โ€ Emmanuel pleaded.
