Drama As Wife Gets Husband Arrested On His Way To Marry 5th Wife

 Nigerian based in Canada, Akinbamide Akinrele, has landed in trouble after he reportedly jilted his four wives and children, sneaked into the country to get married to his 5th wife and was arrested before for the traditional marriage, which is coming up on Saturday.

P.M.EXPRESS reports that Akinrele was arrested at his home at Emmanuel Osakwe Street, Oreleope area of Egbeda, Lagos, following report to the Police by one of his wives, Mrs. Bisola, that he abandoned her and their three children since 2000, sent them away from their matrimonial home and failed to provide for the upkeep of their three boys aged, 13, 15 and 17.

He was later charged before the Court for negligence and may likely spend several years in imprisonment if he is tried and found guilty before the Court for the alleged offence.

P.M.EXPRESS gathered that Akinrele was married to Bisola and they had lived several years together before he traveled to Canada for greener pasture and eventually became successful. He was said to have come back to Nigeria and his taste changed dramatically.

He then started abusing Bisola publicly, calling her a prostitute and eventually sent her and their children away from their matrimonial home and got married to three other wives after he had sent Bisola away.

Akinrele was said to have concluded to plans to get married to the 5th wife before Bisola got the information. She then wrote a petition to the Police and Akinrele was trailed and eventually arrested.

He was later charged before the Ogba Family Court for the alleged offence and he pleaded not guilty but informed the Court that he was willing to take care of the children.

The prosecutor, Supol Benson Emerhi, objected for Court to grant him bail saying that he may likely jump bail and return to Canada.

Hence, the Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O Sule-Amzat, demanded for his International passport and stepped down the matter to her chambers for more deliberation on accommodation of the children, who were said to be homeless and about their upkeep.

When P.M. Express correspondent contacted the wife, Mrs. Bisola, she said that she was surprised her embattled husband accepted to take care of the children because he had resisted and boasted that nothing will happen because there is no law in Nigeria.
