Telling his own side of the story, Adolphus said he was left with no option than to marry
another wife, as he had taken his wife of 13 years to various churches and hospitals. According to him, he discussed this option of a second wife with his wife, Ngozi, and even allowed her to find a new wife for him. However, he alleged that the lady his wife Ngozi brought, was not up to his standard, so he told her he was going to the village to get a much younger wife.

PM Express reports that when he arrived Lagos with his new wife, Ngozi was so bitter that she seized the house documents which she destroyed, alongside other valuable properties.

Adolphus who claimed he was arrested by Ngozi’s family members, after he tried stopping her from destroying more things, pleaded not guilty to the one count charge of assault at a court in Ejigbo. He was also granted bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in the like sum, and will be remanded in prison till he met the conditions.

The case has however been adjourned till April 10, 2017.
