Nigerian international footballer, Kayode Olanrewaju has approached the court seeking ₦1 billion in damages against controversial United Kingdom-based self-styled clergyman, Tobi Adegboyega for emotional trauma, financial loss and loss of goodwill occasioned by his adulterous affair with his (Kayode) wife, Dora Ezinne.

He is also asking the court for an official divorce from his wife.

Kayode plays for a Turkish club.

Dora Ezinne had earlier threatened legal action after accusations circulated on social media suggesting that Kayode is not the biological father of the three children he shares with Dora.

The petition marked Suit Number PET/304/2024 was filed at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja and cited several allegations involving infidelity, financial misconduct, and a dramatic family fallout.

Earlier reports revealed that Adegboyega engaged in sexual affairs with Ezinne who frequently attended orgies, leaving home for extended periods.

In his cross-petition, Olanrewaju claimed that since their marriage in 2013, Ezinne has repeatedly committed adultery, including his earlier claim of an ongoing affair with Pastor Adegboyega. The footballer alleged that his wife’s relationship with Adegboyega has not been discreet, with the pair seen openly attending parties and sharing intimate moments in public.

He also said that Ezinne has had similar relations with other men, which has made it intolerable for him to continue living with her as husband.

The cross-petition also discussed a pattern of financial manipulation by Ezinne. Olanrewaju claimed that Dora diverted significant funds and rental proceeds from properties he purchased, alleging that she is using them to sustain her extravagant lifestyle and her alleged relationship with Pastor Adegboyega.

The plot, according to the lawsuit, included collusion with Dora’s alleged ex-lover, Ugochukwu Igboanugo, who helped her misappropriate property documents.

The footballer further accused Ezinne of abusing alcohol and living a life filled with late-night parties, which contributed to the deterioration of their marriage.

Olanrewaju accused his estranged wife of undermining their joint business ventures. He stated how he incorporated DE-J-S Concept Ltd., intending it to be a vehicle for their investments. However, he alleged that Ezinne exploited this opportunity to siphon funds and benefit from the company’s assets, facilitated by her alleged ties with Ugochukwu Igboanugo.

Olanrewaju’s Cross-petition also mentioned his earlier allegation that Dora abducted their three children and fled from home on 24th March 2024. He said the Directorate of State Security Service (DSS), helped to track her down and was arrested at a hideout in Abuja. He said Dora jumped bail to evade further investigation and she also attempted to secure new passports for their children to relocate abroad.

The footballer mentioned emotional and financial tolls, trauma and losses incurred due to the alleged infidelity, financial misappropriation and misconduct, including the abrupt termination of his international football contract, driven by his need to address the crisis for seeking N1 billion in damages.

Olanrewaju, seeking an official divorce, said he was shocked when he got a credit alert from his father-in-law sometime in May 2024, indicating a refund of the Bride Price paid during their wedding. He said Dora Ezinne later took to social media to declare herself traditionally free as her bride price was refunded.

Olanrewaju asked the court to dissolve his marriage with Ezinne and grant him custody of their children because his estranged wife could not be a good role model for the children of the marriage.

Adegboyega and Dora Ezinne are yet to file any response to Kayode’s cross-petition as of the time of filing this report.

The suit has been adjourned to 24th September 2024 for a hearing.
