    Kayode Olarenwaju has filed for divorce from his estranged wife, Ezinne Dora Kayode

    Kayode, who plays for Turkish club Gençlerbirliği, urged a Federal Capital Territory High Court to dissolve his marriage, stating that it has broken down irretrievably.

    The former Manchester City striker, who is also seeking custody of their three children, urged the court to order UK-based pastor Tobi Adegboyega to pay him ₦1bn in damages for the emotional trauma, financial loss, and loss of goodwill caused by his alleged “adulterous affair” with Ezinne.

    Olarenwaju and Ezinne have been engaged in a marital battle following allegations of infidelity, among several issues.

    Earlier this year, Ezinne instituted legal action against her estranged husband.

    In the suit dated March 20, 2024, Ezinne accused Olarenwaju of making baseless allegations of infidelity and witchcraft against her and her mother, adding that Olarenwaju damaged her phone in the process.

    She said, “Upon arriving from Turkey personally and without prior notice to his wife or children, the Respondent rained abuses on the Petitioner and her mother, making baseless accusations of infidelity and witchcraft and trying to force the Petitioner out of her matrimonial home. In the process, the Respondent smashed the Petitioner’s iPhone 15 pro-Max beyond repair.”

    However, in a cross-petition marked PET/304/2024 filed on July 1, 2024, the Super Eagles striker accused Ezinne of repeatedly committing adultery with the UK-based pastor and other men since their marriage in 2013.

    Ezinne and the UK-based pastor are the Respondents and Co-Respondent in Olarenwaju’s cross-petition.

    The Super Eagles striker also claimed in his cross-petition that his estranged wife kidnapped their children, who were later rescued by the Department of State Services personnel.

    He said, “Whilst the Cross Petitioner was still trying to get his facts right and phantom a means to have all the lingering issues resolved, the Respondent, under the guise of going to church on March 24, 2024, abducted the children of the marriage and absconded to an unknown location in Abuja.”
