Mum-of-four Tracy was shocked to discover that her Nigerian hubby of 10yrs left his two kids to secretly marry another woman on Boxing Day.
WHEN her hubby of ten years had to spend Christmas with his relatives in Nigeria, Tracy Akingbogun hoped he’d return with a special gift to make up for their time apart.
David, 43, had sorted out a present — for himself. He had secretly MARRIED another woman in Nigeria on Boxing Day.
Mum-of-four Tracy only discovered the shocking news through a friend months later — and kicked him out.
Heartbroken Tracy, also 43, says: “While I was at home with the kids missing him at Christmas, his present to himself was a new bride.
“I still can’t believe he did that to us after more than ten years together.
“I did some research and saw that the ceremony was a religious one and not a legal one. So he hadn’t committed bigamy.
“His dad had five wives during his lifetime, so I suppose David thought he could do that too.
“But not when he was living in the UK and not when he was married to me.”
Tracy was a single mum to Cameron and Alysia — now 17 and 13 — when she met David in a nightclub while she was on a rare night out in March 2004.
She recalls: “I was watching a group of lads on the pull, but one of them wasn’t. He was just leaning against the bar enjoying himself. He saw me watching him and came over to chat.
“His name was David and he was really kind and gentle. He’d only arrived from Nigeria three months before.”
David moved into Tracy’s home just six weeks later and Tracy was delighted to discover she was pregnant.
Their son Kayodo, now 11, was born in December 2004 and they married two months later.
“From then on he called me ‘Wifey,’ his pet name for me.”
The next year the happy family went to Nigeria to meet David’s relatives.
Tracy says: “They were lovely to us and even went through the traditional ceremony of washing our feet when we arrived.”
