Gen. Jemibewon To Divorce His Wife, Modupe


General David Medayese Jemibewon (Rtd), the 83-year-old ex-minister of Police Affairs, has gone to court seeking an end to his marriage of over 40 years to his wife, Mrs. Modupe Jemibewon who is in her 70s.

A YouTuber, Adeola Agoro, made the revelation in a video on her account, @SisiAdeolaAgoroOA.


The General is said to have claimed in the divorce suit that he was not legally married to Modupe. He also said he is no longer happy with their union.

He has been separated from his wife for over two years as his children are said to have moved him away from their Abuja home where he used to live with Modupe. They have lost contact since then until she got served the divorce suit recently.

General Jemibewon was married (in 1965) to Comfort Jemibewon (née Oni), who passed away on July 22, 2015 at the age of 70. They had five children – Dele, Femi, Tayo, Bimbo and Yomi.  

He took Modupe as a second wife (in the 70s) while still married to his first wife. General David and Modupe Jemibewon have one daughter together. She got married in 2019.

For the past three decades, Modupe has been synonymous with the Kogi-born General as his wife. They stepped out together at many social functions. She is equally a well-known society woman. Even as recently as the Valentine’s Day in 2021, they both granted a newspaper interview where they spoke sweetly of their love life. It, however, remains unknown what had gone so bad between them.

It was also revealed that Mrs. Modupe has been reaching out to people she thought could help her prevail on the General to have a change of mind. However, the octogenarian General seemed hell-bent in his resolve and he enjoys the full backing of the five children he had from his first marriage.

There had been no love lost between the children and Modupe right from the beginning and she is pointing at their direction for manipulating their dad.
