A mother of four children, Modupe Oyelade, on Wednesday appeared before a Mapo Customary court in Ibadan, seeking to dissolve her 17 years old marriage to her husband, Aderemi, on grounds over alleged attempt to use her for money rituals.
The woman, a resident of Iyana- church in Ibadan, told the court’s President, Chief Ademola Odunade, that she feared for her life, because the husband had attempted to kill her, so he can make himself rich through money ritual.
She said, “He lied to me that he went to school. He has no certificate to show for it.
“After my husband had frustrated my efforts to further my education at the University, I got assistance from friends and I graduated.”
“He wants to get rich quick and I am his target. I bleed every time I sleep with him. I see sacrificial calabash on my head in my dreams and in the bedroom.”
“Sometimes when we are in bed, my husband does some magical things at midnight that suggests his evil intention towards me.”
“When I saw these signs, I abandoned the home to him, but our Pastor intervened and I returned once more.”
“I eventually packed away, but he traced me about with hired killers who confessed and warned me to be careful,” he said.”
The husband, Aderemi, however, denied all the allegations that was brought before him.
In his testimony, Aderemi said his wife sleeps around with different men, he also said that he has been a responsible father to his children.
The court President, Chief Ademole, in his judgement, dissolved the marriage, he also gave full custody of the children to Mrs Modupe, adding that the husband should pay the sum of 20,000 naira every month to her ex- wife as upkeep, he also told the husband to be responsible for the children’s welfare and their education.
