Court Dissolves 15-year-old Marriage In Ibadan
A Customary Court sitting in Mapo in Ibadan, on Thursday dissolved a 15-year-old marriage between a mother of two, Olubunmi Faseyitan, and her husband, Kolawole, over ”witchcraft” suspicion.
, Chief Ademola Odunade, President of the court, dissolved the marriage after Faseyitan admitted that she asked a witch doctor to ”tie her husband spiritually to milk him dry”.
The arbitrator ordered Kolawole to pay N6,000 monthly for the children’s upkeep.
Earlier, Faseyitan said:”I never wished death on my husband. All I wanted was to him in bondage and make him sick until he serves his purpose.
”I only told the witch doctor so that people would be convinced that his second wife was responsible for the calamity that befell him.
Earlier, Kolawole, a factory worker prayed for the dissolution of his 15-year-old marriage on grounds that his wife was into black magic.
”I did everything possible to please her. But it was not enough. I abandoned the home to her she confessed to me,” he said.
He tendered the recorded conversation between his wife and the alleged witch doctor as exhibit before the court.
