A 60-year-old Lagos businessman, Mr Tunji Oyedele, sued to divorce his wife, Romoke over her alleged sexual recklessness and infidelity.
Oyedele told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos, yesterday, that his 55-year-old wife and trader, with whom he had four children, was promiscuous.
He said, “Whenever I travel, my wife brings men into our house; on two occasions, I caught my wife with her lovers in our bedroom.
“On one occasion, I came home unannounced and caught her with one of her lovers in our bedroom. On another occasion, I caught her with another man who she claimed was her pastor. She claimed that the said pastor wanted to take her to a river for a special bath to avert spiritual attack.”
The petitioner further alleged that his wife was fetish and was always in possession of different charms.
He said, “I see different strange objects in my bathing water, food and everywhere in the house. There was a day I entered her room in her absence and saw feathers tied with clothes and other diabolical objects.
“I believe that my persistent illness, which has deferred medical solution, is as a result of her fetish acts. I have been forced to leave my own house because I don’t want to die now.”
Oyedele presented the pictures of the charms as exhibits, and begged the court to dissolve the marriage as he was no longer in love.
Romoke, however, debunked the allegations, and stated that she and her husband had lived in peace until January 2016, when he married a new wife.
