‘My Wife Is A Witch, Fetish & A Liar’- Man Tells Court
A carpenter, Saheed Oyepeju has told Ile Tuntun Customary Court, Mapo, Ibadan, Oyo State, that he wants to end his 16-year-old marriage to his wife, Toyin, a hairdresser
Saheed in his suit alleged that his wife is a liar, fetish and a witch. He thus prayed the court to terminate their relationship and grant him custody of their four children.
He said: “I detest my wife because she’s fetish and devilish.
“We started having misunderstandings after she had our second child. I took a second wife around this time who became pregnant for me. But my wife sent her packing through diabolical means. She moved in with another man whom she took my pregnancy to. She came back after many years and handed over my child to me.
“I again dated another lady and my wife bragged that she belonged to an occultic group which feast on human flesh and thus threatened to kill my girlfriend. She made her threat real a month after. My girlfriend, without taken ill, died.
“I took yet another wife whom she beat blue-black and sent packing.
“Our home became hot because we were always fighting. She later packed her belongings out of my house and left for her parents’ place at Ikire. She came for the children after a while. I came back from work and met an empty house. I called her to know if the children were with her but she denied ever setting her eyes on them, but I knew she was lying.
“I was advised to make a report at the police station which I did. My parents, worried, decided to pay her parents a visit and make moves at settling our differences.
“On getting there, they met our children playing under the tree.
“My parents spoke with hers parents and did all they could to reconcile us. She moved back to my place with the children but refused to greet me or have any interaction with me.
“The last time we fought, she roughened my shirt, hit me on the chest and cursed me. She later tore my shirt into shreds and vowed to kill me.
“I, therefore, left home, moved into a new apartment and took a new wife.
“I pray for our children’s custody because she has not been taking good care of them. I have never shirked my responsibility of taking care of our children. The last time I went to pay them a visit, the house was surrounded with bush while the children’s hair was overgrown and looking untidy. I had to take them to the barbing saloon for a cut. I later learnt that their mother made them hawk pepper which is displeasing to me,” the plaintiff concluded.http://africanbaze.com.ng/2017/10/25/wife-witch-fetish-liar-man-tells-court/https://i2.wp.com/africanbaze.com.ng/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/wife-1-700x568.jpg?fit=550%2C446https://i0.wp.com/africanbaze.com.ng/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/wife-1-700x568.jpg?resize=150%2C150GISTCourt,Man,Wife
