My husband cast spell on me, says woman

Share This

divorce-in-nigeriaA Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan  on Thursday dissolved the  four-year old marriage between one Ayishat Adedoyin and her husband, Abdulrahaman, after the former claimed a spell was cast on her to use a Muslim female clothing.

The presiding judge, Mr. Ezekiel Ogundipe, held that there was no longer love between the couple and consequently dissolved the union.

Ayishat had  told the court that Adedoyin had been maltreating her and forcing her to wear the Muslim clothing even though she was not one.

“I did not know when I started wearing the clothing,  I just found it on myself. He must have cast a spell on me. I am not a Muslim, I don’t want to marry him anymore.

 “Besides, he beats me up at will without any reason, he is not  responsible,  he does not cater for the needs of  his children and I,” Ayishat said. But responding, Adedoyin refuted the allegation leveled against him, saying he did not cast a spell on the complainant.

“To be truthful,  she started using the Muslim clothing in my house, but  we had  a mutual agreement that she would do so.

“ I even saw a text message on her cell phone where a man  directed her to move into his house as a  wife.

“She is too quarrelsome; she doesn’t even take to my instructions anymore. I am glad that she is going,” Adedoyin stated.

 The judge ordered Adedoyin to pay a monthly feeding allowance of  N5,000 for the upkeep of their  four-month-old baby.

He also ordered   Adedoyin to produce in court  their  four-year-old child still in his custody on July 25.  The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Adedoyin and Ayishat  are traders and reside at Idikan area of  Ibadan. (NAN)
