A beans seller, Owoseni Alade, has dragged his wife of 24 years, Emily Alade, before a Customary Court at Agodi, Ibadan, seeking divorce for being fetish.
Alade also accused his wife of being a drunk who lived an adulterous life.
He said that he had caught her with men in hotels on several occasions.
In his testimony on Tuesday before the president of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, the complainant said his wife “loves juju too much.’’
“She depends on charms and was in the habit of performing fetish acts; I did not understand her way of life.
“I have assisted her with over N1 million, apart from the two deep freezers I bought for her to enhance her trade, but she was not contented.
“She is a drunk and used to follow other men to hotels. My patience has reached a climax and I am not ready to tolerate all her shameful acts anymore.
“This honourable court should separate us because I am tired of her bad character but I pray the court to allow me have our three kids in my custody, “ Alade said.
Emily, in her defence, denied the allegations and instead described the plaintiff as “an unrepentant womaniser and irresponsible husband.’’
She accused him of beating her and burning her property when they had a misunderstanding, adding that she was ready for divorce.
The court upheld the dissolution of the marriage as requested by the plaintiff but gave the custody of the three children to the respondent.
Balogun also ordered the plaintiff to pay N9, 000 monthly allowance to support the upkeep of the three children.
