An Igando Customary Court in Lagos has been asked by a civil servant, Adeyemi Jolugbo, 32, to dissolve his four-year-old marriage which he claimed he was forced into by the wife with a charm. Jolugbo told the court that he had come back to his senses and was not willing to continue in such a marriage.

According to him, his wife Bukola, was fetish and was not prepared to abandon fetish acts. The petitioner said that Bukola, 31, took him to a cleric shortly after they met in 2008, for some incantations aimed at luring him into the union. In his words: “When we got there, the cleric brought out two wooden dolls – male and female… He recited some incantations and asked me to say that I will love Bukola, marry her and listen to her forever. As I was saying this, he was tying the two dolls together with a rope… After that he told me to go and throw the two dolls in a river,” he said.

He then continues that since Bukola moved into his house two months into their courtship, he had been giving her anything she requested for, including his ATM cards for withdrawal of huge amounts of money. He says: “If I ask her what she used the money for she will not give me a satisfactory answer… When I was seriously ill, my wife did not take care of me; anytime she came to the hospital it was for my ATM cards.’’ Jolugbo also accused his wife of regularly coming to his office to abuse him and tell his boss that he was irresponsible.

However, responding, Bukola, a graphic artist, admitted that she took Jolugbo to the cleric for the good of their marriage. She also said that she reported her husband to his boss when he refused to come home and urged the court not to dissolve the marriage because “I still loved him’’.

Meanwhile, Court President, Mr Adewale Eko, ordered the petitioner to give Bukola N5,000 weekly for the upkeep of the two children until judgment in the case. Eko adjourned the case to Jan.24, 2013, for further hearing.
