A man identified as Ifeanyi Okpoko has allegedly dragged his ex-wife, Blessing Okpoko to seven shrines, including the dreaded Okija shrine in Anambra State, due to a misunderstanding over ownership of property.
It was learnt that the 13-year-old union became strained when the wife started claiming ownership of the husband’s landed property.
Ifeanyi was said to have dragged his wife to seven different shrines including the dreaded Okija shrine in Ihiala, due to her claims that he did not contribute to the acquisition of the property which is now a subject of a lawsuit.
He disclosed that he decided to embark on consulting the oracles so as to punish either of them making false claims on the property.
Ifeanyi noted that his ex-wife was using her position as a senior bank staff to deceive some people that she owned the property which they jointly owned, stressing that this informed his decision to consult the oracles so as to establish the truth.
The move did not go down well with Blessing as she reported the matter to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fatai Owoseni, who called them to a meeting in an attempt to find a lasting solution to the matter.
It was further learnt that while mediating in the issue, the Lagos State Police Boss reportedly criticized them for their action and wondered why they never took the matter to their relatives and elders in their communities so as to find a lasting solution.
