A 32year old trader, Temitope Folorunso, has asked an Ikorodu Customary Court, Lagos, to dissolve her 12-year-old marriage, following  her husband’s attempt to use her for ritual.
According to the petitioner, “My husband tried to use me for ritual that was why I left the house two weeks ago…There was a time he told me that I should follow him to his herbalist to make some atonement for him to be successful in life…last month, he called me and told me that am too old for him,”
According to a local newspaper, the estranged husband, Soji, who is a land developer has denied the claims, urging the court to grant his wife’s wish.
“all she said is not true…she is just looking for a way out. This is not her first time of packing out of the house. I know one of her boyfriends that is promising her marriage. If she wants to leave me, the court should let her go,” Soji told the court.
Presiding the case, the court president, Alhaja Risikat Adesanya, advised the couple on the need for reconciliation and postponed the judgement till May 28 “to enable the couple to seek possible reconciliation,”.
