A 17-year-old marriage between Mr Adewole Agbolade and Mrs Kafayat Agbolade has been dissolved by an Ikorodu Customary Court in Lagos State on Monday after the husband accused the wife of fetish practices.

Mrs Riskat Ekerin, the Court President, said that all efforts to reconcile the couple had proved futile as the petitioner insisted on divorce. Ekerin, however, ordered the petitioner, Adewole, to give the respondent, Kafayat, one of the houses which he built as compensation, as he had earlier promised. She also ordered that the children from the union should remain with the petitioner until the final resolution of the issue of custody by the family court.

Recounting his ordeals, Adewole had told the court on Aug.15 that “I once saw a horn tied with red cloth in my wife’s handbag.” He had also accused Kafayat, aged 35, of making incisions on the head of his five children without his consent or knowledge: “I travelled for two days and before I got back home my wife had made incisions on the head of my five children.

“My children told me after I returned from my trip that she brought an Alfa (Priest) home to do it… She also engages me in fights a lot and curses me every day; please separate us as I don’t want her to kill me,” he said.

The charms were tendered as exhibits before the court. Meanwhile, Kafayat, a trader, did not deny the claims and allegations by her husband: “Truly, he saw charms in my bag, but they were not meant to destroy his life; I used those charms to sell my own market and I never used them to do evil… “I want this court to plead on my behalf; I don’t have anywhere to go. I still want to be his wife,” she had said.
