A Customary Court in Ibadan, Nigeria, has dissolved the marriage a 33-year-old marriage of Mr Jimoh Babatunde and his wife, Jelilat after some shocking revelations by the man.
“My lord, Jelilat confessed to have killed one of our four children in order to eventually eliminate me for reasons which I cannot actually tell.
“Secondly, she put some stuff into my food recently to hypnotise and make me be in servitude to her,’’ he told the court.
“I did all I could to change her for the better by talking to her and reporting her to her parents, but nothing came out of it. “Now, she wants to sniff life out of me,” he also added.
However, the wife Jelilat counter the claims and rejected the divorce on claims that she has no where to go.
The Judge said “The court frowns at any case of threat to life as the one currently been witnessed. “It is abundantly clear that there is something cruel about Jelilat’s disposition, otherwise, no man would want to part ways with a 33-year-old union. “In the interest of peaceful coexistence, the court has put an end to the union between both of you.
“Jelilat shall take custody of the last child aged eight years old and Babatunde shall pay N12,000 for accommodation and an addition N5,000 for the movement of Jelilat’s belongings”
