A Customary Court sitting at Ile-Tuntun in Ibadan, has been asked to dissolve a 3-year old marriage after a man alleged his wife was Spreading lies about him to destroy his career as a witch doctor
Isola Gbolagade, asked the court to dissolve the marriage with his estranged wife, Yetunde on the grounds of blackmail and threat to life.
The President of the court, Chief Henry Agbaje, in his judgment on Tuesday held that the court was duty bound to dissolve the marriage because both parties were no longer interested in the union.
He said since both parties had signified their intentions to end the union and they had made up their minds about it, the best thing for the court to do was to end it.
Agbaje ruled, ”In the interest of peace, the union between Gbolagade and Yetunde is hereby dissolved,” he said.
He ordered Gbolagade to pay N7, 500 to Yetunde to enable her resettle in an apartment.
Gbolagade had earlier in a petition filed before the court said he sought for the divorce to prevent bloodshed.
The petitioner said., “My lord, I have no child with Yetunde. She has tarnished my image around town in order to destroy my calling as a witch doctor and to prevent people from seeking remedies to their spiritual problems from me.
“Yetunde is spreading false accusations that I am using my customers’ destiny or glory to enrich myself and aid my profession. She also threatened to kill me.”
While responding to the accusation, Yetunde, who did not deny the allegations said that Gbolagade was a wicked man who abused her.
