Spread the love

An Ado-Ekiti Customary Court on Thursday dissolved a 23-year-old marriage between Isiaka Odeyemi and his wife, Feyisola Olapeju.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the marriage was dissolved on grounds of incessant fighting deeply rooted in fetish threats with charms and no rest of mind by the wife.

Odeyemi said his wife was occultic and deeply rooted in fetish things.

He alleged that his wife worships things with alcohol and kola nut which he did not support

According to him, his wife killed her first child and the two children she had for him are not doing well.

The father of two said he suspected that the children were into internet fraud popularly known as ‘ Yahoo Yahoo’.

He alleged that his wife does not give him rest of mind, saying that she was fond of fighting with him.

Odeyemi said he fought with his wife on one occasion and asked her to pack her belongings but the children threatened that he must not send their mother away.

The complainant prayed the court to separate them.

They are blessed with two children namely; Femi Odeyemi (22) male and Taye Odeyemi (19) male.

The respondent said the complainant was her husband and she agreed to marry him and had her first child for him in Abeokuta, saying he was the one that asked her to come back to Ado-Ekiti.

Feyisayo said when she came back; they jointly built a two-bedroom flat.

She said her husband was in support of her religion, saying he takes her to the Ifa temple in the morning and comes to pick her up in the evening.

She said that she was told to worship Ifa and her husband also participated in the worship, insisting they worshipped Ifa together in her room.

Feyisola said when her husband started complaining about the Ifa issue, she returned it to the owner, who told her to worship it.

She said that she gave her husband peace in the house but when she greets him, he will not answer her.

She denied that her children are into internet fraud but said they are doing fine.

The respondent said she did not have relatives in Ado-Ekiti and had been begging the complainant because she wants both of them to train the children together.

The President of the Court, Mrs Foluke Oyeleye, observed that the marriage had broken down irretrievably and consequently dissolved the marriage.

Oyeleye ordered that both the complainant and respondent are free to do as they please because the court could not separate what was not in existence.

She ruled that though the parties had been cohabiting for 23 years, all the requirements of a valid marriage were absent in this relationship.

The Judge said there was no marriage between the parties and they were free to go their separate ways.
