Drama in Court: ‘My husband uses charm on me during sex, I always faint’

There was a mild drama at Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan on Friday when the petitioner Bukola Ejalonibu asked the court to dissolve her 23-year marriage to her estranged husband, Kolawole, on the grounds that he uses magic potion on her whenever he wants to have sex with her.

In her petition, Bukola asked the court to grant her request as thus:

“My lord, my life is in danger. Every time he uses the charms, I faint and have to be hospitalised. Kolawole is a reckless drunk and can kill me,” she said.

She alleged that Kolawole threw her things out of the house and has destroyed her supermarket.

In his defence, Kolawale, said that his wife was an ingrate.

”She wants me dead so that she can inherit my property. I opened a multi-million Naira supermarket for her. I gave her money. My wife is promiscuous,” he alleged.

After hearing testimony, the presiding judge, Chief Ademola Odunade, dissolved the marriage.

Odunade awarded custody of the first two children to Kolawole and the last two to Ejalonibu.

He ordered the respondent to pay N10,000 as monthly maintenance to Ejalonibu.
