A Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan, on Tuesday, dissolved a 10-year- old marriage between one Basirat Adeyoyin and estranged husband, Adeyoyin Niyi over an attempted money ritual and marathon sex.
The court also ordered Niyi to be responsible for their education and other welfare.
In her earlier account, Basirat, a resident of Olonsogo-Molete, told the court that she was calling it quits with her husband because “he was making a desperate effort to use her for money ritual’’.
The businesswoman added that she first notice this when her husband did not show any regret after she lost her last pregnancy due to too many sexual activities with him.
“Suddenly in 2018, Niyi came home one night and told me that he received a message that he must have seven-day marathon sex with me without a gap of any day.
“I read no meaning to it and I allowed him until there was a problem.
“Then, I consulted my parents and relatives and from every indication, we discovered that he was trying to use me for money ritual,” Basirat said.
Niyi submitted that his wife was too troublesome for him and was a careless housewife.
“Even if this court would dissolve my marriage, I pray to be given custody of the two children because Basirat cannot take care of them.
“My lord, it was because she often overstays in the market that such a thing could happen,” Niyi added.
