A trader, Raimotu Jubril, on Friday appealed to an Orile Agege Customary Court to dissolve her 24-year-old marriage to Taiwo for alleged fetish practice.
Raimotu, 41, of 45 Adealu Street, Orile Agege, a suburb of Lagos said, “My husband is fetish, he robs his male organ with a substance whenever he wanted to make love to me.’’
“He beats me at will and does not allow me to go out, neither did he allow my family to visit me, it was as if I was in prison while in his house. “He comes home late at night and would not tell me his whereabouts. I left his house since 2009 and I want a divorce.’’
The mother of three told the court that her husband was a womaniser and he had married another wife.
Taiwo, 44, a mechanic, who lives at 1, Ilepa Eniola Street, Iyana Ipaja denied being fetish. “My wife denied me sex for one and half year and because of this, I did a love charm to win her back. “The love charm was the substance I used to rob my male organ whenever I want to have sex with her. “I am not a womaniser, it was her non-challant attitude that led me into the arm of another woman,’’ Taiwo said. He told the court that he still wants his wife back and begged for his wife to return. The court President, Dr Kayode Whenu, told the couple to maintain the peace, and adjourned the case till April 5 for further hearing.
