Ambali Jimoh of Yidi Road, Ilorin, on Tuesday, approached an Ilorin Area Court for divorce on the ground that his wife, Wosilat Ambali, was allegedly “diabolical”.
The 42-year-old husband said that his wife was fond of visiting herbalists seeking for spiritual powers.
“My wife believes so much in fetishism and found solace in visiting herbalists for diabolical powers; she hides unidentified objects in every corner of our room claiming she is protecting the family.”
He also told the court that the defendant was not submissive and did not respect members of his family.
Mr. Jimoh said he got married to the defendant in 2006 and that the marriage had produced two children- Abdul, 5 and Sodiq, 3.
“Every member of my family has turned against me due to her rudeness and non-challant attitude,” he claimed.
The defendant denied the allegations leveled against her, saying: “My husband knows how to frame lies, all what he said is not true.”
She however did not object to the prayer of the plaintiff for divorce.
“I am ready to concede to his wish because I am tired of being enslaved and dying in poverty,” she said.
The Presiding Judge, Mr Quadri Ibrahim, in his judgement, dissolved the marriage.
