Sexagenarian Ends Marriage With Wife Over Alleged Witchcraft



An Igando Customary Court in Lagos on Tuesday dissolved the 29-year-old marriage of a 60-year-old trader, Mr Femi Olatunde, who accused his wife of witchcraft.

The court’s President, Mr Adeniyi Koledoye, declared that it was proper for both parties to go their separate ways since they were tired of being husband and wife.

Koledoye held that the court’s decision was in the best interest of the parties as all efforts to reconcile them had failed, leaving the court with no other choice.

“The court hereby pronounces the marriage between Mr Femi Olatunde and Mrs Yemi Olatunde dissolved today.

“Both of you henceforth cease to be husband and wife.

“Each of you should go his or her separate way unmolested; the court wishes both of you well in your future endeavours.”

He held that Olatunde would be responsible for the children’s education and general welfare.

The president ordered the petitioner to pay a severance fee of N400,000 to his wife for her to move on with her life.

Olatunde had earlier told the court that his wife was a witch.

“My wife entered the world of darkness in order to destroy my life.

“She attacked me severally in my dreams which resulted to sicknesses in the physical world.

“Yemi is fetish; she took my picture to a herbalist and some charms were made on it which nearly paralysed me but God intervened.”

The embattled husband said that his wife instigated his children to steal.

“My money always gets missing but the most painful was when my wife colluded with my son to duplicate the key of my room and stole N250,000 a client gave me to do a job.
