A trader identified as Sadia Abass in Ibadan has divorced her husband over alleged claims that he stole her underwear for rituals. Sadia petitioned the Court to dissolve her marriage to her husband, Azeez, on Wednesday at the Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan.
According to Sadia, she feared that her life might be in perpetual danger if she continued to live under the same roof with a man planning to use her for something diabolic. The mother of one added that her husband’s attitude had made the marriage miserable and unattractive to her.
“When the ill-treatment reached its peak, I discovered that my underwear suddenly got missing. I checked everywhere but did not see it. He also denied ever seeing it. Three days later, the missing underwear resurfaced where I had checked over and over and I made him realise his evil intention toward me.” She said
Sadia further mentioned that “Only God knows what would have happened or might still happen to me because I have made it clear to him that I will not continue with the relationship”.
Sharing his own side of the story, Azeez said “Every now and then, she nags and packs in and out of the house”.
The court was however left with no choice than to pronounced the marriage dissolved in the interest of peace and harmony.
