My husband spread charm on my bed to kill me – Divorce-seeking wife tells court
A businesswoman, Maria Yakubu, has dragged her husband, Gana Yakubu, to a Customary Court sitting in Nyanya, Abuja, for allegedly spreading charm on her bed.
She said this in a divorce petition she filed against her husband in court.
“Since we finished building our new house and moved in, my husband and I started having misunderstandings, whenever I come back home, it’s always one problem or the other.
“Sometimes my husband will come home with another woman. Just to get me angry, I never reacted, it was not easy but I kept trying not to react.
“On one faithful day, I came back home and entered my room, and saw a charm on my bed, I confronted my husband and he denied, then I involved the police. My husband later confessed that he was the one that spread the charm.”
The petitioner further begged the court to grant her divorce, saying: “I don’t want to die in this marriage.”
The presiding judge, Shitta Abdullahi, however, adjourned the matter until Aug. 8 for defence
