My Husband Took My Name To Herbalist- Divorce-Seeking Wife

A 35-year-old housewife, Bukola Ilesanmi, on Thursday pleaded with an Ado-Ekiti Customary Court to dissolve her 16-year marriage to her husband, Kayode, on grounds of cruelty, being fetish and lack of care for the children.

Bukola, a resident of No. 9, Oke Ureje, Poly Road, Ado-Ekiti, told the court that her husband was fond of beating her every time with cutlass, while accusing her of being a witch.

According to her, Kayode does not take care of the children, adding that he always beat her, describing the beating as a regular experience since they married.


“I recall that my mother once asked me to divorce him because of the beating,” she said.

The mother of four also alleged that her husband was fetish, accusing him of always bringing charms to the house.

“He would threaten to beat me up should I refuse to use the charm. He is fond of taking my name to herbalists, as I confirmed when I saw my name written on a paper inside his pocket,” she alleged.

She said there was a time her husband asked her to bring her clothes to a herbalist but when she refused, Kayode fought her.

She, therefore, urged the court to dissolve the union and award her the custody of the children, ages between seven and 15.

The respondent, Kayode, 45, however, denied all the allegations levied against him by his wife, saying he was not fetish.

He admitted that one of his customers took him to a prophet where he was told that his wife needed deliverance.

Kayode also said there was a time his son was sick and a word of prophecy came to him that the child should take his bath with a special soap, but his wife refused.

“She claimed I wanted to use the boy for ritual. My wife is fond of cursing me, even to the extent of doing so in my shop.

“Presently, things have gone bad and down for me because of her curses. With her around, I am always afraid of coming home; but when she left, I have had peace of mind,” he said.

After hearing from both parties, the president of the court, Mrs. Olayinka Akomolede, adjourned the case until March 7 for judgment.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
