My husband connived with an alfa to use me for money ritual -Wife.

A woman seeking to end her four-year-old marriage has claimed that her husband connived with an Islamic cleric to have s3x with her for money ritual purposes.

The petitioner, Musilimotu Olashuyi, told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos State that after she had s3x with the alfa she started emaciating and fell sick.

She claimed she introduced her husband, Gbenga Olashuyi to the alfa because she used to frequent his mosque for prayers.

'At some point, the alfa noticed that my husband's business wasn't going well, so I introduced him to the alfa for prayers and spiritual purposes.

'But my husband connived with the alfa and we started having affairs.

'It was with my husband's consent that the alfa slept with me for three days,'' Musilimotu revealed.

She alleged that her husband had also conspired with the alfa to use her for money ritual.

'Actually, my husband got to know the alfa through me because I always go to his mosque to pray.

'When he told me that my husband's business was not moving fine, I brought him home to meet my husband.

'Before I knew what was happening, my husband had conspired with him to use me for money ritual. It was with my husband's consent that the alfa slept with me for three days.

'After the incident, I started getting sick and getting emaciated and I told the people around me what happened, which led to the arrest of the alfa; but my husband ran away.

'Gbenga resurfaced at the station after the alfa brought a remedy to cure me.'

Musilimotu alleged further that her husband refused to repay a loan she collected on his behalf in which she stood as the guarantor.

According to her, the defendant packed out her belongings from his house last October and stole N1m belonging to her.

Musilimotu pleaded with the court to terminate the union, saying that she was no longer in love with her estranged husband.

But Gbenga however in his narration told the court that it was Musilimotu who said they should buy a coffin for the money ritual to turn their fortunes around.

'My wife and the alfa persuaded me to buy a coffin for money ritual and she brought him to the house,' Gbenga said.

He added that the cleric had told him that God revealed to him that his business was collapsing and that he would make some rituals for him.

'I agreed to make the ritual because truly, my business was not moving well. Since that day, my wife has been coming home with the alfa and with different objects and concoctions for me to drink and have my bath with.

'Alfa later asked me to bring N800, 000 to buy some items for another ritual. He also told me to buy a casket for money ritual, which I will put in a separate room where nobody will enter except me.

'My wife begged me to comply with his request, but I declined,' Gbenga stated.

The businessman accused his wife of infidelity, alleging that alfa always made love to her on their matrimonial bed.

He said he knew about the adulterous relationship when his wife arrested alfa, accusing him of using charms to rape her.

'The cleric told the police that he did not hypnotise my wife before sleeping with her adding that it was with her consent that he made love to her on those three occasions,' he stated.

The defendant confessed that he packed the plaintiff's belongings out of his house.

He also pleaded with the court to dissolve the marriage, saying that he was no longer interested in the relationship.

The court president, Mr. Akin Akinniyi, advised the couple to maintain peace while he adjourned the case till March 22 for judgment.
