A woman identified as Musilimotu Olashuyi has requested that the court separates her and her husband after she alleged that her husband employed an Alfa to sleep with her for three days for money rituals.
The 48-year old woman claimed that she introduced her husband, Gbenga Olashuyi, 55, to the unnamed Alfa because she used to frequent his mosque for prayers.
She said at some point, the Alfa noticed that Olashuyi’s business wasn’t going well, a situation that made her to introduce the Alfa to him.
However, Musilimotu said, the cleric ended up committing adultery with her, allegedly on the instruction of her husband.
She made the allegations at the Igando Customary Court in Lagos on Wednesday.
“It was with my husband’s consent that the Alfa slept with me for three days,’’ Musilimotu disclosed, while praying the court to dissolve the marriage.
She alleged that her husband had also conspired with the cleric to use her for money ritual.
She narrated to the court,
“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 cleric 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 cleric brought a remedy to cure me.”
Musilimotu alleged further that Gbenga had refused to repay a loan she collected on his behalf in which she stood as the guarantor.
But Gbenga told the court that it was Musilimotu who lured him to buy the coffin for the money ritual to turn their fortunes around.
“My wife and her concubine persuaded me to buy a coffin for money ritual and she brought the cleric to the house.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.
Later, the cleric 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 Alfa’s request, but I declined,” Gbenga claimed.
Gbenga however confessed that he packed Musilimotu’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 case was however adjourned until the 22nd of March by the President of the court, Mr. Akin Akinniyi, and he advised the couple to maintain the peace.
