How my husband employed imam to sleep with me for three days

A divorce seeking wife has accused her husband of employing an Islamic preacher to have sex with her for money-making ritual purposes.

The woman, Musilimotu Olashuyi, 48, 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 Alfa 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 Alfa 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 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 Gbenga had refused to repay a loan she collected on his behalf in which she stood as the guarantor.
She said that Gbenga packed out her belonging 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 Gbenga after four years of marriage.
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 Alfa 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.
“Later, Alfa 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.
The businessman accused his wife of infidelity, alleging that Alfa always made love to Musilimotu on their matrimonial bed.
He said he knew about the adulterous relationship when his wife had Alfa arrested and accused the cleric of using charms to rape her.
“The cleric told the police that he did not hypnotise my wife to rape her, saying that it was with her consent that he made love to her on those three occasions,” Gbenga said.
Gbenga 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 President of the court, Mr. Akin Akinniyi, however, advised the couple to maintain the peace while he adjourned the case until March 22 for judgment.

Wuraola Adekunle had sued her husband, Rufai, at the Idi-Ogungun Customary Court, Agodi, Ibadan, on Tuesday, asking for the dissolution of their 15-year marriage.
Wuraola, a resident of Apete, Ibadan, had prayed the court to uphold her request due to her husband’s negligence to take care of her and the three children of the union.
The petitioner told the court that her 78-year-old husband was in the habit of threatening her whenever she demanded money.
Wuraola also said she shouldered the responsibility of school fees, feeding and other needs of the children alone.
In his judgment, the President of the court, Mukaila Balogun, said the evidence of both parties before the court had proved that the union lacked love and care.
Balogun said the court could no longer play a reconciliatory role for settlement of the rift since both parties had agreed to part ways.
He dissolved the marriage and ordered that the three kids of the marriage be in the custody of the respondent “as agreed by the couple. ”
The respondent did not object to the dissolution, but denied the allegation of negligence.
He urged the court to allow the children to be in his custody so that he could effectively take care of them.

I will die, if I give my wife money, man tells court

A 55-year-old fashion designer, Stephen Enebeli, told a lagos Customary Court in Igando area on Thursday that he would die if he gave money to his wife.
Enebeli said this when he responded to a divorce petition by his wife, Eunice, alleging lack of care for his children.
“I stopped giving her money for feeding and school fees of our children when she started living with another man.
“In my tradition, if a woman marries another husband legally or illegally and the former husband still gives her money for the welfare of the children, he will die and I am not ready to die now,” he said.
The respondent said that his wife sent him packing from their matrimonial home and he presently squats with friends.
“Eunice forced me out of her house because I always fight her for leaving the children at home and go to sleep with men,” he said.
According to him, Eunice lacks respect for him just because she has more money.
He begged the court to grant him the custody of the children so that he could train them.
“I don’t want another man to father or train my children while I am alive,” he said.
Eunice had urged the court to terminate their 16-year-old marriage for alleged lack of care.
“My husband is an irresponsible husband and father.
“While he was still living with me, he refused to pay house rent, feeding or school fees of the children, I shouldered all the responsibility.
“I bought him a motorcycle in addition to his fashion designing work so that he can be supportive, but he is just lazy and abandoned the motorcycle,” Eunice said.
The 36-year-old food vendor said that her husband was threatening to poison her.
“Stephen always tell me that he will kill me with poison if I make any attempt to divorce him and that he will marry another wife,” the petitioner alleged.
The mother of three, pleaded with the court to end the marriage that she was no longer in love with him.
Delivering judgment, the court President, Mr Akin Akinniyi, said that the petitioner was adamant despite all mediation from the court and family.
“Since the petitioner insisted on divorce after several interventions, the court has no choice than to dissolve the union in spite of the fact that the husband still claims he loves his wife.
“The court pronounces the marriage between Mrs Eunice Enebeli and Mr Stephen Enebeli dissolved today, both parties henceforth ceased to be husband and wife.
“Both parties are free to go their separate ways without any hindrances and molestation, the court wishes you well in your new journey.
“The custody of the children should remain with their mother,”Akinniyi ruled.

Beyonce father says her light skin boosted career

Mathew Knowles, father of American Singer Beyonce, a.k.a Queen B, says her light skin has helped her to become more famous.
Knowles has been speaking about how racism is still an issue in the music industry, and why he believes his daughter’s music career has been raised by her being a light skinned black woman.
Knowles who managed Queen B’s career up until 2011, was discussing how colourism affects aspiring artists trying to break into the mainstream.
He argued that it’s ‘no accident’ that most black women played on the radio have ‘lighter skin in common’.
Speaking to Ebony magazine on his experiences of racism in the industry, he said: ‘When it comes to Black females, who are the people who get their music played on pop radio? Mariah Carey, Rihanna, the female rapper Nicki Minaj, my kids [Beyonce and Solange], and what do they all have in common?Image result for Singer Beyonce
The reporter replied: ‘They’re all lighter skinned.’
‘Do you think that’s an accident?’ Knowles asked. When the journalist exclaimed: ‘Of course not’ Knowles quipped: ‘So you get it!’
Knowles is promoting his book Racism: From the Eyes of a Child, which discusses race relations from his perspective growing up in the deep South, and his account of some of the most violently racist moments in recent US history.
He also admitted that he thought former wife and Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles, was white when he first met her, because ‘the shade of your Blackness was considered important’ when he was growing up.
‘In the deep South in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s, the shade of your Blackness was considered important. So I, unfortunately, grew up hearing that message,’ he continued.
‘I actually thought when I met Tina, my former wife, that she was White.
Later I found out that she wasn’t, and she was actually very much in-tune with her Blackness.
He explained: ‘I had been conditioned from childhood. With eroticized rage, there was actual rage in me as a Black man, and I saw the White female as a way, subconsciously, of getting even or getting back. There are a lot of Black men of my era that are not aware of this thing.’
Knowles previously managed Destiny’s Child and Solange Knowles.
Beyoncé welcomed twin Rumi and Sir Carter last summer with husband Jay-Z.
The pair already share six-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.

Wife flees home after husband discovers her nude photos with another man

A woman married for 16 years has packed out of her husband’s home after he discovered her nude photos with another man on her mobile phone.
40-year-old Tawanda Kashaya said his wife, Caroline packed out of the house after he confronted her with the nude photos.Image result for Naked picture on phone
He said, “I do not know where she is right now. I have tried calling her number but it is not going through.
“She is calling me with a private number and each time she calls she says I am angry at her because of what she did. I have reached out to her relatives but they are saying they have no idea where she is.”
Kashaya narrated that problems started when he noticed a change in his wife’s attitude, and when he called her attention to it, she challenged him to work hard to improve his sex ‘skills’ since he was no longer hitting the mark, H-metro stated.
“My wife started behaving awkwardly late last year, sometimes, she could sleep across the bed and I had to sleep in the dining room or another spare room.
“A few weeks ago, she failed to turn up for a family get-together party we were having and that is when my first son said ‘mummy has gone home to her parents’.
“I thought she was going to come back, but she did not until I lodged a report with the police,” Kashaya stated.
Kashaya said when his wife returned home, she did not say where she had gone and became uncontrollable until last Thursday when she told him that she was no longer interested in continuing with the marriage.
“I told her if she was no longer interested in me, she had to give me a divorce token because that is our culture. I was stressed and started drinking too much beer,” added Kashaya.

The couple who resides in Abuja have there marriage dissolved at High Court headed by Justice Jude Okeke having satisfied that  Ometu has proved his allegation against his wife beyond reasonable doubt.
“As the petitioner’s evidence is admitted by the respondent, admitted evidence needs no proof.
“The court is satisfied with the evidence of the petitioner, which is reasonable and based on the intolerable behaviour of the respondent, founded on lesbianism and adultery.”
Okeke held that the records of the court revealed that the couple was married on October 12, 2012, at Jos North Marriage Registry, and on October 28, 2013, they had a set of twins.
He noted that they both lived in Abuja until the respondent moved to Jos.
He said based on the evidence of the petitioner, on several occasions, he cautioned the respondent on her behaviour, with which she responded with insult.
“If you don’t like what I am doing, I will quit the marriage and live my life the way I want it,’’ the respondent reportedly said.
Okeke observed that on one occasion when the petitioner visited her in Jos to deliver some food items, money and other things for the upkeep of the children, he did not meet her at home.
He noted that when she was called, the respondent said rudely, ‘If you like, you can keep those things at the gate with the gate keeper and go back to Abuja.
‘I am in a friend’s house and I have decided to sleep over there and nothing can make me come back to welcome you.’
Okeke also observed that on another visit by the petitioner, he was made to sleep in a hotel and was prevented from seeing his children.
He added that when the petitioner called on the respondent, she told him that she had a visitor and would not have him (the petitioner) and the visitor in the house at the same time.
The judge said no reasonable man would be expected to put up with such a woman.
“In the light of the foregoing, the court resolved the whole issue raised above in favour of the petitioner against the respondent.
“It is declared that the marriage between the petitioner and the respondent contracted ..., at Jos North Marriage Registry, had broken down irretrievably as a reason of intolerable behaviour on the part of the respondent.’’
He ordered that the custody of the two children remain with their mother, while the petitioner would have unhindered access to them at all reasonable hours of the day.
