Divorce: My wife of thirty-three years killed our child, hypnotised me
Written by Taiwo Adediran on December 23, 2015
A Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan on Tuesday dissolved a thirty-three-year-old marriage over the claim of threat to life made by a retired civil servant, Mr Jimoh Babatunde, against his wife, Jelilat. Babatunde told the court that Jelilat had made two attempts on his life and had even confessed to killing one of their four children.
He said Jelilat put some stuff in his food recently to hypnotise and make him be in servitude to her. Babatunde also described her as insolent, disobedient and lacked any care for him and his children. Jelilat opposed the dissolution of the marriage and denied the allegations but the court held that it was clear the relationship had turned sour and therefore put an end to it.
