Our Pastor bewitched My Wife - Man tells Court
A trader, identified as Blessing Oziomela, from n. ° 11, Don Linus Street, Ajao Estate, Lagos, in the city council of Agege, used a customary court to dissolve her five-year marriage with her husband Emmanuel Oziomela.
Yesterday's blessing told the court that her husband, Oziomela, mistreated and threatened his life on many occasions.
The petitioner said: "When I realized that I could not live with him that way, and I also realized that my daughter imitated her father's behavior, I had to pack the house in June 2018.
"After I left, he sent me a text message saying that he was only doing me a favor by getting married.
"It is better that I live to care for my children than to be in this violent marriage, and he has not even supported the education of children."
But Oziomela, a 34-year-old trader who lives in one. ° 413, George Crescent, Ogba, told the court that he was the pastor of the church they visited and enchanted his wife.
"The problem started on the day I decided not to go to church anymore, whenever I call the pastor as the cause of our problem, my wife will attack me and cause her problems again." "When he left my house, he sent he handed me the bills for the school fees for the children and I sent money to his bank account.In early October my wife came with eight people who beat me and broke my door, "he said.
He did not plead guilty to all his wife's charges against him and asked the court not to dissolve the marriage.
The president of the court, Ms. Patricia Adeyanju, adjourned the case until December 4, 2018 for a possible alternative dispute resolution.
