My wife must swear in my village shrine to prove her fidelity – Man tells court

One James Omale on Monday dragged his wife, Yetunde before an Igando Customary Court sitting in Lagos state for alleged infidelity.
The 41-year-old man told the president of the court, Mr. Adegboyega Omilola, that his wife must go to his village and swear an oath to proof her fidelity.

Speaking before the court, Omale said “She left her matrimonial home for a month to an unknown destination.
“In my tradition, when a woman leaves her matrimonial home and wants to come back, she must first go to our village to swear that no man has slept with her.


“My wife left my house without my consent and when she returned, she refused to go to my village instead, she rushed to court to ask for divorce.”

“My wife knows that she is guilty of adultery that is why she is afraid to go to my village to swear,” the self-employed man said, describing his wife as an ingrate.

He said, “I sponsored Yetunde from her 100 level to final year. After her graduation, I lost my banking job and she told me she was not interested in the marriage again.”


Omale begged the court to dissolve the two-year-old marriage.

On her part, 29-year-old Yetunde told the court that her husband asked her to go to his village to make sacrifice.

The mother of one said, “My husband tells me to travel to his village in Benue State to make sacrifice and swear to an oath to prove that no other man had slept with me. He tells me that he always sees a man making love to me in his dream. His elder brother is a herbalist and his wife is currently mad, while his second brother’s wife has been sick for years without solution.

“They cast spell on the wife of his other elder brother who is now a prostitute. I will never be a victim of their evil plan.

“My husband always leaves the house without my knowledge and he will never care to call me. Because of his bad behaviour, I went to stay in my parent’s house,” Yetunde added, begging the court to dissolve the marriage as she was no longer in love.

The court president adjourned the case to September 6 for mention.
