Since we finished building our new house and moved in, I and my husband started having misunderstanding, whenever I come back home, it’s always one problem or the other.
A businesswoman, Maria Yakubu, on Friday dragged her husband, Gana Yakubu, to a Customary Court sitting in Nyanya, for allegedly spreading charm on her bed.
The petitioner said this in a divorce petition she filed against her husband at the court.
"Since we finished building our new house and moved in, I and my husband started having misunderstanding, whenever I come back home, it's always one problem or the other.
"Sometimes my husband will come home with another woman. Just to get me angry, I never reacted, it was not easy but I kept trying not to react.
"On one faithful day, I came back home and entered my room, and saw charm on my bed, I confronted my husband and he denied, then I involved the police. My husband later confessed that he was the one that spread the charm."
The petitioner further begged the court to grant her divorce, saying: "I don't want to die in this marriage."
The presiding judge, Shitta Abdullahi, however, adjourned the matter until Aug. 8 for defense
