A Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan on Thursday dissolved a 15-year-old marriage between Ismaila Ayoade and Adija over her alleged spiritual retardation.
The presiding president of the court, Mr Ezekiel Ogundipe, said that her refusal to appear in court meant admission of guilt.
Ogundipe said, “It is a pity that Adija suddenly stopped coming to defend herself in a case of spiritual retardation leveled against her.
“I put an end to the relationship in the light of peaceful co-existence.”
Ayoade had earlier told the court that Adija had imposed spiritual stagnation on his wellbeing and progress.
Ayoade said, “I inherited Adija as a widow and has retarded my progress since we had been together.
“Relatives pleaded with me to re-marry her as my late elder brother’s wife.
“I heeded the advice and I have never known peace since I did so.
“My business that was booming before she came into my life suddenly crumbled and before I knew it, I started begging to feed.
“All the spiritual steps I took to resolve it proved abortive as all the spiritualists told me that she is on a mission to see my downfall.
“She also renders anything that could facilitate my spiritual recovery impotent.”
