Feb 20, 2017 – I Got To Know My Husband Laid Magun For Me After I Slept With An Old Man In My Area – Wife Tells Court
A 35-year-old woman, Mrs Fatimah Adebayo today urged an Ikorodu Customary Court, Lagos, to dissolve her 14-year-old marriage to Mr Segun Adebayo, over alleged placement of sexual protective charm called “thunderbolt’’ on her.
NAN reports that the charm is aimed at tracking women’s infidelity in traditional Yoruba setting.
The petitioner, a fashion designer who resides at Macaulay Inside, Baiyeku Road, Igbogbo in Ikorodu, prayed the court to end the union to safeguard her life.
Fatimah further said she had gone through series of assault in the hands of the husband, adding that Adebayo was a threat to her life.
“My husband laid a thunderbolt, known in our local parlance as `Magun’ on me.
“I got to discover through an old man in my area who I smartly lured to sleep with me so he contracted the thunderbolt effect, after making love with me, he tumbled twice and I called for help.
“Besides that, my husband beats me, he does not trust me and he does not take care of our children’s welfare.
“Please save me from this marriage as living with him is now dangerous for me. This is because he can kill me,’’ she said.
When asked to comment on the allegations, Adebayo, 43, prayed the court to allow his counsel speak on his behalf.
The court President Omolara Abiola adjourned the case till March 7 for further hearing.
