Mr Olanrewaju Aluko disclosed to the court
that he prepared a fake charm for his wife,
Tolu, to swear with that she was not flirting
The defendant made the disclosure on
Thursday, September 15 while testifying in a
“I am not fetish and occultic. I only asked Tolu
to swear with a fake fetish substance which I
prepared to confirm her innocence when I
suspected her to be flirting around.”
Tolu, the complaint, had asked the court to
dissolve their marriage of 16 over Aluko’s
irresponsibility and lack of care for his kids
since their birth.
She also accused Aluko of occultic practices and
threatening her with charms and other fetish
“I left his house with my kids in 2012 when I
could no more cope with his care-free attitude
toward me and the children but he kept on
threatening to kill me with charm.
“I pleaded with this court to separate us but
allow the three children aged 15, 13 and eight
to remain in my custody so that I would
continue caring and monitor the children.
“The court should also order him never to
threaten nor disturb me, but should pay
N20,000 as monthly allowance for the upkeep
of the children,’’ she said.
The President of the court, Mrs Yemisi Ojo,
dissolved the marriage after hearing both
sides and awarded the custody of the children
to Tolu, ordering that the defendant pays the
sum of N10,000 monthly as upkeep allowance.
