Adebayo Bamidele, a clergyman, appealed to a Customary Court sitting in Mapo, Ibadan to dissolve his marriage of 17 years to his wife, Felicia on the account that she was ruining his spiritual calling.

He told the court on Tuesday that his alienated wife, Felicia indulged in incriminating acts that were ruining his calling as a pastor.

In his words, he said, “She makes damaging allegations against me before members of the congregation. “She has rendered me jobless. My members have all left my church,” he said.

Bamidele went ahead to tell the court that he was beaten up on certain occasion by some members of the church following Felicia’s allegations against him.

He said, “Felicia told them that I was using black magic and charms to take away their glory. They beat me mercilessly, tore my clothes, I almost died.“She now claims to own the church. The truth is that we contributed resources to build the church, I have lost my means of sustenance to her evil antics against me,” he said.

Conceding to the suit, Felicia told the court that she made available the sum of Three Hundred and Forty thousand Naira  (N340,000) for the church to take off.

She indicted Bamidele of having an affair with a widow, saying, “They already live together, he must return my part of the investment” “We have members from different places. I later noticed that he was manipulating me spiritually and physically.

“Sometimes, he gives me charms to put under my pillow at night, I saw that my life was no longer the same,” she said.

The President of the court, Ademola Odunade, dissolved the union since both parties were not ready to give peace a chance.
