A Christian cleric, Michael Temiloluwa, who said his wife defamed him by calling him a fetish man, on Friday urged a Mapo Customary Court in Ibadan to dissolve his union between him and his wife, Funmilayo.

"Funmilayo has over a period of time tarnished my image that I engage in unholy and fetish things as a pastor.

"She has consistently done this not only in the neighbourhood but in the church as well as at public fora,’’ the pastor told the court.

Temiloluwa said his wife told members of his church that he wanted to use her for rituals.

"I have tried every possible means of correcting her as well as reporting her to her relatives, but it was all to no avail.

"Worst still, she is an unrepentant trouble maker who uses all sorts of evil means to achieve her purpose.

"In fact, Funmilayo has neglected her role as a wife in order to make life difficult for me.

"In her disobedience, she sometimes leaves my home for two months without my consent,” he said.

Funmilayo did not, however, deny referring to him as a ‘Juju pastor’, adding that her husband was not close to her.

"Temiloluwa never sat down with me as a husband to discuss any issue, but prefers going to other people’s homes for unnecessary discussions.”

She also denied making troubles.

The President of the court, Mr Ademola Odunade, directed the couple bring some of their relations and the two children of the marriage to court at the court’s next sitting.

Judgment has been fixed for March 30.
