Ifeanyi Okpoko has reportedly dragged his former wife, Blessing Okpoko to up to seven shrines, including the dreaded Okija shrine in Anambra State, over property dispute.

The 13-year old marriage suffered a strain and the wife claimed ownership of their landed property, Vanguard reports.

It was gathered that Ifeanyi took her to seven different shrines including Okija shrine in Ihiala, since Blessing claimed that he did not contribute anything to the acquisition of their property that is now the subject of litigation.

He was quoted as saying he went to consult the oracles to decide and punish either of them and their supporters making false claims over the property quickly.

He alleged that Blessing was using her position as a senior bank staff to make some people believe that she owned their joint property, adding that was why he consulted the oracles so that the truth would be established.

It was gathered that Blessing reported the latest development to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fatai Owoseni, who summoned both of them to a meeting over the matter.

While trying to resolve the issue, CP Owoseni reportedly lambasted them for their conduct and wondered whether they had relatives and elders in their communities who could not resolve the issue amicably.
