She said further that her husband pleaded for forgiveness when he discovered that she had caught him.
She also told the court that there was another time she went to the market and on getting back home, she met her husband and a herbalist buying a black substance in their compound.
Halimat who said she had endured her husband for almost three decades, revealed that the burial of the black substance in their compound has brought negative consequences as things turned upside down for her and the children.
Responding to the allegations, Usman told the court that he had always taken care of his wife and the children.
His words: “My lord, she accused me of being fetish, but I want to tell this court that both of us are fetish. I buried black medicine in the compound so as to get good buyer for my uncompleted building that I wanted to sell off.
“There was a time I was looking for my pair of slippers. I looked for it almost five days. Later when I threatened that I would stop giving our children allowance, one of them told me that he had found the slippers.
“Thereafter, I consulted my spiritual leader who told me that I should recite “Bisimilahi” three times before using the slippers again, ” he told the court.
In her ruling, Alhaja Gafar said the evidence before the court points to the fact that the couple are living like cat and mouse under one roof, which she said was dangerous for co-existence.
