The judge granted custody of the two children to Faseyitan.

The arbitrator ordered Kolawole to pay N6,000 monthly for the children’s upkeep.

Earlier,  Faseyitan said:” I never wished death on my husband. All I wanted was to have him in bondage and make him sick until he serves his purpose.

”I only told the witch doctor so that people would be convinced that his second wife was responsible for the calamity that befell him.

Earlier, Kolawole, a factory worker prayed for the dissolution of his 15-year-old marriage on grounds that his wife was into black magic.

”I did everything possible to please her. But it was not enough.  I abandoned the home to her she confessed to me,” he said.

Hew tendered the recorded conversation between his wife and the alleged witch doctor as exhibit before the court.
