“She intended to run me mad, she is fetish, diabolical and a threat to my life; in fact she killed my senior brother and my father through her fetish ways.

“She almost succeeded in ruining my ministry when she ganged up with my enemies to spoil me before the big personalities that usually come to my church for prayers.”

The pastor also told the court that he had not slept with his wife in the last 11 years because of her bad characters.

Gideon said that he would kill his wife if the court should decline his request to separate them.

However, Olwatoyin Johnson in her defence, objected to the allegations levelled against her and denied ever killing his father and brother-in-law.

The mother of four told the court that her husband abandoned her 11 years ago when he married another woman who had bore three kids for him.

She said, “He neither cared for me nor for the four children of the marriage but was always abusing me whenever he was preaching on the pulpit in the church.

“He accused me of being a witch and possessed spiritual power and I had challenged him to do deliverance for me since he is a pastor.”

She, however, pleaded with the court not to dissolve the marriage for the sake of the children.

Balogun also ordered the plaintiff to be paying N8, 000 monthly as maintenance allowance for the two children that are in the custody of their mother.

He also directed the plaintiff to pay N12, 000 as house rent and N5, 000 as transport fees for the defendant to pack her load from the plaintiff’s house.

The president warned the parties to maintain peace and stay clear of anything that could bring disharmony.

  1. If the pastor doesn't want the woman anymore, he should be brave enough to say so or to give credible reasons, instead of this imaginary and delusional tale that is a common practice among pastors, alfas and witchdoctors in sub Saharan Africa

  2. Pastor after you have married second wife now you know that first wife is not good again. What type of Pastor are you? If your wife is a witch conduct a deliverance for her.
    But we are not to judge God is watching.
