Lagos - A trader, Raimotu Jubril, on Friday appealed to an Orile Agege Customary Court to dissolve her 24-year-old marriage to Taiwo over an alleged fetish that the man has.

Raimotu, a Lagos resident, said that it was when she complained and insisted that her husband stopped using the substance.
"He beats me at will and does not allow me to go out, neither did he allowed my family to visit me, it was as if I was in prison while in his house.

"My wife denied me sex for one and half years and because of this, I did a love charm to win her back.
