To-Love-to-Hold-26

A housewife,  Abosede Bamgbose, 28, on Wednesday pleaded with a Badagry Customary Court in Topo Garage to dissolve her marriage,  alleging that she was bewitched by her husband, James, for eight years.

Abosede also told the court that there was no longer love in the marriage, adding that a spell was cast on her to win and sustain her love.

“ Sometime in the year 2009, I followed my friend to a wedding party at Ajara Topa, Badagry;  immediately I  saw James, I fell in love with him.

“We dated for two months and I packed my belongings to his residence in Ido-Iroko, Ogun State, without introduction or dowry paid to my parent.



“After two months in his house, I got pregnant without meeting any of his relatives.

“Four months after the pregnancy, he started beating me for no reason.

“I gave birth to a premature baby which died three days later due to his beatings.

“After the death of my child, the beatings continued to the extent that I  fainted one day and I was rushed to the hospital.

“It was in the hospital that I was told that I  was two months pregnant and I had lost it due to the beatings.

“My husband did not visit me in the hospital throughout when I  was hospitalised, my parent paid the bills before I was discharged.

“So, when I got better, I packed my belonging and left his house.

“Since then, I have not seen him and I did not meet his relations.



“James is a herbalist and I know he had put me under a spell when I was living with him,  but it is all over now,” she said.

Abosede said that since about eight years that she left  James, he had not looked for her.

She begged the court to grant her freedom so that she could marry again, adding that James had abandoned her.

Abosede said that when her husband was served with a court summon, he said he was no longer interested in the relationship.

The respondent was, however,  not in court.

The court’s President, Mr Sakirudeen Adekola, adjourned the case till October 18  for judgement.

South Africa: Ex-Mandela cop wins appeal against police minister

Published

on

Major General Andre Lincoln, a policeman chosen by then-president Nelson Mandela to head an elite presidential investigative unit, has won an appeal in a civil case against the police minister in the Western Cape High Court.



Lincoln confirmed on Monday that his appeal, which is related to at least 15 years of legal wrangling, had been successful.

It is not yet clear how Lincoln now plans to proceed with the matter.

The judgment found that Lincoln had not proved a malicious prosecution in terms of some of the charges, that of drunk driving and fleeing the scene of an accident.

However, it said in terms of the remaining charges, which he was previously charged with in a regional court, his claims against the defendant succeeded with costs.

The Minister of Safety and Security was therefore ordered to pay Lincoln’s costs in the appeal, which included the costs of two counsel.

Lincoln previously claimed that he had been involved in highly sensitive investigations, including a suspected plot by cops to kill Mandela at his 1994 inauguration, which he claimed was “covered up”.

He had also previously faced 47 criminal charges and was convicted of 17 of these in 2003.

Lincoln then appealed the conviction and was acquitted on all the charges.

He believed that, due to the critical investigations he was busy with, other senior police officers had set him up and had him criminally charged.
