"She had on two occasions unknown to me, took me to spiritualists for black powers, which I refused,’’ he said.
Olatoye, who testified in a divorce proceedings, said that his 40 year- old wife was always advising him to seek black powers.
"I caught my wife digging a hole in front of my house and buried many charms.
