Yisau Adeleke, 43, has been arrested, 9 months after bathing his lover, Morufa Ajoke Odesanya, a 36-year-old mother-of-five, with acid, after discovering that she was married, contrary to her claim of being a widow.
In an interview Adeleke, said: “I had a wife, Ronke, who had two children for me but I later discovered that she had two children for two men before she married me. She also decided that she had had the number of children that she wanted, asking me to look for another woman if I needed more. .
So I started dating Odesanya and she asked me to rent a room for her, which I did. She told me she was a widow with two children. She showed me a man who she claimed to be her brother, but whom I later discovered to be her husband.
She took me to her mother and I took her to my aunt, to introduce her as my wife-to-be. We used to have sex regularly to the level that even during her menstrual period, she would beg me to have sex with her, saying she could not keep off me.
This continued until I came in contact with Magun (thunderbolt) in the course of our affair. It was as if my navel was twisted and I also had a tongue twist. I started feeling dizzy. This made me to raise the alarm and an Islamic cleric came to my rescue by making some incantations.
Though I became a bit relieved, the stomach ache continued and the next thing Morufa said was that she believed that the Magun was the handiwork of her mother-in-law. I asked whether she went to her mother-in-law and for the reason she would want to harm her daughter-in-law’s fiancé since her son was dead. To my surprise, Morufa called me same day and asked about my condition. She then added that she had sex with one Baba Bidemi, and it proved that what I experienced was not Magun. Baba Bidemi was the man she called her brother. I was confused and this made me to decide that I was no longer interested in the relationship if she could deceive me for about two years that we were together. She started begging me
That was when I discovered that she's married. I ended the affair but we were still meeting because I wanted to collect the money I contributed as a member of a group we formed for the purpose of contributing money that we could collect in bulk. .
She collected hers and when I was to collect mine, she said that had given it to her husband to pay FRSC fine. To my surprise, when I saw the husband, he was riding a brand new motorcycle. This infuriated because I felt used and the devil pushed me to an evil act."
Yisua says he regrets his action. Morafa is currently writhing in pain and requires N3 million for corrective surgery. Her real husband is said to have forgiven her and takes care of their children. Meanwhile Yisua is presently in prison and will be re-arraigned in court on November 9th
