Adamu, who resides in Gurku Cassa village, Mararaba, Nasarawa State, testified in court that Lawal was the reason why his wife lost interest in their 15-year-old marriage.
“He gave her a charm and deceived her that it was for protection not knowing that it was a love portion charm.
“My wife went and told her mother about it, and her mother in turn told me.
“I took the matter to the head of our village and there he admitted that truly he charmed my wife,” Adamu said.
In his testimony, Lawal denied the allegations, saying: “I am not responsible for Adamu’s wife leaving him.
