Religious obsession crashes marriage

Meanwhile, previously reported that a man had sought to divorce his wife over her religious obsession.

According to Vanguard, Mr Aku Bakari, who works as a public servant, brought his wife, Mary, before a Customary Court in Nyanya. He accused her of abandoning her duties as a wife and mother and being influenced by a different church.

The man said he tried to persuade his wife to stop attending that church, but she refused. He said he noticed a change in her behaviour and appearance since 2010 when she stopped wearing earrings and necklaces and claimed they were evil.
