The search for the fruit of the womb has driven former Miss Lux, Ibidun Ajayi(now Mrs. Ibidun Ituah-Ighodalo) to take extreme steps.
Married to Pastor Ituah Ighodalo (Senior Pastor of Trinity House Church) in 2007 after his first marriage to Lucy-Ann Summer packed up, the couple have been childless, and even though they are ministers of the word, they have searched for the fruit of the womb endlessly.
It would be recalled that Pastor Ighodalo and Lucy’s marriage was not blessed with the “supreme gift” either. Ighodalo was the pastor of the Christ Church Parish of the RCCG, in Gbagada but was forced to quit by the church after he declared his intention to remarry, ten years after his first marriage collapsed.
However, we gathered that following the couple’s failure to conceive and bear children eight years into their marriage, the huge psychological toll made Mrs. Ighodalo to fall prey to fraudulent people.
The couple’s dogs trainer, Abdulkareem Mohammed, security guard, Paul Eke, and one Akeem Makinde-Ewuosi fleeced N10m from her. ibidun
Akeem who was introduced to the University of Lagos alumna as a herbalist and well-versed in magic relating to childbearing by the security guard and dog trainer got N10m from her to perform some rituals, which would enable the former beauty queen to conceive naturally.
But having waited with bated breath for the fruit of the womb for several months, it recently dawned on Mrs. Ighodalo that she has been duped.
Sources said she dragged the fraudsters before Tinubu Magistrate’s Court , claiming they attempted to kill her husband at their 4b Ogun Street, Osborne Foreshore Estate, Ikoyi home.
It was also alleged that the 24-year-old dog trainer, Mohammed had sexual fantasies towards Mrs. Ighodalo, and planned to kill her husband so that the affection she has for her pastor husband will be transferred to him.
