Lover Boy Sent To Prison For Failing To Marry Lady He Got Pregnant In Lagos

A 43-year old man, Cyril Obinzu has been arrested, charged before a Lagos court and remanded in prison for impregnating a lady and failing to cater for the baby and the mother.

The incident happened at 7 Rasak Avenue in Shasha, Lagos where Obinzu stays. He impregnated Happiness Umukoro but refused to marry her because he reportedly had another woman he had promised to marry. It was gathered that Obinzu was dating Happiness and the undisclosed lady he wanted to marry.

However, Happiness played a fast one on him, he got her pregnant and she informed him about the pregnancy. PM Express gathered that Happiness thereafter urged him to go and meet with her family for formal introduction and marriage.

He reportedly told her that he had no intention to marry her as he already had another lady waiting for him. It was then that Happiness threatened him that either he marry her or go to prison.

Happiness reportedly went to the Police at Area M Idimu Command and reported what transpired between them.

Consequently, Obinzu was arrested and charged before Ejigbo Magistrates court for negligence by failing to supply her necessary needs after impregnating her.

The guy pleaded not guilty.

The presiding Magistrate, Mrs J.O.E. Adeyemi granted him bail in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Obinzu was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail condition.

Happiness now wants the matter withdrawn from court so that they will get married and live as husband and wife. How long will this kind of marriage last? Only time will tell.
