"I'm Not The Father Of My Wife's Son, I Want Divorce"; Lagos Businessman

A 41-year-old man, Ibrahim Oladeji, has urged an Ikorodu Customary Court, Lagos State, to dissolve his five-year-old marriage over the paternity of the only child of the union.

The petitioner, who resides at the Gberigbe area of Ikorodu, Lagos, told the court that he suspected that his wife’s ex was the father of the child.

“I don’t believe the child belongs to me, he doesn’t look like me, he resembles the other man.

“I have seen them together and thereafter, she became pregnant,” he said.

Oladeji, who described the wife as a troublesome woman and a chronic lair, told the court that she moved out of his apartment about two years ago.

But the 26-year-old wife, Rukayat, denied the allegations and affirmed that Ibrahim was the biological father of the child.

“Truly, he saw me with my ex-boyfriend at an open place and since then he has been suspecting me. Fortunately, I became pregnant thereafter.

“My ex-boyfriend is married to his own wife and we were not in a relationship anymore.

“He has married another wife and my child is staying with his new wife,” she said.

“But I want my son back as I am no longer interested in the marriage.”
