An Igando Customary Court in Lagos State has requested the disintegration of the marriage between Mr. Jose Salami and Mrs. Sola Jaiyeola, on grounds of the far fetched paternity of their only kid.
In a request recorded under the watchful eye of the court, Salami, an occupant of Number 9, Bakare St. , Igando, Lagos State, said that he is not sure of the paternity of the child produced.
” In March 2013, she said she was a month pregnant for me; so, I arranged for a traditional marriage to be done. But to my surprise, my wife put to bed in July of that same year, and when I asked how possible it was, she waived it aside. The paternity of the child became worrisome and I summoned her parents to intervene and ask her how possible it is to give birth within five months. Also, when the matter happened, she stopped cooking for me, and I was eating out, thinking she would change, but nothing happened. Communication also seized. If she wanted to tell me anything, she would write it on paper and put it on a table for me to see. In the year 2016, I came home and found out she had moved out with our only daughter, and all efforts to make her come back proved abortive. She switched off her phones and blocked all communications with me. ” He told the court
He further said that she later advised him to continue on with his personal business as she was not keen on the marriage. He encouraged the court to break down the marriage, saying that he was moving toward 50 years and expected to move on.
