Boy friend claims paternity of couple’s children
Benjamin Okeke, a businessman in his late 30s has asked the Ajegunle Ifelodun Customary Court Lagos state, to dissolve his holy matrimony with Mrs. Ijeoma Okeke for infidelity .
Okeke in his submission to the court said his wife Ijeoma has been having extra-marital affairs since after their wedlock .
He also claimed that another man is currently claiming the paternity of his two children.
He further stated that for two months he did not see his family and every effort to reach them proved abortive. According to him, “Ijeoma’s friend hinted me of her whereabout in Ajah living with another man”
He continued; “on getting to the place, I gave him the photograph of my wife and baby but to my consternation, the man said I was showing him his wife and baby photograph. I left the place in utter confusion.
“The next morning, my wife came in with the baby and when l asked her, she denied everything and maintained that there was nothing between her and any man”.
Okeke however, stated that he had been a responsible father and husband but was disappointed to discover that his wife was having an extra marital affair with somebody who is now claiming paternity of their two children.
The case adjourned to March 11th 2013.
