An Ikorodu Customary Court in Lagos State has dissolved a six-year-old marriage between a herbalist, Fakoya Amos and his photographer wife, Bukola.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN), Amos, 40, had sought dissolution of their marriage over alleged infidelity, troublemaking and child paternity against Bukola.
Dissolving the marriage, the court president, Mrs Funmi Adeola, ordered the couple to maintain peace. She also ordered Bukola to stop bearing the man’s name and return her child to the owner, after a DNA test revealed the true father.
The court president said “since it has been confirmed that the child does not belong to the petitioner, you are hereby ordered to stop parading yourself as his wife.
“The child must be properly taken care of and be taken to his biological father.”
Adeola had, during the hearing, ruled that a DNA test be performed to confirm the paternity of the child.
The herbalist, who resides at UNILAG Estate in Ikorodu, Lagos State, had in February, urged the court to dissolve the marriage, saying he suspected his wife was flirting.
He also said he suspected the only child of the union was not his. The respondent, Bukola, 30, denied the allegations but admitted that she had an affair with another man, which resulted in pregnancy.
The respondent, who also accused her husband of battery, had earlier begged for reconciliation.
