Woman Flees As Husband, Lover Fight Over Baby’s Paternity


A woman, Feyintola Babalola, is said to have gone into hiding following a struggle for the paternity of her baby by her husband and her lover. 

Babalola of Bola Street in the Ebute Metta area of Lagos, reportedly had an affair with one Abiodun Ibrahim and got pregnant before marrying her husband. 

PM Express reports that she had deceived both men with the paternity of the child while she was pregnant. They were said to have supported her with money for her upkeep while she was pregnant. 

Trouble began when she gave birth to the baby and both claimed paternity. Babalola has since handed Ibrahim over to the police, claiming he had raped and abducted his wife and baby. 

Ibrahim denied the accusation, saying she was pregnant with his child before she got married.

The police have charged him before a Magistrate Court sitting in Ebute Metta. His plea was not taken after the prosecutor, Miriam Dauda, pleaded with the court to refer his case to the Department of Public Prosecution for advice. 

AO Ajibade, the presiding magistrate, ordered his remand in prison pending advice from the DPP.
