A DIVORCE-SEEKING COUPLE, IMAM LUKMAN SHITTU, HAS TOLD A GRADE A CUSTOMARY COURT SITTING AT MAPO IN IBADAN, OYO, THAT HIS WIFE WAS ALLEGEDLY IMPREGNATED BY A MEMBER OF THE MOSQUE WHERE HE LEADS PRAYER IN THE STATE.

The Islamic cleric subsequently urged the court to order DNA tests on the three children between him and his embittered wife.
The court gave the order to unravel the mystery surrounding the paternity of the children.
Shittu, who was the respondent in the suit, had in his counter-argument told the court that his wife raised the three children in question through her concubine.
Immediately after making the claim, the court’s President, Mrs S.M Akintayo, ordered the duo to go to a well-established medical centre and carry out DNA tests on the three children to know whether Shittu was their father or not.
“The DNA tests shall be jointly funded by Shittu and Fisayo and the sealed result shall be sent directly by the medical centre to the registrar of this court,” Akintayo said.
She adjourned the suit until May 2 for the presentation of the DNA test and further hearing.
