The Lagos State Government on Monday says it has fired a customary court judge, Mr Ishola Razaki Adeyemi, who allegedly dissolved a marriage between a couple and impregnated the wife of the complainant, Olayemi Ayeni.
Ayeni, in a now-viral video was seen recounting his tumultuous ordeal in the hands of Adeyemi; whom he claimed made his life a living hell.
According to him, he had a major dispute with his wife and mother of his kids; Doyin Rukayat Okunnubi, in whose business he had invested N5 million.
The romance became sour when her business flourished and his wife allegedly became rebellious.
The man further accused his wife of infidelity which prompted him to sue to seek a resolution to the crisis.
He said the judge who presided over the marital fracas engineered their divorce and subsequently impregnated his wife.
“I had an issue with my wife. She moved out of the house. She rented an apartment very close to my house. I put five million naira into her business to establish a school, Greatest Kiddies Foundation. So, the success of the business caused a problem in the family. I could not control her again,” he had said in the video.
“So after 10 months, I took her to court, thinking that I’d able to resolve this matter through Alternative Dispute Resolution. The judge, Dr Ishola Azakiq Adeyeni, hurriedly dissolved my marriage and got that woman impregnated three months after the dissolution of the marriage.
“The woman, she’s now carrying nine months pregnancy for that man. What really pained me is that in the ruling, this man denied me access to my children. That I can only see the children at the school premises once a week. The same children now are under his custody; he took over the business I established for that woman. He denied me access from having access to my children, he impregnated the woman now and he still wants to send me to jail.”
Reacting in a statement issued on Monday, the Lagos State Government said the case was investigated by the State Judicial Service Commission; adding that the judge was dismissed afterward.
