“I heard a noise on my door around 12:34 am, that bang woke us up from the bed. They later broke into my house after using an axe to break the iron door.

“They searched the entire house looking for me and after an hour search, when they could not see me, they brought out other members of the family and burnt the entire house including my car and a brand new tricycle parked in the compound to ashes.

“Four of them pointed their guns at my children and wife to stop them from making any attempt to come and rescue me.

“They stayed back to ensure that nothing including me was saved from the property.

“Apart from the building that they burnt, they also burnt my Jeep and a brand new tricycle that was parked in the compound.

“They came by 12:34am and left by 3:17am when they believed that they have accomplished their plans.

“The gunmen stole everything. They made away with my phone and other valuables they could lay their hands on.

“When they left, one of my brothers who rushed to the scene was the one that called the RRS (Rapid Response Squad) who came and took me away from where I had ran for safety while my house was under siege.

“According to my wife, they alleged that I give police information about them which not true.

“The gunmen dressed in black and tied red clothes on their head. They told my wife while they were leaving that I am work for the Nigerian Police and other security agencies.

“That after burning to ashes, in my next world, I will not accept working with the police.

“God knows that I have never used my position as the chairman of PCRC or Vigilante group coordinator against anybody.

” Instead, I have been ensuring cordial relationship between Osisioma Ngwa communities and security agencies and I can tell you that the reason I didn’t die was because that I have never used my position against anyone; my hands are clean. What they want to do is to ensure that I burnt with the house.

“At the moment, I am homeless as we have lost our home and properties. Apart from the clothes my family and I wore to sleep, nothing else came out of that house because they (arsonists) made sure that everything and every room in the house was burnt.

“The loss is heavy and the pain is too much for me and my family to bear.

“We have no roof over our head. We are begging and calling even on well-meaning Osisioma sons and daughters and other spirited individuals to please come to our aid.”

Court dissolves marriage over doubtful paternity

Court dissolves marriage over doubtful paternity

An Igando Customary Court in Lagos State has ordered the dissolution of the marriage between Mr. Jose Salami and Mrs. Sola Jaiyeola, on grounds of the doubtful paternity of their only child.

Vanguard reports that in a petition filed before the court, Salami, a resident of Number 9, Bakare St., Igando, Lagos State, said he doubted the paternity of the only child produced by the union.

“In March 2013, she said she was a month pregnant for me; so, I arranged for a traditional marriage to be done. But to my surprise, my wife put to bed in July of that same year, and when I asked how possible it was, she waived it aside.

 

 

In his judgment, the President of the court, Adeniyi Koledoye, said that it appeared the love between the couple had since perished. He noted that the respondent did not show up in court in spite of several summons.

“There is no doubt that the respondent was in another relationship from which she was pregnant, and perhaps the pregnancy was rejected and she decided to hang it on the petitioner. However, the petitioner ought to have opted out of the marriage immediately he discovered that the paternity of the child was doubtful. It is clear the petitioner was deceived into the marriage by the respondent,” the judge held

Koledoye, therefore, dissolved the marriage and ordered the respondent to pay N200,000 to the petitioner.
