She stated further that the twins sustained varying degrees of body injuries as a result of the wicked act melted on them by the landlord.
Upon the report, the area commander in Ijebu Ode, ACP Adeniyi Omosanyin, detailed some policemen to the scene where the two boys who were met tied down on both legs and hands, were rescued and taken to the hospital for treatment.
The suspect who happened to be the landlord of the victims” parents was promptly arrested and taken to the station.
On interrogation, the suspect explained to the police that he was informed that one of the twins excreted within the compound despite his warning that the compound must be kept clean always. When asked to take policemen to where the excreta is, he said the boy had already washed it.
One of the twins is currently on admission at Ijebu Ode general hospital due to injury he sustained while he was being dragged on ground by the suspect.
Confirming the incident, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi who is the spokesperson of the state police command, said the state commissioner of police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered that the case be thoroughly investigated and that the suspect must be arraigned in court as soon as investigation is concluded
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.
