The criminal case against Nigerian singer, Wasiu Goriola popularly known as Lil Frosh, by his ex-girlfriend, Okeoghene Gift Iyomateire, has been withdrawn from the court.
Recall that in February 2021, Gift went public with the domestic violence allegation and also shared photos and videos of the injuries she sustained after she was attacked by the singer.
Days after he was dropped by the DMW record label owned by Davido, Gift filed charges against Lil Frosh. The case has since been in court since then.
On Monday, March 28, both Lil Frosh and his ex-girlfriend took to their Instagram pages to announce that they have reconciled and proceeded to withdraw the case from court.
Lil Frosh shared a public statement from his lawyer which said
“The above subject matter refers. We are Counsel to Wasiu Goriola also known as Lil Frosh (our client) on whose behalf we write.
This is to notify the public and well-wishers of our client about the development in the criminal charge/suit brought against our client.
On 10th of February, 2021 a criminal charge was instituted against our client which has caused a change in our client’s trajectory. However, it has become imperative that we notify the public and well-wishers that the parties in the criminal suit have reconciled and charges brought against our client was withdrawn on the 14th March, 2022.
Our client does not pride himself in this circumstance and has dearly met up with the family of lyomaterie who has been benevolent in this process. Our Client appreciates prayers and support from Families and Friends during this time. Thank you.”
Gift also confirmed that the case had been settled out of court.
“I want to thank everyone that stood by me throughout the incident between Lil Frosh and I. I will also like to state that the case between I and lil Frosh has been withdrawn from court and we are on good terms. Thank you.”
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.
