Judge Impregnates Woman 3 Months After Dissolving Her Marriage As Husband Says, ‘I No Go Gree’

Hmm, things are happening in Lagos o. The details of a
scandal, which led to the suspension of a Lagos State Customary Court Judge,
Mr. Razak Adeyeri, have come out, as the parties in the issue – the estranged
couple and the judge – explained what happened in one of the most controversial
cases in Lagos customary courts in recent times.
Ayeni had alleged that the judge, Mr Adeyeri, hurriedly
dissolved his marriage and later married his wife, Doyin, when they started
having marital problems and approached his court to resolve the issue.
Adeyeri and Doyin got married at the Orile Agege registry in
Lagos on December 31, 2015.

Ayeni, who runs an education advisory company in Egbeda,
Lagos, had initially called for help to get custody of his two children, whom
he said were taken away from him and made to live in the house of the judge.
He said, “When I married my wife, I invested N5m in her
school business. But the success of the business caused problem. I could not
control her again.
“She had to move out of the house and rented an apartment in
our area. After 10 months, I took her to court, thinking I would be able to
resolve the matter through an alternative dispute resolution. But the judge,
Dr. Ishola Adeyeri, hurriedly dissolved my marriage and impregnated her three
months after the dissolution of my marriage.
“What really pained me was that the ruling was obnoxious. He
denied me access to my children. He ordered that I could only see the children
on the school premises once in a week. He took over the business I started with
the woman. He still wanted to send me to jail. He had been using the police to
harass me. He brought the police to my house and I was detained at Abbattoir
Police Division.”
Saturday Punch learnt that Ayeni was later arrested in
February and charged to court for alleged assault and planning to kill Adeyeri.
He said he spent two days behind bars at the Kirikiri Prison
after he was remanded. He was again charged for assault in another court, which
he was unjust.
The day after he was released, he said the police again came
for him and he had to flee his home because he feared for his life.
“He used his office to destroy my marriage. He dissolved my
marriage in February 2o15 and my ex-wife gave birth to his child in March 2016.
That shows he impregnated my wife just three months after he dissolved our
marriage,” Ayeni had said.
But he has finally got custody of his children.
After several phone calls to get Adeyeri’s comment on the
issue, he later sent a text saying, “I am sorry, I am not obliged to talk to
the press.”
When Saturday Punch reached out to Doyin, who is the founder
of Greatest Kiddies Foundation, a private school in Egbeda, Lagos, her own
version of the story was completely different from her ex-husband.
She alleged that Ayeni did not get the custody of his
children legally but that he invaded her school and took the children forcibly.
Reacting to Ayeni’s allegations, the woman told Saturday
Punch that there was no truth in the claims that her ex-husband invested N5m in
her school business.
She said, “We got married about seven years ago, but my
school has been in existence for 12 years. He did not invest a dime in my
“He lied by saying I took his children to another man. He
was the one who threw me out of his house with the children, saying they were
“We started having problems when I had a miscarriage and he
beat me afterwards. He said I had used the unborn child for rituals. He also
took me to court and asked for divorce.”
But when asked if it was the same judge, who ordered their
marriage dissolution that she remarried, she said, “Don’t I have the right to
remarry whoever I like after he divorced me? If I was impregnated by the judge,
was it when I was still in his house? We had separated since 2013. We were
formally divorced February 2015. I remarried in December 2015. I have freedom
to marry whoever I chose to marry.
“He has continued to threaten my life. People in the
neighbourhood can testify to this. I am away from the school now because on
March 1, he came to beat me up in the school. I landed in the hospital. I was
forced to labour on March 8. The very day he wanted to send me out of his
house, he beat me. I have never had a rest of mind since 2013.
“What else does he really want from me? After all, he said
he was not interested in the relationship again. Since he came to forcibly take
the children from the school, I have not set my eyes on my children.”
But the Lagos Judicial Commission seems to have a different
opinion on the issue as Saturday Punch gathered that Adeyeri was recently
suspended after a complaint was lodged against him.
The commission was said to have summoned him and Ayeni,
before deciding that the judge had taken an action that amounted to misconduct.
There are unconfirmed reports that he has been finally sacked.
The spokesperson for the commission, Mr. Moses Akinniyi,
told our correspondent that he was not in a position to either confirm or deny
the dismissal of the judge.
He, however, said that the case was indeed brought before
the commission.
