A 38-year-old nurse, Mrs. Eunice Odidi, told a Lagos customary court sitting in Ajegunle that her husband, Mesheck, was not the biological father of her son.
”When l noticed that my husband could not impregnate me, I advised him to approach a doctor who later confirmed that his sperm count was very low”.
The petitioner said she decided to drag her husband to court in order not to make her child see him as his biological father.
Eunice, who claimed to be a member of the Bible Life Church, also informed the court that she lived together with her husband for three years, but did not get pregnant, adding that she met another man called Sule who impregnated her within three months.
” When l met Sule, l introduced him to Mesheck as my brother, because Mesheck did not know then that I had already got pregnant for Sule”. The wife therefore urged the court to dissolve the marriage and grant her the custory of the child.
Mesheck denied the allegation of low sperm count and told the court he would have sent Eunice packing when he realised that she was wayward.
