Man Goes to Court Over Claim of Being Gov. Sanwo-Olu’s son

Starrys Obazei/December 08, 2022.

A 27-year-old man based in Delta State has gone to court to prove that Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is his biological father.

Speaking with newsmen at the premises of High Court 2 sitting in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta, the man who identified himself as “Emmanuel Sanwo-Olu,” said his mother, who hails from Oleri community in the Udu Local Government Area, told him that she had only him for Sanwo-Olu before she married another man for whom she had other children.

He said: “I am 100 per cent sure that I am the son of Governor Sanwo-Olu. I just want to see the man as my father.”

Emmanuel, who told newsmen that he does “casual jobs” to survive with his wife and three kids, stated that for the past 27 years, he has not seen his father.

Counsel for Emmanuel, John Aikpokpo-Martins, also told journalists that the claimant was his client in a case in which the Lagos State governor is a defendant, which came up for hearing before the court earlier on Tuesday, December 6, 2022 in the Suit No. EHC/148/202
