My mum told me Sanwo-Olu is my father – Man takes Lagos Gov to court

A man in Delta State, whose name was given as Emmanuel Sanwo-Olu has said the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu is his father.

The 27 year old man made this revelation while addressing newsmen at the surrounding of a Delta State High Court.

The man disclosed that his mum confessed to him that the Governor of Lagos State is his father.

The man declared with confidence that he’s a true son of the Governor, saying “I am the son of Governor Sanwo-Olu.”

He narrated that he got the information from his mother.

He further revealed that his mother told him she gave birth to only him for the Governor before she remarried.

He said: “I just want to see the man as my father.”

He added: “For the past 27 years, I have not seen my father.”

The man revealed that he does “casual jobs” to make ends meet, and take care of his wife and 3 children.

John Aikpokpo-Martins, the lawyer of the man said the matter has been brought before the court.

The lawyer said: “The lawyers to Sanwo-Olu, Templas law firm, had earlier filed a motion to strike out the matter on the grounds that the governor was not ready to wave his immunity.”

“We are expecting that he will do that if indeed, he is sure that he is not the father of the claimant. But unfortunately, he invoked his immunity to say he is immune against law suits and he is not ready to wave it.

“Upon that, they brought the application that the Court should not hear the matter.

“The Court should strike out the matter.”

He further said: “We ourselves, we are not ready.

“I pleaded with the other side to give us time to see if this matter can be resolved.

“Resolved in the essence that if the governor will just wave his immunity and come for a DNA test.

“If he is sure that he is not the father of the boy, why should he be afraid of submitting himself to a DNA?

“We have situation where somebody that’s the claimant who wants to be aware of who he is but he has stated clearly in the case that, he has no family.

“His mother’s family is just half a family.

“They all know that he is the child of a woman and we know culturally, the child of a woman does not belong to that family.

“His rights are curtailed and things like that.

“And he is already having children.

“They need to know who they are.”

The legal practitioner Ajayi said: “From now till the next adjourned date, which is January 17th, let’s see whether morally his conscience can be appealed to or bring himself forward for a DNA text with Emmanuel.

“It does not need to be in the press.

“It can be done quietly.

“Nobody wants to actually make noise with him but he has actually extremely proven very difficult to scientific verification with the claimant.

“If it happens that Emmanuel is not his son, he goes home.

“It’s a very simple thing.

“But if it’s his own, then the young man will be happy that at least, he knows where he comes from.

“By then, he now has the power and authority to go into the Sanwo-Olu family as a member of the family.”
