A 27-year-old man named Emmanuel Moses has sued the Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu for being is his biological father.
He alleged that his mother, Grace Moses, told him that Mr Sanwo-Olu sired him. He told the court that his mother and Mr Sanwo-Olu had a relationship between 1994 and 1995.
He submitted a 19-paragraph statement that claimed Mr Sanwo-Olu was a staff of a company operating in Delta from 1994 to 1995, stating that Mr Sanwo-Olu impregnated his mother in 1994, adding that his mother lost contact with Mr Sanwo-Olu when relocated from Warri.
According to Mr Moses, his mother told him a Yoruba man, known as Jide Sanwo-Olu, is his biographical father, following his repeated inquiry about the identity of his father.
Mr Moses said when he realised that the person mentioned by his mother has almost exact semblance to the Lagos governor, he tried unsuccessfully to contact Mr Sanwo-Olu. After several failed attempts, he decided to file a lawsuit. He told the court of the hardships he endured having to be raised alone by his poor mother without financial assistance from Mr Sanwo-Olu.
He wants a DNA test to prove his claim and called on the Lagos governor to waive his immunity to agree to a paternity test.
