During the hearing of the case, Iyabo who is a staff of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, told the court that her former lover of 10 years and baby daddy had failed to live up to his responsibilities and had also prevented her from marrying any other person.
She asked the court to grant a retraining order so Suraj can stop threatening her.
On his part, the speaker through his counsel asked the court to grant him custody of their child. The three-member court panel granted Suraj's wish and ordered that the child be handed over to him.
An angry Iyabo upon hearing the judgement started to shout and insisted she was never going to give up her son. One of her colleagues who tried to protect her and prevent the court from taken her child from her was beaten up. When the situation was becoming more chaotic, the police was invited while NSCDC staff also stormed the court in their number to protect their colleague.
