Photos: Chaos as Court grants Ogun state speaker custody of his 8 year old son born by his mistress

There was a shouting match in the Customary Court at Agbeloba area of Abeokuta, Ogun State yesterday which degenerated into a fight following the declaration by the court that an 8 year old son, whose mum is one Iyabo Adedotun, a former mistress of the Ogun state House of Assembly speaker, Suraj Adekunbi (pictured above), be handed over to him. Iyabo had dragged Suraj to court for allegedly threatening her life over their love child.

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.

A weeping Iyabo expressed dissatisfaction at the court ruling, asking if she will ever see her child again.
