Paternity palaver: 3 men claim To have fathered 2 kids in Oyo



A woman, Taibat Rahman, who lives in Ibadan , Oyo state capital, has been in the spotlight following a recent development over paternity of two kids.

The identity of the biological father of her two kids is at stake.

It was gathered that there was a dramatic scene on Wednesday as the three men in question had heated arguments and claimed to be the biological father of the children.

Taibat has also confirmed that she had sex with all of them and therefore may not really ascertain and identify the biological father of the kids among the three men while she later claimed that one among them is their biological father.

It was learned that they were all married to Taibat after helping her to clear her debts as demanded by her mother.

Interestingly, they all claimed to have helped her clear the said debts which had made them become qualified to marry her.

Drama began when two men claimed to be the biological father of each of the two kids and before getting a breather from that , another man surfaced and claimed to be the biological father of the two kids.

They made this revelation while appearing on Oriyomi Hamzat’s programme called Kokoro Alate on Agidigbo 88.7 FM in Ibadan on Wednesday.

One of the three men, Sharafa said when he met Taibat, she told him about the debts she owed and he had to sell his working tools to raise money and clear the debts.

However, a few days after they had their first child and held the naming ceremony, someone came and claimed to be the biological father which he found surprising, adding that his wife later exhumed the placenta that was already buried.

‘When I met her mother, she told me that whosoever pays off the debt will have her daughter taken home as his wife. I did and a few days after the naming ceremony of our first child, some people came to our house to claim ownership of the child. So, we were all taken to the police station and the Area Commander asked her who the father of her child was, and she answered that I was the father. So, I was told to go home with my child and wife.

The following day, she exhumed the baby’s placenta claiming that she was threatened and told that she will be embarrassed by the man who earlier claimed to be the biological father of my child over her debt if she didn’t bring the placenta. So, we went back to the Area Commander, and he asked her who the father of the child was again, and she changed her initial statement and said it was the other man who owns the child, and we were all surprised’ he said.

Another man, Oseni also claimed to be the biological father of the second child, disclosing that Taibat lived with him for eight months in 2023 after paying N40,000 from her debt.

He said after conceiving their second pregnancy, she lied to him that she had a miscarriage.

‘I have accepted that the second pregnancy was lost according to what she told me but I want my first child. She should give me my child, I have forfeited all the money I spent on her and her mother. All I want is my child’ he said.

The third man, Rauf, said he was surprised that Taibat had two other men while she was with him but insisted that he is the biological father of the two children.

‘I was surprised by this revelation. I never knew she had other men because we had been together for a long time. However, I am the father of the children’ he said.

Girls among 49 arrested suspects of Yola’s notorious Shila Boys robbery gangs



Police operatives in Adamawa State said on Wednesday that they have made fresh arrests of 49 gangsters identified as Shila Boys.

Shila Boys are mostly teenagers and, in a few cases, adolescents, whose stock in trade is robbing residents of their phones and other handy belongings.

Two of the arrested suspects are girls, a departure from what was long known as Shila Boys being male.

The Adamawa State Police Command, in a statement by the Public Relations Officer, SP Suleiman Nguroje, said recent operations by the command led to the arrest of the suspects.

SP Nguroje said that the operations at identified criminal hideouts and blackspots within the state capital, including areas around Geriyo Junction, Doubeli Junction, Jambutu Aso Rock, Behind Ramat College, and Total Flyover, all in Jimeta, Yola North Local Government Area, led to the arrest of the 47 boys and two girls.

“The Adamawa State Police Commissioner of Police, Dankombo Morris, assures members of the public that the command will continue to employ all necessary resources and strategies to sustain the fight against Shila gangsterism,” the police PRO stated.

DAILY POST reports that the activities of Shila Boys have worsened in recent times to the point that on Tuesday, April 16, 2024, the Adamawa State Deputy Governor, Professor Kaletapwa Farauta, hinted at fresh measures to curb them.

The young criminals have recently been using cars to waylay bag-carrying residents, seize the bags and drive off, as against their known use of tricycles, which they operate as passenger vehicles and rob unlucky residents who enter such vehicles.

They have now also been noticed to include girls among them to deceive people into entering their vehicles since Shila Boys are not known to have girls among them.

Gunmen suspected to be cultists have killed one person at the popular Aroma junction in Awka, Anambra State capital.

The shooting of the youth on Wednesday evening caused pandemonium, causing traders in the area to quickly close their shops and scamper for safety.

The victim, who was said to hail from Amudo Village in Awka, was said to be a tricycle revenue collector who was previously a Keke operator himself.

A source said the assailants trailed him from the Ifite area of the state capital and shot him at close range at a filling station, which serves as a popular bus stop for buses and tricycles.

Business outfits in the area were forced to close shops, and roadside traders abandoned their articles and fled.

The major roads in the vicinity of the incident suddenly became empty, just as many people abandoned their cars and took to their heels.

The lifeless body of the victim was still lying at the filling station at the time of filing this report.

Awka has been witnessing cult-related killings for some time now, with gangs killing their rivals in broad daylight.
