Man drags ex-wife to court, denies baby's paternity

A Kaduna based businessman, Abdulhamid Yakubu, on Monday denied the paternity of their one-year-old son, dragging his ex-wife before a Shari’a court in Magajin Gari, Kaduna State.

He told the court he had raised the alarm over the paternity of the child when the defendant was still pregnant.

But the ex-wife Maryam Muhammad insisted that the child is his.

She said she gave birth to the child in August, 2021 after they got divorced in March 2021, reiterating that the baby belonged to Yakubu.

But Yakubu insisted the baby could not have been his.

He said, “Even before I divorced her in March 2021, I told her older sister that the baby was not mine because she moved out of our house without my permission.

The judge, Murtala Nasir, ordered the parties to present their guardians in court on September 16 after listening to them.
