July 3rd, 2013 – Nigerian Woman Married 2 Men At The Same Time In Lagos

AN Ikeja Magistrate’s Court was told, yesterday, how a woman, Mrs. Adedoyin Ogunmefun, allegedly married two men at the same time.

She was also accused of having children for the two men she allegedly married.

Mrs Ogunmefun, who was arraigned alongside her second husband, before Magistrate B. O. Osunsanmi, over alleged forgery of National Population Commission certificate of birth AO8/NO/0268923 and AO8/NO/0268922 was said to have been married to one Mr. Abraham Okoro, who she had two children for before leaving to have another child for the second husband.

The Police prosecutor, Mr. Benson Emurih, told the court that the defendants presented the forged certificates to Parthcare Laboratory in Oduduwa Crescent, GRA, Ikeja.

He said the offence was punishable under sections 409,363 (3) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria 2011.

The complainant, Abraham Okoro, told Vanguard that he had lived with his estranged wife between 2000 and 2007, adding that the union produced two children namely Kymberly Abieyuwa Adenike Okoro and Bryant Amadin Olamipo Okoro, who were born in Nigeria and US respectively.

He further accused the wife of deserting their marriage for Ogunmefun, who she had a daughter for in 2009.

In addition, Okoro said the accused was told that for her to be accepted back into her matrimonial home, she would perform some traditional rites of cleansing.

His words: “She agreed to demonstrate her love and loyalty and moved back to my house on February 14, 2012 and we started living together again until May 17,2012, when she went to an Ikeja High Court to file for nullification of her marriage with Mr Ogunmefun before Justice Oyewole.’’

Okoro, however, said his wife moved out of his house again on November 3, 2012, noting that she suddenly wrote him a letter through her lawyer, Taiwo and Taiwo, in December 2012 claiming that the two children she had for him were not his.

He said: “On March 26, 2013, I got a court summon, the petitioners were Adedoyin Ogunmefun and Babatunde Ogunmefun, claiming that my children were Babatunde’s children, with a fake DNA result purported to embarrass me and my children, the matter which has long been struck out by a magistrate court sitting in Surulere,” he added.

  6. i truly believe that there is more to the story we need to hear.To me the act of marrying two men at the same time which sociologist called polyandry is not dsyfunction, but rather functional. Although such practice is uncommon in Nigeria. I will advice we hear from the woman to know the social factors that warranted her to indulge in such an uncommon practice.

  7. To me its the first husband dat is À VERY BIG FOOOOL, how can hè allow small girl like Doyin to fool him. Doyin is worst dan her sister Sunmbo Ajaba, ur Mother should b ashamed of her self.

  8. Its not surprising cos when you study d bible you will discover dat its d perilious time. what we need to do right now is to pray that non of us nor our family will be a victim.

    • Why nigerian women are practising foreign country’s life

  9. From a legal point of view … D marriage is void ab initio….d validity of a marriage depends on the provision of the marriage act (matrimonial causes act(McA )in nigeria.
    Section 3 of the McA provides for the following .
    1.single status 2.consent of the parties.3 prohibited degree of consaguinity and affinity4. Law of place of celebration of marriage . 5 . Parties must be of a marriageable age.
    Any marriage celebrated outside the following conditions stated above is void ab initio and av no legal basis. I rep OOU law student…team evergreen

  10. I dont blame them but blame the religion they pratice because if the religion put difference between dressing of marriage and no marriage woman no man will come after her when she as marry to marry her for second time

    if you want to know the hole story my mail

  12. all right!! shut up! guys enough with the critism!! thing about africa is when a woman does this kind of stuffs she is a whore and what about men! do they have serious penalties for men doing this? No!!! I say put gender equality laws against polygamy or leave this woman alone

  13. Did this woman marry the two men together?in one ceremony? or was shuffling between the two men at different times? Nigerian men are confusionitsand always lies to the women in their lives. Has any of you tried to find out what may have prompted her to go from one to the other and back again? did anyone ever ask for the role of these men in her life.’In nigeria women are made desperate because of their quest to be married,mostly for economic and socialreasons and not necessarily for love.Others do so just to have legitimate children. What you all are seeing are the product of Godless principles in society. The enthroned shrine of the worship of money/social status, and many will do anything to attain must be destroyed in that country otherwise this womans situation is going to be childs-play to what will start happening.
