Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state has filed a counter action that he will not waive his immunity to undergo DNA test as requested by his acclaimed son, Emmanuel.
It will be recalled that Emmanuel had approached the court that his mother told him that the governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu was the same man who impregnated her when he was observing the mandatory one year youth service corps in Warri some years back.
Emmanuel had therefore approached the court that Sanwo-Olu should waive his immunity for a DNA test to determine if he is his father or not.
Emmanuel’s lawyer John Aikpokpo- Martins wrote on his Facebook page after the court proceeding yesterday.
“With Emmanuel Sanwo-Olu at the Effurun High Court today.
Emmanuel the acclaimed son of Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Executive Governor of Lagos State had approached the Delta State High Court claiming that the Governor is his biological father and requested the Governor to waive his constitutional immunity and undergo a DNA test to confirm his (Emmanuel) paternity. Surprisingly and shockingly, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu in response filed processes refusing to waive his immunity and undergo a DNA test.
“The case was adjourned to 17th January, 2023 to hear the objection of the Governor.”
