A Magistrate Court in Lagos State has ordered that a DNA paternity test be conducted on the daughter of a Yoruba movie star, Ronke Odusanya.
M. O. Tanimola, the magistrate, gave the order on Wednesday when the case was brought before her at Court 8, Samuel Ilori Court House, Ogba, Ikeja magisterial district, Lagos.
The estranged lovers welcomed their daughter in 2019.
The curvy actress and the father of her child, Olanrewaju Saheed, popularly known as Jago, are currently in court for several reasons including the welfare of their daughter, Oluwafifehanmi.
When the matter came up in court on Wednesday, Saheed, through his lawyer, requested the court to order a DNA test to ascertain the paternity of the child, on the grounds of suspicion of infidelity.
The actress and her lawyer agreed to the request on the condition that the DNA fees and other bills be footed by Saheed.
The actress’ lawyer also pleaded with the court to ensure it is a court-supervised DNA test.
Ms Tanimola, ruling, decided on an undisclosed hospital on Lagos Island for the test to be done, and for the results to be sent directly to the court.
She adjourned the case till March 31, for further hearing.
