Lagos reacts to viral video over alleged wife snatcher in customary court

LAGOS State Government has cleared the wave on a viral video on the social media by one Mr Olayemi Ayeni (the complainant) wherein he alleged that a former Customary Court Member, Mr. Ishola Razaki Adeyemi, has snatched his wife and children.

This was contained in a statement on Tuesday, 5 July, 2022, by Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi,
the Executive Secretary, Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency.

“The attention of the State Government has been drawn to a viral video circulating on the social media space wherein one Mr. Olayemi Ayeni (the complainant) alleged that a former Customary Court Member, Mr. Ishola Razaki Adeyemi, abused his office by exhibiting unprofessional conduct in a customary court case involving the complainant and his wife and proceeded to snatch his wife and children from him.

“The matter which occurred between 2014/2015 was investigated by the Lagos State Judicial Service Commission. The findings of the investigation subsequently led to the termination of the appointment of the Member of the Customary Court.

“It was discovered that the viral video was posted by “Ogbongefriends” sometime in 2016.

“Members of the public are informed that the Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency has attempted to reach out to “Ogbongefriends” through their various social media accounts, but unfortunately, their accounts have not been active since 2018.

“All efforts to reach out to the complainant have also been to no avail.

“We, therefore, use this medium to encourage anyone with useful information about the complainant to please reach out via our social media handles – @dsvrt on Twitter or @dsva on Instagram or call 0813-796-0048.”
