The 28-year-old gave birth without any complication at the General Hospital, Epe, Lagos State, on Thursday.
Punch Metro had reported that Mosunmola and her lecturer, Dr Seyi Adu, had a sexual intercourse in a hotel sometime in August 2016.
After lecturers, the head of Adu’s department and provost of the health
college tried in vain to mediate in the matter, the case was taken
before the ministry of justice.
An official in the ministry was said to have brokered a deal between the
parties as Adu agreed to be paying Mosunmola a monthly allowance of
The agreement reportedly broke down in March,2017 when Mosunmola
presented a list of baby items which she valued at N50,000. Adu was said
to have turned down the request.
Punch correspondent reported that matters came to a head when pregnant
Mosunmola, who claimed to be an orphan, confronted Adu during a lecture,
which resulted in a fight.
She was said to have reported a case of assault against the lecturer at the Ilese Police Division.
Mosunmola had lamented that she was due for delivery in May, but had yet to procure baby materials.
After Punch Metro tried in vain to reach her since last Monday, a call to her phone eventually sailed through on Thursday.
After exchanging pleasantries, she told our correspondent that she was delivered of a baby boy on Thursday.
She said, “I gave birth to a baby boy this morning (Thursday) at the
general hospital. It was a normal delivery without any complication. I
started labour around 12am (Thursday). I first went to a herbal home,
but when the traditional midwives could not handle it, they took me to
the general hospital around 5am. I eventually put to bed at about
“The leadership of the church, where I have been, staying has shown me
support. They brought food to me this morning. I cannot repay them for
“I called Adu’s family members this morning to break the news to them. I
also called him and he thanked me for turning him to a star. We were
still talking when my phone battery went dead. I used someone’s phone to
call him back and asked him to call me on that phone, but he refused. I
could not charge the phone battery on time due to the power situation
in my area.”
Mosunmola told Punch she owed hospital bills which totalled about N20,000, appealing for support from well-meaning Nigerians.
When a Punch correspondent called Adu, who already had two girls with
his wife, and asked if he was aware of the development, he declined
comment and terminated the call.
The Ogun State Commissioner for Health, Tunde Ipaye, said the committee
set up to investigate the matter had turned in its findings, adding that
it was discovered that the matter had been mediated by the Citizens
Right Department of the Ministry of Justice.
He said, “From investigation, we discovered that the lady was indeed a
student where the lecturer taught. But when the affair started, she had
finished from the school. There was disagreement between them on who was
responsible for the pregnancy. The lady had claimed that another man
was responsible for it, but that she needed money for her upkeep. When
communication broke down between them, she insisted that the pregnancy
belonged to the man.
“She went to report the case at the Citizens Rights Department, Ministry
of Justice, Ijebu Ode. The office mediated with a written Memorandum of
Understanding which was signed by the parties. The man agreed to be
paying her N5,000 every month.
“The man has been fulfilling his part of the bargain since that time.
The lady then demanded N250,000 for accommodation, which was not part of
the agreement, and the man refused. He said if the baby turned out to
be his, he would accept it. These are all documented.
“Although there are ethical issues, their agreement seems to have
negated the ethical concerns because they have also signed the MoU and
the man had accepted to take responsibility, including informing his
A top source at the General Hospital, Epe, confirmed that Mosunmola had been delivered of a baby boy.
“She was delivered of a baby this morning. It was a normal delivery and
there was no problem whatsoever. Both mother and child are in good
