“While she was in my house, she obtained a passport and visa in another man’s (Momodu) name whom she collaborated with to defraud me and escape to the United Kingdom but their visa applications were not granted. They also made attempts to escape to South Africa. All these matters are before the Ogun State Government Citizens Rights Department”. He stated.

Onakoya, alleged further that materials worth of over N50m, while cash payments of N6.485m were made into the wife’s various accounts under different names through his operational estate office in Lagos.
