Court Bans Islamic Cleric From Marrying 16 Year Old As 9th Wife

A forced marriage between a 16-year-old girl and an Islamic Cleric was on Friday stopped by a Family Court sitting in Akure, Ondo State





The secondary school student, whose name is not given, was said to have fled her home after her parents granted the request of the Cleric identified as Alhaji Yusuf Lateef to marry the teenager as his 9th wife.

She ran away from her parents’ home in Ore, Odigbo Local Government Area to Akure, on the day fixed for the solemnization of their supposed marriage with support from her brother.


Alhaji Lateef had in 2019 approached the girl’s parents to solicit their daughter’s hand in marriage when she was 15, the teenager was said to have turned down the proposal but her parents accepted and fixed a date for the marriage.

On getting to Akure she was taken to the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development where she was sheltered and legal works began to stop the forced marriage.

Alhaji Lateef and the girl’s parents were subsequently arraigned at the Family Court for breaching part three of the 2007 Ondo State Child Rights Law.
The court presided over by Justice Aderemi Adegoroye ordered the immediate return of the girl to her family for proper care and education and warned Lateef to stay away from her.


The court also ruled that Alhaji Lateef be made to sign an undertaking to stay away from her as well as ensure no harm comes her way.

While lauding the ruling, the Ondo State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Titilola Adeyemi, described the ruling as a victory for children in the state.

  2. 16years old? 9th wife? This is absolutely insane of such a man or anyone that will condone such an act. Goodness me!!! Thank God the law acted rightly. This is how they married over five to seven wives and children scatter all over the place and when they can't train them or feed them properly, they force them into arms begging or worse still transport them to neighboring states to fend for themselves. Tell me why won't their psych be damaged? Stupid man.

  10. When I say some parents failed their kids, they will say I'm attacking or judging parents.

    Which parents in their right frame of mind will give their teenage daughter out to a sick Muslim cleric to be his 9th wife.

    God bless that young man for saving his sister's life.

    May greed and wickedness kill that Muslim cleric.

  12. Cleric is a pedophile that should have been sentenced to 25 years to life, the parents accesories to child trafficking and pedoplilia, 25 to life. After they expect everybody to be worshipping African parents. A lot of African parents have cursed their children’s destinies into ineffectiveness when those kids were young or messed up the kids for gain using jazz. They have “chopped their kids life with their own”, making the child to struggle. Run to Jesus, our society is occultism.

  13. Some parents have to die for their children to have a chance at life. FACT.

  14. Na was

    Not all women are mothers
    Not all men are fathers
    Not all parents are parenting

    It is sadly not automatic and some people are too damaged to even be in a relationship talkless of bringing children into the world

    Singles shine your eyes please
    Forget pocket, looks or ukwu some are irredeemable damaged goods
