47-year-old Grace Moses today, January 17th, 2022 appeared at the Delta State High Court 2 sitting in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area and confirms that Sanwo Olu is the father of her son.
Grace Moses while with newsmen shortly after the Court adjourned the case involving the governor and her son, Emmanuel Sanwo-Olu said, “My message to Sanwo-Olu is that he should come and collect his child. The baby is grown up. He is troubling me. If not for God, I would have been dead by now.”
“The baby is now grown and he’s threatening to kill me if I do not show him his father”.
She said Governor Sanwo-Olu was working with a construction firm at Ubogo Community in Udu Local Government Area at the time.
According to the woman, following her pregnancy Mr. Sanwo-Olu abandoned her and travelled out of the State on the grounds that he was transferred to work in Maiduguri, Borno State.
She added that Sanwo Olu is his son’s biological father as they make love several times not just once.

While noting that it is people that own a child, Emmanuel Sanwo-Olu said he is not after his father because he has money or he is now the governor of Lagos State. He, however, said, “I just want to know that this is my father.”
He said his mother told him how she met his father, Babajide Sanwo-Olu many years ago. “I am not seeing anybody as my father’s relatives. I am bothered about it because my friends are mocking me.”
Meanwhile, the Delta State High Court 2 Sitting in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area have adjourned the matter in Suit Number: EHC/148/2022 to February 13, 2023, for hearing of the application before it.
Earlier, 27-year-old Emmanuel Moses files a law-suit alleging that the Lagos governor is his biological father. He alleged that his mother, Grace Moses, told him that Sanwo-Olu sired him. He told the court that his mother and the Governor had a relationship between 1994 and 1995.
He said, “I am 100 per cent sure that am the son of Governor Sanwo-Olu. I just want to see the man, Sir, as my father.” Emmanuel, who told newsmen that he does “casual jobs” to survive with his wife and three kids, stated that for the past 27 years, he has not seen his father.
He submitted a 19-paragraph statement that claimed Sanwo-Olu was a staff of a company operating in Delta from 1994 to 1995, stating that he impregnated his mother in 1994, adding that his mother lost contact with him when relocated from Warri.
According to Moses, his mother told him a Yoruba man, known as Jide Sanwo-Olu, is his biographical father, following his repeated inquiry about the identity of his father. He said when he realised that the person mentioned by his mother has almost exact semblance to the Lagos governor, he tried unsuccessfully to contact Mr Sanwo-Olu. After several failed attempts, he decided to file a lawsuit. He told the court of the hardships he endured having to be raised alone by his poor mother without financial assistance from Mr Sanwo-Olu.
