The estranged husband of the recently sworn-in Chief Justice of Rivers State, Adama Iyayi-Lamikanra, Oladejo Lamikanra, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, last week allegedly took another wife in a secret marriage.
He is said to be secretly got married to one Doris Nwando Okoli.
Iyayi-Lamikanra‘s secret marriage to the 27-year old Okoli which took place last weekend happened to be his third marriage in 23 years.
He is also rumoured to have had an eight years secret relationship with the widow of his former client, an Osun state business mogul who was based in Portharcourt.
But his close associates revealed that he recently dumped the said lady to marry Okoli after promising her marriage and extorting money from her massively.
Okoli, a native of Ufuma in Anambra State was born on 24th February, 1990; almost the same age as Lamikanra’s first daughter, Bolanle Laminkanra who, coincidentally is also a law student at Manchester University in England.
Okoli, the new wife was called to the Nigerian bar in Nov 2014, and was surprised with a brand new car on her birthday on 24th February, 2017 by Lamikanra.
The new bride who flaunts so much wealth and luxury on the social media, show-off her ring from Lamikanra, car, and luxury life style but never flaunted the old man, Lamikanra who is behind all the luxury.
Okoli, who was also a former staff of Ministry of Justice, Port Harcourt, resigned shortly before the marriage in Anambra State, because Lamikanra felt his estranged wife also works with Port Harcourt judiciary.
Investigation revealed that asked Okoli to resign from Ministry of Justice and has relocated her from Port Harcourt to his newly built big mansion in Abuja at 23, Magaji Muazu Crescent Katampe Extension Abuja.
A mansion rumoured, he built from the money he extorted from both his estranged wife the CJ and the widow of his late client, Osun State business mogul, whom he had a secret affair for eight years.
Prior to his secret marriage to Okoli, the 56 years old Lamikanra has been married three times. His first wife, Evelyn whom he was married to for 10years, was his late boss’ former secretary who bore him four children.
He started a relationship with his now estranged wife, the Chief Judge of Rivers state while still married to Evelyn. When Evelyn found out about the affair with his now estranged wife, he and his now estranged wife jointly drove Evelyn away from her matrimonial home and he married the Chief Judge.
They say Karma bids its time, people will eventually face their Karma; what goes around comes back around. After 10 years of marriage to the present Chief Judge of Rivers state, Adama Iyayi- Lamikanra, he finally divorced her last year, after the Chief Judge suspected that Lamikanra had a love child with another woman.
One other reason adduced to his successive failed marriages is his multiple records of domestic violence and serial cheating against his women, a trait linked to hereditary. It was alleged that his late dad did the same thing to his mother who ran away and left his three children at the age of five, three and two years.
The CJ, now 61 years is five years older than Lamikanra. Though. They had no children together. Adama is a widow who lost her military husband several years ago.
The CJ’s appointment by Governor Wike drew a lot of controversy due to the fact that Adama was not from Rivers state but Wike stood his ground, following the recommendation of the National Judicial Council, NJC and the approval of the Rivers State House of Assembly.
