“Let me put the record straight. The woman we are talking about, I don’t know whether she was baba’s wife or not. Yes, she had a child for baba but they had been separated for over 20 years.

“She was selling clothes in one of the markets in Lagos. So with her status in Arisekola’s house, I don’t know whether to refer to her as Arisekola’s wife. Again, it is not every woman that bears children for somebody that is that person’s wife. I don’t want to say more than that,” the source who refused to be named said.
