Singer Banky W has reacted to a Federal High Court’s declaration that it was unconstitutional for the federal government to conduct marriages, declaring as illegal and invalid, all solemnisation of unions at the Ikoyi marriage registry, Lagos.

The singer reached out to his wife Adesua Etomi on Monday, drawing her attention to the new development. Banky W wrote:

“So, therefore, Adesua Etomi hey baby mama.”

Following her colleague’s reaction, singer Simi wrote:

“Ngbor Akekunle Gold we have been fornicating?”

Recall that the court presided over by Justice D. E. Osiagor, also held that only the local government marriage registries are empowered to do such by the provisions of the 1999 Constitution (as amended). He submitted that the conduct of marriages and issuance of certificates were statutorily the job of the local governments as provided by the law.

The judge added that the acts of the federal government through the Ministry of Interior, operating marriage registries was beyond their powers and all marriages conducted by federal marriage registries or through their agents were illegal and invalid.
