Wande Coal Replies Child Abduction Allegations
Singer Wande Coal has denied child abduction allegations brought against him.
A woman named Temitope had claimed that her son of 10 years was abducted by the singer 8 years ago.
According to the report, she had dropped out of secondary school at 16 after being impregnated by a then 23-year-old Wande Coal.
The mother, Temitope, said she’s been unable to see her child since then.
She claims that Wande Coal and his mother have not allowed her to see her child.
But Wande Coal has debunked Temitope’s account, telling his own side of the story.
According to Wande Coal, Temitope was 20 and not 16 when they met, and said he has never denied her access to the child.
"My parents are respectable and God fearing people, and it is disrespectful for anyone to portray them as Temitope, or blogs and media platforms have portrayed them.
"The only reason I will not press charges is because she is the mother of the child. Temitope, stop telling lies. You have a chance to correct this error. No one has stopped you from seeing the child. No one will. I am focused on my career and building a future for my family and if you truly care about the child as you claim, you and your family should reach out to my family"
"I love my son and this is the kind of madness I work hard to protect him from. I have said enough as these issues are family matters and I want to keep the rest of it that way" Wande Coal said in a press release.
