Court Orders Ifedayo Olarinde (Daddy Freeze) To Pay N5m For Impregnating Another Man’s Wife.
A High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State has on Thursday 18th February, 2021 ordered that Mr Ifedayo Olarinde aka Daddy Freeze should pay N5m for committing adultery with his lover Benedicta Elechi with whom he bore a son Jason in 2015. Daddy Freeze is to pay the N5m to Benedicta’s husband, Mr Paul Odekina.
The presiding Judge, Hon Justice Akpughunum in a judgment which lasted more than 1.3Omin, ruled that Benedicta’s husband proved his case of adultery against Daddy Freeze and Benedicta through photographic, documentary and electronic evidence and also by the admission of Benedicta Elechi herself. The Judge referred to Benedicta as a ‘self-acclaimed adulterer”.

Freeze’s marriage to Opeyemi collapsed in the course of the extramarital affair and the marriage was subsequently dissolved in 2019 by a Lagos High Court. Early in the extramarital affair, Freeze had gone to the social media to spread the falsehood that his wife was violent and beating him up. It has now been revealed that the theatrics was all part of the crisis he instigated in both his home and the home of his lover Benedicta to justify their unholy relationship.
