Sunday Sun gathered that one of the wives is already late, while the surviving one who blew the whistle about three weeks ago over the secret marriage is said to be nursing a child for the embattled priest.

Speaking on the act that has left him disgraced, Zuni said: “I find it difficult myself to believe what people are saying about me. I will not comment on it now. I will follow due process to invite you for an interview, but I am afraid, the newspaper of the archdiocese, The Cross News, may carry this story before you (Sunday Sun).

The Bishop of Kaduna Archdiocese, Bishop Ndagoso Manoso, confirmed that Zuni, who was his classmate in the Seminary, had a relationship with two women who had children for him, an act considered to be an abomination and a grave sin against the Catholic doctrine.
