Spread the love
Aminu Atiku, one of the sons of former Vice President Abubakar Atiku, has lost custody of his daughter 9 year-old daughter, Ameera Atiku, and a seven year-old son, Aamir Atiku, to his enstranged wife, Unmi Fatima Bolori.

Chief Magistrate Kike Ayeye of Tinubu Chief Magistrate’s Court, Lagos, on Wednesday, granted Bolori full custody of the children after Aminu failed to file a response to her application for child custody.

Chief Magistrate Ayeye made the order following the absence of Aminu and his legal team.

Bolori’s application for child custody, which proposed a ‘statement of arrangement’ for the children, was argued by her counsel, Gloria Albert-Ekpe (Mrs.) and Ethel Okoh of Festus Keyamo Chambers.

Fatimoh had urged the court to order Aminu to pay her N300,000,00 monthly as feeding and maintenance allowance for the kids’ upkeep and N1 million yearly as their clothing allowance.

Bolori also sought an order restraining Aminu from taking the kids “outside the shores of Nigeria for any purpose whatsoever” without her consent.

At the resumed hearing of the matter on Wednesdy, neither Aminu nor his legal team was present in court to announce.

Delivering judgement on the application, Chief Magistrate Ayeye said: “the respondent failed to file a response. In view of the deliberate absence of the respondent and his legal team, I am constrained to make these following orders in default of respondent’s presence and in the best interest of the children to wit:
