Atiku's Son Remanded In Cell For Contempt Of Court

For disobeying a court order, Aminu, the son of a former Vice-President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, was on Wednesday remanded in the transit cell of Tinubu Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos.

Aminu was alleged to have disobeyed an order made by Chief Magistrate Kikelomo Ayeye on Oct. 11 over the custody of six-year-old Amir Abubakar, who he was alleged to have taken away from the custody of his estranged wife, Fatimo Bolori.

Magistrate Ayeye had earlier ordered the respondent in the suit between U.F. Bolori Vs M.A. Abubakar to produce Amir Abubakar at the first hearing of the case.

According to NAN, when the case came up today for the discharge of “Emergency, Evacuation / Protection Order” made by the court, the court was informed that the parties were planning to settle out of court.

In response, Bolori’s lawyer, Mr Nwabuzor Okoh, denied receiving any notification from the respondent to settle out of court.

Consequently, Chief Magistrate Ayeye cited Atiku for contempt for disobeying the court order.

She ordered that the respondent should be remanded in transit cell and the case stood down pending when he would produce the child.

Both Atiku and Fatimo had divorced in 2011.
The children were living with their mother, Fatimo, with an arrangement that they should be allowed to spend their vacation with their father.


When the children were on holidays in 2013, Aminu requested that they should be released to him to travel abroad for vacation and thereafter, refused to let them return to their mother. Trouble started.
