Globacom boss, Dr. Mike Adenuga’s son, Eniola is now at war with his lover and mother of his daughter, Damilola.
The billionaire businessman’s son has been accused of abducting his daughter, Athena. The 28-year-old Eniola in company of some policemen allegedly went to pick up the three-year-old daughter at her school in Lekki, Lagos on Friday, May 18, 2018.
Eniola was alleged to have refused to release the child to her mother despite a court order which reportedly granted him access to the child only on weekends. The duo have been having legal battle for the custody of the child.
In September 2017, a Tinubu Magistrate’s Court gave an interim order, which awarded custody of the child to the mother. While Eniola was given unrestricted access to the child, he was, however, asked to pick her every Friday and return her to the mother on Sunday.
In a petition to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, the Falana and Falana Chambers, which is representing Damilola, said Eniola’s action was “tantamount to abduction.”
The law firm explained that the violation of the court order could result in a breach of the peace, urging Imohimi to bring Eniola to book.
The petition read in part, “On Friday, May 18, 2018, our client dropped off Athena at school (Marymount School, Rachael Nwagwu Street, Lekki) around 8.30am, as usual. About 2pm same day, our client returned to the said school to pick up her daughter. To our client’s dismay, the school told her that Mr Eniola Adenuga in company with some mobile policemen came to the school and forcefully took Athena away without her school bag.
“Our client immediately called Mr Eniola Adenuga to find out why he took the child away without her consent, contrary to the order of court that our client remain in custody of Athena and access given to Mr Adenuga every week from Friday to Sunday in company with Athena’s nanny.”
“Mr Adenuga did not take the calls or respond to message sent to him by our client till date, safe for his one sentence response that he had taken Athena. Till date, our client does not know the whereabouts of Athena and has confirmed from the school that Athena is not in school.”
“Our client is distressed as the conduct of Mr Eniola Adenuga is likely to cause a breach of public peace.”
