Mohammed Aminu Atiku, son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, on Wednesday in Lagos lost the struggle to have sole custody of the two children born to him by his estranged wife, Unmi Fatima Bolori.
Chief Magistrate Kikelomo Ayeye had earlier granted Aminu Atiku interim custody of the two children.
At the resumed hearing on Wednesday, the Chief Magistrate gave custody of the children, aged seven and nine years, to Ms. Bolori following Aminu’s non-appearance for the proceeding that was to determine the final custodial arrangement.
With this decision, the court has granted full custody of the children to the estranged wife, and until the judgment is set aside, the children will reside with Ms. Bolori.
The order added that their mother should enroll the children in schools suited for their educational needs.
The court further gave another order which allows the father right to visit his children and request for the children to spend holidays with him.
He was also ordered to pay for upkeep of the children in the sum of N250,000 monthly starting from this month, as well as effective medical insurance on the two children. (Daily Trust)
