Court Orders Arrest Of Mike Adenuga’s Son Over Child Custody Fight |RN


Samson Folarin

A Tinubu Chief Magistrate’s Court has ordered the arrest of Eniola, the son of a telecommunication’s guru, Mike Adenuga.

The chief magistrate, Mr T.A. Elias, in a ruling on Thursday, August 16, 2018, said the 28-year-old was in contempt of court for refusing to give the custody of his child, Anthena, to the mother, Damilola.

Elias said Eniola should be arrested until he gives “full custody of the subject (Anthena) to the respondent (Damilola).”

PUNCH Metro had reported that Eniola and Damilola dated during which the 25-year-old became pregnant and had the child.

Disagreement allegedly broke out between the duo and their families, resulting in a legal battle for the custody of the child.

Our correspondent had reported that in September 2017, a Tinubu Magistrate’s Court gave an interim order which awarded the 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.

The arrangement was said to have been running smoothly until May 18, 2018, when the father, in company with two policemen, allegedly took Athena from school and failed to return her to the mother.

The Falana & Falana Chambers had written a petition to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, accusing Eniola of abduction.

Mrs Funmi Falana, on behalf of her client, filed an ex parte application on May 25, 2018, seeking the release of the child to the mother.

She said Damilola had been traumatised by the incident, adding that she was afraid for the child’s safety.

The application was granted by a magistrate, Mrs M.R. Osho-Adebiyi, who ordered Eniola to produce the child.

He was further ordered to appear before the court to explain why he should not be charged for contempt of court.

However, Eniola’s lawyer, Victor Amalu, filed a motion on notice on August 7, 2018, praying for a stay of execution of the order.

Amalu also asked that the contempt of court application be set aside.

He said it was not right for orders to be given when Eniola was not represented to defend himself.

Eniola’s application was, however, countered by Falana, who said Eniola was taking the court for granted.

The chief magistrate, Elias, overruled Amalu’s objections, describing the “modus operandi” used by Eniola as “appalling.”

He said, “The applicant (Eniola) on May 18, 2018, in company with some armed mobile policemen, went to Athena’s school and forcefully took her away contrary to the order of court dated September 20, 2017, granting custody to the respondent and access every fortnight from Friday to Sunday to the applicant. As there is no order of court validating this act, it amounts to taking law into his own hand and this on its own attracts sanction which should be expected.

“As the best interest of the child shall be primary consideration, this honourable family court is satisfied with the applicant application….”

The chief magistrate, citing Section 64 of the Lagos State Child Right Law, 2007, gave full custody of the child to the mother till she was 18 years old.

He also gave Eniola “supervised” access to the child, adding that he could only see her every fortnight.

Elias advised the parents to take the child’s welfare seriously and put her development and progress first.

“The continuous refusal of the applicant to produce the subject in court amounts to contempt; bench warrant is accordingly ordered for any police officers to effect his arrest until he purges himself of contempt and gives full custody of the subject to the respondent,” he added.

When our correspondent reached out to Eniola for his reaction to the ruling, he asked for some time to call back.

A lawyer, who claimed to be representing him, Abimbola Eniola, sent our correspondent a Lagos State High Court bench ruling, dated August 17, 2018.

The document showed Eniola as the applicant, while the chief magistrate, Elias, and Damilola, were respondents.

The ruling, signed by Justice E.O. Ogundare, said Amalu’s prayers for stay of execution were meritorious.

It said, “This is an application by way of motion ex parte dated August 6, 2018, praying for the following reliefs.

“1. An order granting the applicant leave to apply for judicial review by way of an order of certiorari to remove the purpose of quashing (a) the ex parte order made on May 28, 2018 in suit no. FCL/10/2016 – Eniola Adenuga vs Damilola Oguns (b) the directive of the 1st respondent at the proceedings of July 25, 2018, directing the applicant to comply with the ex parte made on May 28, 2018, in neglect of an application dated July 5, 2018, seeking to set aside the ex parte order on grounds of nullity and irregularity.

“An order staying execution, further execution or action, enforcement or howsoever giving effect in any manner whatsoever to the ex parte order made on May 28, 2018 in suit no. FCL/10/2016 pending the hearing and determination of applicant’s instant application seeking judicial review of the orders and proceedings in this suit.

“An order staying further proceedings in suit no FCL/10/2016 pending the hearing and determination of the applicant’s pending application, dated and filed on July 5, 2018, seeking to set aside the ex parte order made in the suit on May 28, 2018.

“And for such further orders as this honourable court may deem fit to make in the circumstance.”

Ogundare said after considering Amalu’s applications, facts, exhibits and arguments, the reliefs had merit and were granted.  (Punch)

Putin Attends Austrian Foreign Minister’s Wedding |RN

               Vladimir Putin and Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl dancing

Russian President Vladimir Putin attended the wedding of Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl on Saturday, in a visit that the opposition says has damaged Austria’s reputation for political neutrality.

Putin was one of around 100 guests at Kneissl’s wedding to businessman Wolfgang Meilinger in the picturesque village of Gamlitz in southeastern Austria.

The Russian leader was pictured dancing with Kneissl during the festivities. He also brought a Cossack choir to perform for the newlyweds.

Austrian opposition politicians had criticised the invitation to Putin saying it undermined Austria’s claim to be an “honest broker” between Europe and Russia, with the Green party calling for Kneissl’s resignation.

Russia has been accused of seeking to weaken and divide the EU, notably by maintaining links with populist parties in several European countries.

Hundreds of police officers were deployed for the ceremony and the road from nearby Graz airport to Gamlitz was shut in both directions for Putin’s arrival and departure.

Putin was accompanied to the airport by Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and went straight on to Germany for a planned meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Among the other guests at the wedding were Kurz, of the centre-right People’s Party (OeVP) and Vice-Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache, of the far-right Freedom Party (FPOe).

Kneissl was nominated for the post of foreign minister by the FPOe, which since 2016 has had a “cooperation pact” with Putin’s United Russia party.

Since last December, the FPOe has been in government in coalition with Kurz’s OeVP after a campaign in which both parties ran on an anti-immigration platform.

Putin’s visit comes amid reports of other Western countries becoming warier of intelligence co-operation with Austria because of suspicion that the FPOe and its Interior Minister Herbert Kickl are trying to exert influence on intelligence agencies.

Unnamed intelligence officials told the Washington Post newspaper that police raids on the BVT domestic intelligence agency in February caused particular concern.

“The alarms are going off. What happened in Austria reminds me of what autocrats would do,” one senior European intelligence official told the paper.

Husband Approves Of Wife Marrying A Younger Man As Three Plan To Cohabit

A Finnish woman has started dating a younger man with her husband’s blessing and the trio are already planning how to move in together.

Sarra-Maria Karlstrom-Rantala, 32, was married to her husband, Ville, for a decade when she met Jani, her younger lover reports Mirror UK.

Sarra then decided she was polyandrous and would be married to Ville while dating Jani.

Sarra revealed she lives with her husband for one week and then her lover the next. The trio, who co-own a cafe, hope to move in together soon.

Sarra met Ville at a rock bar over a decade ago and are very happy together. But Jani was brought into their relationship after Sarra met him at a beach while filming a concert where his band was performing.

On her future plans, Sarra said; “Being married to two guys isn’t legal in Finland, so I’m legally married to Ville, and in 2020 I will have a Pagan/Viking ceremony with Jani called Hand Fastening. It’s kind of like a wedding but the priest is our friend.

“We don’t all live together yet, but we hope to soon. We do own a cafe together though.

“At the moment Ville and Jani have their own homes close to each other so I live with Ville for one week and then Jani the next week, and it carries on like so. We spend a lot of time together as a three though.

Meanwhile, Ville’s family members don’t know about the arrangement just yet. (Punch)

Britain’s Biggest Family Expecting Baby Number 21 After Saying 20th Child Would Be Their Last

Britain’s biggest family are expecting baby number 21 just months after saying their 20th child would be their last. Sue and Noel Radford revealed the news on their YouTube channel and an ultrasound of the unborn baby girl on Instagram.The Mirror reports that when the couple welcomed their 8lb 6oz son Archie in September last year, they swore he would be their last and were happy to finish on a “nice even number”.

But eight months on the family is set to get even bigger with a daughter who will be almost 30 years younger than her oldest sibling.

Sue, 43, and Noel, 47, who also have three grandchildren, wrote to their 47,000 followers on Instagram: “We can’t wait to welcome you into the family precious little one.”

In their YouTube video, Sue tells the camera as she’s in the car with some of her children: “We’re just on the way home from having a very special, lovely appointment.

“And I’m just wondering if anybody can guess where we’ve been. I bet you can.”

The clip then cuts to Sue at home as she shows off her baby bump.

Sue and Noel, from Morecambe, Lancashire, then fire pink confetti into the air in the family’s back garden to reveal they’re expecting a girl.

Noel says later: “I can’t believe it, a girl. I think we’re in shock. We were not expecting it.”

The parents, whose family featured in the reality programme ’20 Kids And Counting’, say they do not claim any extra state benefits aside from the regular child benefit.

Sue and Noel have been having children for the better part of three decades.

They are already parents to Chris, 29, Sophie, 24, Chloe, 22, Jack, 21, Daniel, 19, Luke, 17, Millie, 16, Katie, 15, James, 14, Ellie, 13, Aimee, 12, Josh, 10, Max, nine, Tillie, eight, Oscar, six, Casper, five, Hallie, two, Phoebe, 22 months, and Archie, eight months.

After Archie was born, the couple said it was “strange” knowing he would be their last.

When the entire family appeared on ITV’ s This Morning in January, Sue said: “Archie is definitely going to be the last Radford baby.”

But eldest daughter Sophie, who has three kids herself, shook her head and claimed she “can’t see her mum stopping”.

Daughter Aimee, 11, admitted she felt “stressed” looking after her younger siblings.

Presenter Eamonn Holmes labelled dad Noel a “randy goat” as the stars of the Channel 4 documentary ’20 Kids and Counting’ claimed they were not going to have any more children.

The childhood sweethearts’ first child, Chris, was born when Sue was aged just 14.

Sue and Noel were both given up for adoption after they were born, and they decided to keep Chris and raise him as teenage parents.

They got married and had their second child, Sophie, when Sue was 17.

Sue and Noel face a monumental task each day just to feed, clothe and ferry about their huge brood.

The couple spends an estimated £30,000 a year of their own money bringing up their children – including birthdays with a budget of £100 per child and Christmas at £100 to £250 per child, it was previously reported.

In addition, they also have a holiday abroad each year.

Rituals My fiancé Must Perform Before We Marry – Woman Explains |The Republican News

Angela-Nwosu1                 Angela Nwosu. Facebook photo

A lady has revealed the various rituals her future husband must submit to if he truly wants to marry her.

Angela Nwosu said that her fiancé must have taken some bath in a river for three consecutive days to qualify to marry her.

She warned that the three-day purification was one of the few other requirements, saying, “there will still be other rituals, and accepting to bathe in the river means denouncing many things.”

She is confident that the rituals expected of her fiancé would make it unthinkable for him to cheat on her or abuse her physically; warning that he will die if he tries any of the stated issues.

Angela wrote on her Facebook wall: “You will forever be bound to me on a deeper level, you will never cheat, if you cheat on me, even by mistake, you will die.

“You will never get so angry to the extent of laying your hands on me. If you touch me violently, the gods will take drastic action on you, and no matter how much I love you and forgive you, the gods will surely give you equal pains…

“Go and ask the random guys that did as little as slapping me in the past, they will gist you.” 

Noting that people will definitely see this as a joke, as usual, she said her duty was to spread the information and ‘pass the message across.’
