A former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar's son, Aminu, on Thursday took the battle of his children’s custody against his ex-wife, Fatima Bolori, to an Igbosere High Court in Lagos.
Aminu asked the court to upturn a magistrates’ court’s decision which awarded the custody of his two children to Fatima, as well as a N250,000 monthly upkeep. Aminu told Justice Kazeem Alogba that the lower court disregarded his constitutional right of fair hearing before granting judgement in Fatima’s favour.
Aminu, through his counsel, Oyinkan Badejo, filed an application to the high court seeking leave to appeal the lower court’s judgement and another application for a stay of further execution of its terms.
In a bench ruling, Justice Alogba granted Aminu leave to appeal the lower court’s judgment. Further hearing was adjourned until May 17 and June 14.
