BEVERLY HILLS, January 11, (THEWILL) – Aminu Atiku, son of former Vice President Abubakar Atiku, has handed over his seven-year-old son, Aamir, to his estranged wife, Unmi Fatima Bolori.
Aminu left with Aamir yesterday afternoon, after allegedly snatching the child from his mother as he was displeased by a court order which gave custody of his two children to his ex-wife.
Chief Magistrate Ayeye of the Tinubu Magistrate Court ordered Bolori to take full custody of the boy and his nine-year-old sister, Ameera after Aminu failed to respond to Bolori’s application for custody of the children.
Ayeye Aminu to pay Bolori the sum of N250, 000 monthly for the upkeep of the children and ordered Aminu to carry out medical insurance on the children among others.
This was because neither Aminu nor his legal team was present to announce appearance at the resumed hearing of the matter on Wednesday and had failed to file a response to the application sought by Bolori.
However, there was a mild drama when Aminu and his legal team arrived at the courtroom at around 1pm when the proceedings were practically over.
Bolori claimed that Aminu, having lost custody of his children, snatched Aamir, their son, and drove off with him.
However, THEWILL gathered that he has returned the boy to Bolori so as not to be found in contempt of court.
