Court orders arrest of woman over asset sharing of late husband

A Lagos High Court, sitting in Ikeja, has issued a
bench warrant for the arrest of a popular society
lady, Princess Abiodun Folasade Madojutimi
Omotade. The bench warrant was issued by Hon.
Justice L.A.F Oluyemi, following the refusal of
Omotade (defendant) to appear before it on
contempt proceeding on Tuesday, July 21, 2015.

In the warrant, the Judge ordered all security
agencies, the Nigerian Police Force, Nigeria
Immigration Service, Nigerian Customs Service,
Nigerian Navy, Nigerian Air Force, International
Police, (INTERPOL) and all other security forces to
arrest her and put her in prison until September 23,
2015 when the case will come up for hearing.
"It is hereby ordered: Order bench Warrant to be and
same is hereby issued against the 1st defendant/
contempnor, Miss Folasade Abiodun Adesokan, aka
Mrs. Omotade, for her arrest by any enforcement
agency/agent in Nigeria; and to remain in prison
custody when apprehended till the next hearing date
which is 23rd September, 2015, for hearing of the
contempt proceedings," he ordered.

Princess Abiodun Folasade Madojutimi Omotade is
one of the two wives of late Mr. Olaseni Ayodeji
Omotade who died in plane crash on 22nd of
October, 2005, leaving the family without any will.
Grace Omotade, one of the wives with three children
(Oluwafumilayo, Oluwaseun and Onikepo), who
claims to be the only legal wife and a matron packed
out of her matrimonial home in annoyance when her
late husband, then in his prime, brought in Folasade
whom she viewed as his mistress.

As at the time Olaseni died, Folasade, who was the
only woman then in the house allegedly cornered all
the properties and embarked on asset stripping,
disposing all the properties and assets of late Olaseni
without the knowledge of Grace. The bubble burst
when she attempted to dispose the family property at
No. 5a and 5b, Kayode Alli Street, Omole Phase I,
Ikeja, Lagos.

Grace got a hint of the development and filed Suit No:
ID/183M/2006 seeking an order restraining and
preventing Folasade and her agents from selling,
disposing off and/or leasing the property at Omole
Phase I and an order directing and/or mandating the
Registrar of the court and or the Deputy Sheriff to put
the property under lock and key and deposit same
with the Honourable court pending the determination
of the case.

The order was granted by Hon Justice Williams
Dawodu on July 10, 2006, wherein the Honourable
judge ordered that parties shall maintain the status
quo pending the determination of the interlocutory
application. But the defendant went ahead to sell
the said property in defiance of the court order for
N55 million to Mr. Raphael Adeyemi and Mrs.
Abimbola Aina, prompting the claimant to institute
contempt of court proceeding against her.
The deed of sale was sealed and delivered by
Princess Abiodun F. M. Omotade in the presence of
Mr. Isaac Alabi, a baker at 1/3 Isaac Alabi Crescent
and Modupe Ladele, a Lawyer at 14 Abimbola Street,

However, the defendant, Folasade, however, averred
that she remains the only surviving wife of the
deceased with three children and that the first
claimant, Grace, was a mere concubine and in the
course of her co-habitation with the deceased
claimed to have had 3 children for the deceased.
Folasade further stated that she was three months
pregnant when she lost her husband and that she
gave birth to a set of twin named Taiwo
Oluwadamilare Omotade and Kehinde Ayooluwa
Omotade on May 17, 2006 and that she currently has
three children for the deceased, namely,
Oyinkansola Omotade, Taiwo Oluwadamilare
Omotade and Kehinde Ayooluwa Omotade.
