Theheute-

A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Monday received a suit filed by Adegboyega Lawal against his estranged wife, Folashade Olalude and the men of the Nigerian Police.

Mr Lawal is the new husband of a famous Yoruba actress and filmmaker, Elizabeth Anjorin, popularly called Lizzy Anjorin.

They had an elaborate Nikkai ceremony attended by some of her friends in the movie industry in July 2020. A few months after settling into married life, controversies arose.

His friend, Saheed Abogun, introduced him to his estranged wife in 2016. They married in 2017 after a formal customary introductory ceremony in her father’s house at lyana Iyesi, Ota, Ogun State.

They have two children, Lateefat Lawal, born in 2017 and Khadijat Lawal, born in 2020.

He had dragged his estranged wife, Folashade, before the court in a fundamental rights enforcement suit marked FHC/L/CS/1488/22, alongside the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Zone 2, Onikan, Lagos, its Officer-in-Charge of the Monitoring Unit, and one Mrs Tina, an Investigation Police with the Zone 2.

Mr Lawal, in the suit filed by his lawyer, M. B. Bello, asked the court for “a declaration that the continuous harassment, humiliation, spreading of falsehood, and abuse on social media against him and his family by his estranged wife, is vindictive.

They also sought “An order of injunction restraining the second and third respondents, whether by themselves, their officers, agents, servants, privies or acting through any person or persons howsoever from further harassing, humiliating, embarrassing and threatening to detain the applicant based on the false and unfounded allegations from the first respondent”.

For the footing of aggravated and exemplary damages for his continuous invitation, harassment, intimidation and humiliation by the second to fourth respondents at the instance of the first respondent.”

Countersuit

But his estranged wife, Ms Olalude, the first respondent in the suit, in her counter affidavit filed by her lawyer, Wahab Shittu, has asked the court to dismiss Mr Lawal’s case because it seeks to truncate an ongoing police investigation against him.

She stated they were both living as husband and wife at No. 7 New Oko-Oba Road, Fagba, Lagos and that their second child was three to four months old when the applicant suddenly absconded from their marital home, abandoning her and the children without justifiable reasons in 2020.

Ms Olalude also said he has stopped meeting his marital obligations and responsibilities, including paying the house rent, children’s school fees and maintenance allowances for the children.

She stated that she got to know subsequently that Mr Lawal had started a relationship with the Nollywood Actress Lizzy Anjorin, and they both launched a vitriolic attack on her and her children on various social media platforms for the applicant to abandon his matrimonial responsibilities to her and the two children of their marriage.

She stated that the applicant, through his new wife, has issued several threats to her life on social media platforms to the extent that her life and that of her children remained threatened, and she no longer felt safe walking on the streets for fear of being attacked.

Ms Olalude added that when the threats and attacks became unbearable, her plight got the attention of human rights activists and online social bloggers, who launched a public campaign for her protection against the unjustified attacks by the applicant and his actress wife, including their collaborators.

She also stated that she officially reported the applicant and his new wife, Lizzy Anjorin, to the Police at Zone 2, Onikan, Lagos Island.

Following the official report made by her to the Police, the second, third and fourth respondents officially invited the applicant, who has repeatedly been shunning police invitations, stating his side of the story.

She stated that the suit instituted by the applicant was designed to prevent him from honouring the invitation extended to him by the other respondents, and that she never harassed, humiliated or spread any falsehood against the applicant or his new wife, Elizabeth Ibukunolu Anjorin, as alleged.

She averred that she never published or caused to be published any falsehood against Mr Lawal and his new wife on any social media platforms as alleged, other than the legal action she has taken concerning the harassment, abandonment, neglect and threats that she faced daily in the hands of the applicant, Elizabeth Ibukunolu Anjorin and their collaborators.

Allegations

She also denied the applicant’s allegations of calling him a “Gigolo”, a gold digger, on Facebook and other social media platforms.

Still, she stated that she was the victim of the applicant’s neglect and abandonment, as the applicant abandoned her with two children, only to run to Elizabeth Ibukunolu Anjorin.

She stated that the invitation of the applicant by the fourth respondent to report to the Police in response to her petition is a normal Police statutory investigation process, adding that the fourth respondent merely invited the applicant to state his side of the story.

Ms Olalude also said the applicant had been consistently interfering with her freedom by instigating the landlord of their former rented matrimonial premises at No. 7 New Oko-Oba Road, Fagba, Lagos, to prevent her from moving out her personal belongings from the said house to date.

She said that her previous attempts to move out her personal belongings from the said premises were resisted by the said landlord.

“He threatened to affect my arrest by acting on the applicant’s instructions. My personal belongings remain detained on the premises, working on the applicant’s orders.

“He has been using the children of his first marriage to persistently harass her on social media through all kinds of unprintable insults hauled at her person.

“The suit filed by Adegboyega aimed to truncate the police investigation of allegations against him.”

Society Why Sir Kessington Adebukunola Adebutu Remains An Epitome Of Grace At 88

Published

on

Born on October 24, 1935, into a humble family, Sir Kessington Adebukunola Adebutu CON, KJW, FISM is the Odole-Oodua, Balogun of Remoland and the founder of Premier Lotto, the company many now know as Baba Ijebu.

But this is not the most interesting thing about the man whose gaming company offers lotto services and betting in Nigeria and has become Nigeria’s most popular and oldest gaming company since it was registered in 2001.

Baba Ijebu as a name has become synonymous with betting in Nigeria, and like homonyms, Chief Kessington Adebutu’s moniker has many other meanings. To the millions of Nigerians who have benefitted from his generosity and goodness of heart, Adebutu is the man of courage who meets people at the point of their need without prejudice.

Long before philanthropy and humanitarian acts became ‘sexy’ and the PR go-to for every average millionaire, the revered industrialist and astute businessman had begun to cater for the less privileged, while also supporting indigent students and hospital patients who had no means to help themselves. He did this all through his Kessington Adebukola Adebutu Foundation.

Today, by whatever yardstick you choose to measure, Baba Ijebu numbers among Nigeria’s leading philanthropists whose benevolence has spanned over decades. His path to philanthropy can be traced back to his days as a young student thirsty for knowledge.

From Ijero Baptist School, Apapa Road, Ebute-Meta in Lagos where he had his primary education, he was admitted into Baptist Academy, Lagos, for his secondary education in 1951. He eventually completed his secondary education at Remo Secondary School (ESS), Sagamu, Ogun state in 1955, topping his class in the School Leaving Certificate Examination.

His brilliant educational background, no doubt, is a precursor to his love for education, and can be proven by his countless philanthropic gestures to scores of educational institutions and citadels of learnings across the country.
His principle that an educated and healthy soul can never be hungry was the drive behind the establishment of the foundation and he has maintained that drive since.

According to calculatable statistics, his charity foundation spends an average of N150 million monthly on humanitarian activities, and through this, his business continues to touch lives against odds.

As a true philanthropist, Sir Kessington Adebutu does not discriminate in his charitable deeds. He is kind-hearted, socially responsible and continually uses his wealth for human capital development.

This generosity and enviable works earned him titles like ‘Babalaje of Lagos’, and the ‘Asoju Oba of Lagos’.
In October 2015, Chief Kessington Adebutu was decorated with a honorary title of Doctor of Business Administration by the Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), for his invaluable contribution to the nation’s economy.

At 88, Baba Ijebu has shown no signs of stopping or resting on past laurels. This is probably why successive governments are constantly seeking his good graces in recognition of his matchless support to the populace.

Sir Kessigngton Adebutu is also the epitome of grace, he is the model of a man who has achieved excellence through the sweat of his brow. He has been named great because of his defiance against all forms of evil, staying true to his vision to offer assistance to every needy person he can, even in the midst of despair and harsh economic realities.

Not one to surrender, it is no wonder that at this 88th birthday, people of influence all over the world have chosen to celebrate him massively.
Fear they say makes a man stingy, but courageous is the one who gives and keeps on giving despite the odds. Baba Ijebu has stood for decades as a symbol of the true spirit of the Ijebus of Ogun State, and it is the hope of many that his legacy lives on forever.

A 26-year-old Australian woman, Annie Knight, has reportedly lost her corporate job after her work discovered her secret OnlyFans account.

According to DailyMail, she shared her experience on SBS’ Insight on Tuesday, saying she was shocked she was dismissed from a corporate role.

Knight, who claims to be in the top 0.4 per cent of creators on OnlyFans, said she did have apprehensions when she first ventured into the platform but didn’t think she would lose her job.

“Yes, that was definitely my number one concern when I first started my account. And the last thing I wanted to do was to get fired if someone found my OnlyFans,” she shared.

Unfortunately for Knight, these fears materialised a few years down the line.

“I had just started a new job. I was on day five, and I actually went home sick that day, and I received an email saying termination of contract,” she explained.

The email contained screenshots from her OnlyFans account, along with three reasons for her dismissal.

The reasons cited included allegations she falsely claimed having a side business, did not seek the company’s permission to run this side venture and shared ‘online pornographic images’ of herself with ‘crude language’.

The company said they deemed it unacceptable.

Asked if she contested this decision, Knight responded, ‘I did, only because by day five I hated the job so much that I wasn’t going to fight the ruling. But I was definitely very upset and very angry at the decision.’

The former marketing manager started her OnlyFans in September 2020, in a bid to save money to buy a house but had never expected it to become so lucrative so quickly.

Within a month Annabelle made thousands, and continued to use it for the next 18 months as a side project to her full-time job, averaging $1,794-a-month.

She now makes around $969 a day sharing saucy photos of herself online.

“I am pleased to [have been fired] an extent, I’m a lot happier now and have a lot more freedom,’ Annabelle told Jam Press.

“I’m earning a considerable amount more now than I was at the other job.’

Earlier this year, Annie appeared on The Kyle and Jackie O Show to discuss her X-rated antics, and boasted of sleeping with 300 men and women in the span of a single year.

“I’m down to try anything,’ she said, confirming she does ‘pretty much everything’ on her OnlyFans account.

Annie confessed to bedding five different people in one day, explaining she finds men on dating apps and also has a roster of ‘regulars’ she romps with.

“I feel empowered afterwards,’ she said. ‘Sex makes me feel good. It’s meant to make you feel good.”

The beauty went on to tell a story about sleeping with an incredibly well-endowed man ‘who was quite girthy’.

Taking things even further, Annie boasted about having sex ‘under a restaurant table’ while out on a date.

‘We’d finished dinner and were up to dessert,’ she said cheekily.

She also said sometimes when she’s out in public she ‘can’t wait’ to have sex and will have to drag a lover to the bathroom to take care of things.
