Is this a case of nobody is above the law or the rich also cry?

Well the son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Aminu had a taste of prison after he was locked up in the transit cell of Tinubu chief magistrates court Lagos for disobeying a court order.

He was alleged to have disobeyed an order made by Kikelomo Ayeye, the chief magistrate, in October over the custody of six-year-old Amir Abubakar.

Aminu was said to have taken away Amir from the custody of Fatimo Bolori, his wife.

The chief magistrate had earlier ordered the respondent in the suit marked FCL/29/2017, between U. F. Bolori Vs M. A. Abubakar to produce Amir Abubakar at the first hearing of the case.

When the case came up on Wednesday for the discharge of ‘Emergency, evacuation/protection order’ made by the court, the court was informed that the parties were planning to settle out of court.

In response, Nwabuzor Okoh, Bolori’s lawyer, denied receiving any notification from the respondent to settle out of court.

Ayeye subsequently cited Abubakar’s disobeying court order issued on October 11.

She ordered that the respondent be remanded in transit cell and the case stood down pending when he would produce the boy.

The court, however, released him after the boy was produced while Fatimo was granted custody of the minor for 10 days.

Ayeye adjourned till November 1 for the determination of the full custody of the two children.
