The Director General, National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons No. 2028 Delaba Street Wuse Zone 5 FCT, Abuja

Dear Madam,
PETITION AGAINST MISS ASHLEY COCO ADELEKE & MR ADEDEJI ADELEKE FOR ATTEMPTED CHILD TRAFFICKING AND ABDUCTION OF MISS AURORA IMADE ADELEKE

We act as Solicitors for Miss. Sophia Ajibola Momodu, (hereinafter referred to as our client) whose instructions we have to forward this petition to your esteemed Agency. Our client, a 27 year old, is the biological mother of a baby girl with name, Aurora Imade Adeleke, who was born on the 14th day of May 2015. The baby’s father is Mr. David Adedeji Adeleke (aka Davido).
The father and mother are unmarried. On the 11th July, 2015, our client was tricked to visit the house of Mr. David Adedeji Adeleke’s half sister – Miss Ashley Coco Adeleke’s with her baby, Imade Aurora Adeleke. After getting to the house on Baderinwa Alabi Street, Lekki Phase I, Lagos, our client’s baby was forcefully taken from her and she was thrown out of the premises with the threat that she would be decisively dealt with if she ever bothered to return there.
There were armed policemen in the premises and our client’s survival instinct prevailed on her to make her leave her breast suckling baby behind, with so much pain in her heart. By daybreak on the next day, our client was again at Ashley Coco Adeleke’s house to take her baby, but she was prevented by armed policemen from gaining access into the house. She was again threatened and warned never to return for the child.
Since July 2015, our client, who has now become so disorientated, saddened and confused has been going to family members, including her cousin, Mr Dele Momodu, and other well meaning Nigerians to intervene and allow her get her baby back or at least allow her to be able to have access to and care for her daughter. This was frustrated by Coco Adeleke, David Adeleke and their father, Mr. Adedeji Adeleke.
These people boasted to our client and all her family and friends that our client is a nonentity and of little substance in Nigeria. They also claim that they have the financial wherewithal and political and security clout to deal with her and her family anyhow and without any consequence with the aid of their brother and uncle, Senator Isiaka Adeleke, and other friends Mr Deji Adeleke purportedly has in government.
In a bid to justify their actions, Mr Deji Adeleke and his daughter, Ashley Coco Adeleke, have been spreading several malicious and unfounded allegations about our client. While the attempts at finding a peaceful and lasting solution were still ongoing, on Tuesday the 29th December 2015, Ashley Coco Adeleke and her father, Mr Deji Adeleke, tried to travel to Dubai with our client’s baby.
The baby was meant to be flown out of the country with Nigerian and American passports. Prior to that date, our client and her cousin, Mr Dele Momodu, had gone to alert the immigration services at the Murtala Mohammed, Ikeja International airport of the likelihood of Ashley Coco Adeleke travelling with our client’s baby by pretending to be the Mother. Our client believes that her baby’s American passport was hidden and is now likely to be in possession of Mr Deji Adeleke or Ashley Coco Adeleke. It appears that the assistance of Emirates Airline was sought as the baby’s American passport was not produced in breach of aviation regulations.
Neither was a letter of authority from the mother to confirm her consent to the trip produced despite the airline being alerted. When Mrs. Modupe Mofikoya, the immigration officer who attended to the Adeleke travelling party accosted Ashley Coco Adeleke and asked for the mother of the baby, Ashley Adeleke claimed that she was the mother. Immediately, the immigration officer on duty collected her Nigerian international passport, she quickly absconded from the scene with the baby and her father, Mr Deji Adeleke, showed up shortly afterwards to try to clear his daughter’s mess.
Our client with the help of her family members, including Mr Dele Momodu, determinedly resisted the attempt by Miss Ashley Coco Adeleke and her father, Mr Deji Adeleke, from taking Aurora Imade Adeleke from Lagos yesterday. Our client believes that the pair are trying to take the child to America and thus put her out of the reach of the biological mother. At the moment, Miss Ashley Coco Adeleke and our client’s daughter, Aurora Imade Adeleke are still in Lagos and two of their respective international passports are in the custody of the airport immigration services.
Our client’s fear now, is that Ashley Coco may use her Nigerian passport and Aurora Imade’s American passport to travel through other Nigerian or West African airports. We know that the actions of Mr Deji Adeleke and Miss Ashley Coco Adeleke contravene many provisions of the law.
One is Section 13 of the Childs Right Law 2007 of Lagos State (as adapted from the Federal Act), which guarantees Aurora Imade Adeleke’s right to parental care and protection. That law also forbids separation of a child from her parents.
Another is Section 24 of the same law, which also prohibits abduction of a child from the lawful custody of her parents. Neither Mr Deji Adeleke or Ms Ashley Coco Adeleke has any lawful right to the custody of Aurora Imade Adeleke. Even the unmarried father, Mr David Adedeji Adeleke, only has limited rights to the child and certainly not to the exclusion of our client, the natural mother as the Adelekes are trying to do.
We are of the sound view that your Agency is the most viable organisation that can intervene in the plight of our client and save her from the untold trauma that she is going through in the hands of Mr Deji Adeleke and Ashley Coco Adeleke, who has her own child that she keeps with her.
We have advised our client about the statutory powers of your Agency to potently investigate and enforce all the provisions of the law that deal with abduction and trafficking in persons. We urge you to use your good offices to intervene in the case of our client and protect a baby who should still be under her mother’s care from being abducted and smuggled abroad. We thank you.
Yours faithfully,
O. AJAYI & CO./Gbolaga Ajayi Esq.

Wizkid asked me to take down our song, says Terry G

Published

By

Terry G, the Nigerian singer, has revealed that Wizkid’s legal team demanded the removal of ‘Mary Jane’ from streaming platforms.

‘Mary Jane’, a song by Terry G featuring Wizkid, was recorded several years ago but was released in April.

In a recent interview on Afrobeats Podcast, Terry G disclosed that the track was recorded in his studio in 2016.

He said he did not seek approval from Wizkid’s management before putting out the song.

Terry G said Wizkid’s lawyers reached out to him to take the song down, adding that he has directed his team to comply.

“To be honest, ‘Mary Jane’ was recorded years ago. He came to my house in 2016, right inside my studio,” he recalled.

“I didn’t clear the song I made with him because in my era we don’t clear songs, we do collaborations based on love.

“I got an email and my management contacted me. They didn’t want to tell me so that I wouldn’t feel bad. They said his lawyer messaged them about what is going on.

“I have dropped the song and requested that it be pulled down, and I am sure they will do that. The lawyers have also reached out to me to take the song down.”

Despite their perceived misunderstanding, Terry G expressed his admiration for Wizkid, describing him as the “Jay Z of this generation”.

He recounted how they both recorded songs in his house, adding that those were “one of the greatest moments for me” in the music industry.

“The memory I had with Wizkid is good, we ended with love and I placed him so much on a high priority,” he said.

“He came to my house, we recorded about four songs, and I appreciate it. We did a lot, and that was one of the greatest moments for me in this music game we were playing.

“Wizkid is the Jay Z of your generation. There is something I like about Wizkid. It’s not about what you have but how you carry it. He’s got that carriage and he inspires a lot.”

Avala calls Tolanibaj a bitch for refusing to play her song

Published

By

After being called out by fellow Big Brother Naija star Avala Balogun, Tolani Baj has refuted her claims that she refused to play her song during her DJ set.

Tensions between the pair escalated after Avala posted “Somebody tell this bitch she made an enemy out of me!!!!!!!! @tolanibaj” on X on June 18, 2024.

Tolani Baj promptly took to X to respond to Avala and clear up the misunderstanding between them. She asserted that there was a lack of communication from the event promoter regarding Avala’s performance needs.

She said, “I’ve made a few calls to get clarity on what the matter is, because we were just at a function last night. I’ve been informed that you were expecting your song to be played during my DJ set last night but I was unaware.”

The reality TV star stressed that she had previously shown support for Avala’s music and had no hand in the events of the night before.

She explained, There was no proper communication from the promoter whatsoever that I needed to infuse your performance into my DJ set at all. My set last night was supposed to be for an hour but got cut to 30 minutes and ended abruptly for the next DJ to play. (I wasn’t happy about this) Yes, you informed me that you were performing and I was super excited for you. A song that I love and supported you by pushing it on all my platforms? Come on girl. How was I expected to know the plans if nothing was communicated to me?”

Tolani Baj highlighted the lack of communication between her and Avala and expressed regret that Avala did not reach out directly to discuss the issue before calling her out on social media.

“I’m so disappointed to be very honest because what you may have assumed is completely false. We could’ve clarified immediately with a call or text but there was no grace extended to hear my side of the story,” she concluded.

Mohbad’s family rejects autopsy report, demands independent post-mortem

Published

By

The family of late singer Mohbad has rejected the result of the autopsy conducted on him.

Born Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, Mohbad died under mysterious circumstances on September 12 and was buried the next day.

On September 21, the body of the artiste was exhumed. An autopsy was carried out that same day after which the police announced that they were awaiting the results.

In May, Wahab Shittu, a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), said the pathologist in charge of the autopsy told the coroner that Mohbad’s body had decomposed by the time the test was conducted.

The pathologist also said the cause of the singer’s death could not be ascertained.

But on June 7, we obtained Mohbad’s autopsy result from the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).

The result showed that “no significant gross finding” could be attributed to the singer’s death.

The toxicology “revealed the positive finding of Diphenhydramine, an anti-histamine; however, this concentration was not in a fatal or lethal range”.

On Monday, the Aloba family challenged the Lagos state government concerning the autopsy results.

During a press conference led by the family’s lawyers Shittu and Taiwo Odumosu, they demanded an independent post-mortem and toxicology test.

According to the lawyers, the Aloba family was “compelled to denounce the ‘inconclusive’ toxicology test results and demand that re-examination be conducted with the utmost transparency and adherence to the highest standards of forensic science”.

The family also tackled the police for “not doing enough” regarding the investigation into Mohbad’s death.

“We, the legal representatives of the Aloba family, express our profound dissatisfaction and disappointment with the recent announcement regarding the toxicology test results of the late Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, which have been declared ‘inconclusive’ by the pathologist,” the lawyers said.

“This outcome is entirely unacceptable to us and the Aloba family and raises serious concerns about the integrity and thoroughness of the investigation by the police and the medical team into the untimely death of their beloved son, brother, and friend.

“The Aloba family and, indeed, the whole world demand to know where the toxicology test was carried out, as this has impugned its integrity.

“The legal team wonders how the letterhead and the address of the National Medical Services Laboratories in Pennsylvania, USA, appeared on the toxicology test report if the test was not truly carried out in the USA.

“The legal team is puzzled more, given the discrepancies in the further response given by the NMS laboratories ascribing the test to another sister laboratory. The conflict of interest bothers professional integrity.

“The public is interested in knowing the relationship between the Lagos State DNA and Forensic Laboratory, NMS in the USA, and ITSI Biosciences, which allegedly completed the toxicology test on behalf of the Lagos State government.

“The family’s hope that the toxicology test reportedly conducted in the United States would shed light on the circumstances surrounding his tragic passing, has been dashed.”

According to the lawyers, other demands by the family include “a thorough review of the procedures and protocols followed during the initial toxicology testing, which should include an assessment of the chain of custody, handling, and analysis of the samples to ensure that no procedural lapses or contamination occurred”.

“We urge the involvement of independent international forensic experts to oversee and validate the re-examination process.

“Their participation will help restore confidence in the findings and ensure that all possible avenues are explored.

“The Aloba family demands full disclosure of all findings and reports related to the toxicology tests. Transparency is crucial to understanding the cause of death and dispelling any doubts or suspicions.

“The Nigeria Police has not done enough in this case. The investigation so far conducted does not show the thoroughness and professionalism expected in a murder case of this nature.

“We call on the Inspector General of Police to personally intervene in this investigation and bring the perpetrators to book.

“Considering the Coroner Inquest, we appeal to the presiding magistrate to ensure that an independent toxicology report is submitted to the Coroner’s Court before submitting the final report to the authorities.”

In February, Gbenga Omotosho, Lagos commissioner for information, revealed that the autopsy was conducted in the United States at the National Medical Services Laboratories (NMS).

NMS, however, denied the claim, stating that no case related to Mohbad was being conducted at their facility.
