The custody fight between Aminu Atiku, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar’s son and his ex-wife, Fatima Bolori, has taken another turn, as she has just been granted custody of his two children.
Delivering his judgement on the custody battle between Aminu Abubakar and his ex-wife Fatima Bolori which has been on since their separation, Chief Magistrate K.B Ayeye ruled that the children Amirah Atiku, 8, and Aminu Atiku, 7, should be with their mother.
Recall that the couple who got married in 2007 and broke up in 2011, had a dirty fight at their daughter’s school in 2017, with Fatima Bolori accusing Atiku Abubakar’s wife, Titi Abubakar of instigating the bitter faceoff.
As the story goes, after their breakup, Aminu went with their daughter, Amirah Atiku. Consequently, Fatima Bolori filed a suit for the custody of her daughter as provided under Islamic law. Promptly, Aminu countered her by also filing a suit seeking the custody of the kid. But while the impasse aggravated between the duo, Bolori won and was granted custody on Wednesday, October 11th. She went to her daughter’s school to pick her up and on hearing that she was there, Aminu and his police escorts stormed the school and prevented her from taking the child. Fatima Bolori spat into the air and received it in measured cadence, vowed to not leave the school premises until she was allowed to take her child with her.
It should also be recalled that Aminu and Fatima got married in an epic wedding ceremony in the wake of an enviable and surreal courtship. So sizzling was their romance that Aminu was ready to do anything to impress her and make her his bride.
However, few years into their marriage, bliss developed wings and vanished into thin air. Love took a long vacation and discord erected a massive structure in their abode.
Eventually, the couple separated after a protracted marital crisis.
