A Lagos State High Court has restrained the chief medical director of Chevron Nigeria Limited, Dr. Rotimi Babalola, from evicting his wife, Mrs. Adediwura Adebukola Babalola, from their matrimonial home.
Justice Olukayode Ogunjobi specifically bar Dr. Babalola by himself, his servants, privies, or workmen from entering, trespassing, or otherwise disturbing the possession of the building at No. 8, Service Crescent, Cooperative Villa, Badore, Ajah, Lagos pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice filed in the divorce petition by his wife.
The judge granted the order after hearing arguments canvassed by the petitioner’s counsel, Adeleke Agbola, who pleaded for accelerated grant of the injunction in view of the insistence of the Chevron CMD to unlawfully evict his wife from the matrimonial home.
The motion on notice was adjourned to the 20th of September 2021 when the Lagos State High Court will resume from its annual vacation.
Mrs. Babalola had earlier filled the petition before Lagos State High Court in Suit No: LD/9231WD/2021 when all the attempts by counsel to her husband, Olusola Idowu SAN of Olusola Idowu & Co., and her counsel Adeleke Agbola of Cheakley Chambers to make the husband embrace peaceful settlement failed to yield any.
