OAP Dotun’s Wife files for divorce, states domestic violence
Omotayo, the wife of on-air-personality Kayode Oladotun popularly known as Do2dtun, has filed for divorce over alleged forced abortion, domestic violence and emotional abuse.
The duo married in 2013 and had two children together.
However, sometime in November, 2021, Omotayo instituted a divorce proceeding before Justice A.I Akobi of Court 23, High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, in Suit Number: GWD/PET/25/2021, over alleged “unending reckless emotional abuse, forced abortion and vicious domestic violence,” by Do2dtun, which she claimed has adversely affected her health and general well-being.
According to court documents obtained by our correspondent, and signed by Omotayo’s lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, “the OAP forced his wife to abort her third pregnancy as a married woman”.
The court subsequently granted the divided custody of the children which Omotayo did not oppose to, pending the final determination of the suit in court.
Olajengbesi alleged that Do2dtun, on December 14, 2022, stormed Omotayo’s Abuja residence with some policemen and forcefully broke into her premises, assaulted her gateman and staff.
He said, “She had gone into hiding and refused to disclose her actual whereabouts to him as he continued hauling all manner of insults on her person.”
Omotayo through her lawyer, Olajengbesi, thereafter petitioned the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force Criminal Investigation Department, Abuja for unlawful entry, malicious damage, criminal trespass and unlawful use of policemen by Do2dtun.
The petition dated December 14, 2022 and stamped to show receipt by the office of the DIG, said the invasion left Omotayo in a “state of emotional distress and fear of imminent danger in the hands of the sefendant (Do2dtun) who remains volatile and unpredictable”.
It further said, “In view of the facts stated in this petition, we humbly request that you use your good office to conduct a dispassionate investigation into our client’s petition and cause an appropriate action in line with the law to be taken against the defendant in order to guarantee the safety of our client and for the interest of justice.
“In addition to the above, we request that the identity of the Nigeria Police Force officers who engaged in the unlawful act at the bidding of the defendant be made known to the public, and necessary action be taken against them so as to preserve the integrity of the NPF that has been painstakingly built over the years.”
But reacting to the allegations via Instagram on Friday, he radio host accused his wife’s family and lawyers of spreading lies about him.
“I have been quiet for the past two years,” he wrote in the captions. “Several lies have been told, several attempts have been employed to pervert the course of justice.
“It is shameful when legal practitioners that are supposed to be learned, rather than submit themselves to the jurisdiction of the Court, choose to conduct the practice of the law like social media bloggers.”
He particularly mentioned singer Dbanj, Omotayo’s biological brother, and accused him of scheming with the press and police to tarnish his image.
Do2dtun promised to also expose the family’s “wicked” and “deceitful” ways.
“Anyways, @iambangalee of life, I have heard and read the spurious lies you, your half baked lawyer and your family have fabricated with the press and the police and I promise you, I am ready for you.
“Since you have chosen to take the matter to the press, the entire world will now know how wicked, deceitful, ignorant and despicable you and your entire family are,” he said.
