OAP Dotun

Taiwo Oyebanjo, the ex-wife of OAP Dotun Kayode and younger sister of singer Dapo “D’Banj” Oyebanjo, has been found guilty of contempt of court and may be committed to prison, in a divorce suit she filed in Abuja.  

A high court sitting in Dukpa, Abuja, on Monday, Oct. 23, declared Taiwo Oyebanjo, culpable of contravening the order of the court involving the shared custody of the couple’s children.

She has been ordered to pay a fine of N200,000 within 30 days or risk a jail term until the fine is paid.

Recall that in suit No. GWD/ PET/25/21,  the court granted Dotun and his estranged wife divided custody of the kids after Dotun applied for it in April 2022.

Both parties initially complied, but Taiwo has allegedly denied Dotun access to their children since December 2022.

Dotun sought legal redress and also resorted to publicising their issues on social media.

Dotun also alleged on social media that his ex-wife had flown his two daughters out of Nigeria since June 2023, making it impossible for him to see them.

On Monday,  Oct. 23, the court ruled and found Taiwo guilty of disobeying the order of the court, declaring that her refusal to allow Dotun Kayode access and custody of the children in December 2022 was disobedience to the Order of the Court and ordered that she pays the sum of N200,000 within 30days or risk jail term until the fine is paid.

Taiwo was absent in court at the time the judgement was delivered.
