Mr Olujonwon Obasanjo, son of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Wednesday 18, told an Ikeja High Court in Lagos State that he had been unable to serve his estranged wife, Temitope, divorce papers.
Temitope is the daughter of popular Premier Lotto magnate, Sir Kessington Adebutu popularly known as “Baba Ijebu.”
The couple were, however absent in court, while there was also no legal representation for Temitope.
Counsel to Olujonwon, Mr Olayinka Kujembola, informed the court that several efforts had been made to serve Temitope.
“We have made several attempts to serve her in Abeokuta, Ogun State, but failed.
“Even at her residence located within an estate in Ikoyi, the court Sheriff complained that he was unable to effect service because of the tight security,” Kujembola said.
Justice Bisi Akinlade noted that proceedings in the divorce suit were always reported in the media and that efforts should be made to serve Temitope in Ogun where she works and resides.
“The issue between this couple is always reported in the papers. The respondent stays in Ogun State, why do you want me to grant an order for substituted service for Lagos where she does not stay?
“I will adjourn this case to ensure that the bailiff serves her personally so that we can be sure that we have exhausted all options.
“This is a very simple matter, it is a very simple divorce. This case is adjourned till October 2 for hearing of pending applications,” Akinlade said.
During proceedings of May 23, Olujonwon’s counsel, Ms Omo Omofoma, also told the court that Olujonwon had made several attempts to serve Temitope to no avail.
Justice Akinlade had noted during the proceedings that other means of service like an alternative address and courier service should be explored by the petitioner (Olujonwon).
Olujonwon and Temitope got married on May 11 and 13, 2017 in a grand wedding which attracted the ‘creme de la creme’ of the society. The marriage, however, came to a halt a few months later
