JUST IN: Court Orders Atiku Son’s Arrest

The immediate arrest of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, son of Nigeria’s former Vice-President, has been ordered by an Upper Area Court, Kubwa, Abuja, on Thursday.

we reported that the court ordered Atiku’s arrest for disobeying an October 27, 2020 judgment directing him to hand his three sons to their mother, Maryam Sherif, for custody.

The judge, Bashir Danmaisule, had delivered judgment in favour of Sherif on October 27, 2020.

But her lawyer, Nasir Saidu, returned the court complaining that Abubakar, who bears the same first name and surname with his father, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, had failed to comply with the judgment.
