OAP Dotun’s wife, Omotayo, files for divorce over ‘forced abortion and domestic violence’

Omotayo, the wife of Dotun, the OAP, has sought divorce based on allegations of forced abortion.

The OAP’s wife is also accusing her partner of domestic violence and emotional abuse.

Omotayo got married to Dotun, whose full name is Kayode Ojuolape Oladotun, in 2013. The marriage is blessed with two kids.

She has, however, filed for separation from the Cool FM radio host before A. I Akobi of the FCT high court.

In the suit numbered “GWD/PET/25/2021” and dated 2021, Omotayo cited “unending emotional abuse, forced abortion, and vicious domestic violence” that she said has adversely impacted her health and general well-being.

According to court documents signed by Pelumi Olajengbesi, Omotayo’s lawyer who is also the managing partner of Law Corridor, an Abuja-based law firm, the OAP “forced his wife to abort her third pregnancy as a married woman.”

The court subsequently granted divided custody of their children which Omotayo did not oppose pending the final determination of the suit.

A source who spoke to newsmen on the matter said Dotun stormed Omotayo’s Abuja residence on December 14, 2022, with some policemen and forcefully broke into her premises.

The source alleged that the OAP assaulted her gateman and staff, forcing Omotayo into hiding.

It is understood that Omotayo, through her lawyer, petitioned the deputy inspector general (DIG) of police at the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) in Abuja.

She made claims of unlawful entry, malicious damage, criminal trespass, and unlawful use of policemen.

The petition, dated December 14 and stamped to show receipt by the DIG’s office, said the invasion left Omotayo in “distress and fear of imminent danger in the hands of the defendant who remains volatile and unpredictable”.

In the petition to the DIG, Omotayo’s lawyer wrote in part: “We humbly request that you use your good office to conduct a dispassionate investigation and cause an appropriate action in line with the law to be taken,

“We request that the identity of the Nigeria police 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.”
