Custody battle of Moh’med and Rahama Babangida gets messier

The drama being thrown up by Rahama Babangida (nee Indimi), the estranged wife of Mohammed Babangida, first son of former military President, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd) in the battle she is wagging against her former husband over the custody of their four children is landing her in more and more problems.

It is on record that a court has granted Mohammed Babangida the custody of the children but all efforts by court officials, accompanied by the police to execute a valid court order have met with dramatic resistance from Rahama, who consistently used social media propaganda to whip up sentiments that Mohammed wants to use his influence as a son of former military president to unjustly maltreat her.

Lately, Rahama has reportedly asked her lawyer to write a petition to the Inspector General of Police and President Muhammadu Buhari, alleging threat to her life by Mohammed.

Meanwhile, family sources disclosed to ENCOMIUM Weekly that Rahama’s father, Alhaji Mohammed Indimi, the owner of Oriental Energy, is angered by all the antics of his daughter and has washed his hands off her matter.

”Alhaji Indimi has directed Rahama to release the children to their father who has the capacity to raise them well, but she stubbornly refused to listen to her dad. The man felt disgraced by the attitude of the daughter, saying that she has destroyed an age long relationship he had built over the years with the Babangidas. Because of this, Alhaji Indimi has practically disowned her”, our source revealed.

The source further reminded that Alhaji Indimi is particularly bitter with the quantum of lies Rahama is spewing against Mohammed in this unwarranted feud.

”I want to remind you once again that it was Ibrahim Babangida (Mohammed’s father) that gave Indimi the break  that catapulted him into the league of billionaires in the country when the former was the military president. So, it is painful to him that it’s his own daughter that is now maligning the Babangidas because of marital issues.

Meanwhile, sources disclosed that the police might arrest Rahama any moment from now for obstructing them from carrying out a court order of retrieving the children for their father.
