October 15, (THEWILL) – Omotayo Taiwo Oyebanjo, wife to On-Air Personality, Dotun Kayode, aka Do2dtun, says her lawyers have initiated contact to allow him to see their children.
Do2dtun married Omotayo, a sister to singer Dapo Oyebanjo, aka Dbanj, in 2013.
Their union, however, hit a rough patch in 2022. This was after it became public knowledge that Omotayo had filed for divorce on claims of forced abortion.
Do2dtun has since been in a child custody dispute with Omotayo.
An Abuja High Court granted divided custody of their children in June 2022 pending the final resolution of the suit.
But Do2dtun claims he is being denied access and alleges that Dbanj remains an instrument of discord in the case.
Omotayo has now bowed to pressure and says she has instructed her lawyers to initiate contact so that Do2dtun can see their children.
“I kindly request that we resolve the children’s issue amicably. My legal team has initiated contact, and I encourage your lawyers to reciprocate, provided that we maintain the confidentiality of their address,” she told Dotun.
Omotayo aired her concerns about their two daughters being exposed to the harsh climate of social media.
“In mid-August, you posted a Tiktok video with the girls on Instagram. I urged caution and expressed my concern that our 5 and 7-year-old daughters were too young to be exposed to social media and you know I don’t like it.
“Your reaction was intense. You lashed out at me and my family and reminded me that you had the final say in such matters. You subsequently blocked me on WhatsApp and all social media platforms, to date.”
In a previous outburst, Do2dtun had claimed that Omotayo opted to have an abortion for an ex of hers but told the press that he, Do2dtun, had forced her into it.
Omotayo, in response, narrated that Do2dtun didn’t give her time to discuss the decision with her family before he drove her to a medical practitioner where they aborted her pregnancy.
“You drove me to the doctor despite my pleas, later suggesting that we had reached a mutual agreement despite the unfortunate timing. I didn’t discuss it with my brother. Let’s not use the kids to fight old wounds,” she wrote.
“I want to implore you to exercise restraint in this matter and leave my innocent family out of it. There’s a process in place, let’s get it done so that you can have your kids and watch if truly that is the issue.”
Omotayo’s court filing alleged unending reckless emotional abuse, forced abortion, and vicious domestic violence.
The divorce was instituted before A. I Akobi of Court 23, High Court of the FCT, in suit GWD/PET/25/2021.
