Taiwo Oyebanjo,younger sister of singer Dapo “D’Banj” Oyebanjo and estranged wife of the popular on-air personality OAP Dotun Kayode has been charged with contempt of court due to her refusal to allow Dotun access to their children. The court found her guilty of this contempt, potentially leading to a jail sentence.
A high court in Dukpa, Abuja, ruled against OAP Dotun’s ex-wife, declaring her in violation of a court order regarding the joint custody of their children. Notably, the court had initially granted Dotun and his estranged wife shared custody of the children in suit No. GWD/PET/25/21, following Dotun’s request in April 2022, and both parties had initially agreed to this arrangement.
However, Taiwo, without providing any reasons, refused to grant her estranged spouse access to their children since December 2022, despite the court’s ruling. In response, Dotun initiated legal proceedings, sparking a recent and intense social media feud between the two.
The court found that Taiwo’s denial of access and custody to Dotun Kayode in December 2022 constituted a breach of the court’s order, resulting in her being found guilty of contempt. The court’s ruling further stipulated that Taiwo must pay a fine of N200,000 within 30 days or face potential imprisonment until the fine is settled.
