IBB’s son drags ex-wife to Sharia court



IBB’s son drags ex-wife to Sharia court

Mohammed, son of Former Nigerian Military President, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, is currently battling his ex-wife Rahama for custody of their two eldest kids. From the court documents LIB was able to exclusively obtain and also confirmation from a reliable source, Mohammad initiated the custody battle. While their eldest kids Maryam and Ibrahim are reportedly in Rahma’s custody, our source reveals that two youngest ones are with him in Minna.

Mohammed took the custody battle with his ex-wife to a Sharia Court in Minna, Niger state and sources close to the case say they suspect foul play, saying not only was judgement allegedly carried out without Rahma and her representatives being present, but allegations are being made that the Babangidas are manipulating the case, especially since they have notable influence in the state.

The Court has now ordered Rahma to hand over the two children to their father, pending the determination of a substantive suit. An insider claims this shouldn’t be so. (Read here) to learn more about Child custody under sharia law.)

There is also an allegation about threats to life being made and a police report being filed to address it. Whether it’s about the custody battle or the controversial audio that was supposedly leaked via Rahma’s Instagram page, LIB can’t confirm yet until we acquire proof.

From the documents acquired, Rahma has since replied and objected to the Sharia’s court judgement via an FCT Area court.
