Stardom comes with it’s highs and lows and occasionally some drama here some drama there. Well Nigerian hit maker Davido and his sister Ashley Adeleke have been reportedly accused of child abduction.
According to a petition addressed to the director general National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons and seen by Naij.com, the pop singer is accused of “attempted child trafficking and abduction of miss aurora Imade Adeleke”.
A copy of the petition the newspaper has also been sent to the President, Vice President, Lagos state governor, the inspector general of police, the director general of the DSS and the managing director of FAAN.
The petitioner, Miss. Sophia Ajibola Momodu claimed she was tricked to visit the house of Mr. David Adedeji Adeleke’s half sister – Miss Ashley Coco Adeleke’s with her baby, Imade Aurora Adeleke on July 11, 2015.
“After getting to the house on Baderinwa Alabi Street, Lekki Phase I, Lagos, our client’s baby was forcefully taken from her and she was thrown out of the premises with the threat that she would be decisively dealt with if she ever bothered to return there. There were armed policemen in the premises and our client’s survival instinct prevailed on her to make her leave her breast suckling baby behind, with so much pain in her heart,” the petition reads in part.
Yesterday, Tuesday, 29 December, Ashley Coco Adeleke and her father, Mr Deji Adeleke reportedly tried to travel to Dubai with the baby but was stopped by Mrs. Modupe Mofikoya, an immigration officer who attended to the Adeleke travelling party.
Ms Sophia said with the help of her family members, including Mr Dele Momodu, she was determinedly resisted the attempt by Miss Ashley Coco Adeleke and her father, Mr Deji Adeleke, from taking her baby Aurora Imade Adeleke from Lagos yesterday.
“Our client believes that the pair are trying to take the child to America and thus put her out of the reach of the biological mother. At the moment, Miss Ashley Coco Adeleke and our client’s daughter, Aurora Imade Adeleke are still in Lagos and two of their respective international passports are in the custody of the airport immigration services.
“Our client’s fear now, is that Ashley Coco may use her Nigerian passport and Aurora Imade’s American passport to travel through other Nigerian or West African airports,” the petition added.
Davido’s manager, denied the allegations raised in the petition.
