Child Custody: Court Orders Arrest of Mike Adenuga’s Son

By Dipo Olowookere

The battle for the custody of a child between Mr Eniola Adenuga, son of Globacom owner, Mr Mike Adenuga, and the mother of his child, Damilola, has taken a new twist.

According to report, a Tinubu Chief Magistrate’s Court sitting in Lagos has ordered the arrest of the younger Mr Adenuga for refusing to give the custody of his child, Anthena, to the mother.

Punch reports that the chief magistrate, Mr T.A. Elias, in a ruling on Thursday, August 16, 2018, said the 28-year-old was in contempt of court, saying Eniola should be arrested until he gives “full custody of the subject (Anthena) to the respondent (Damilola).”

Eniola and Damilola dated during which the 25-year-old became pregnant and had the child and disagreement allegedly broke out between the duo and their families, resulting in a legal battle for the custody of the child.

Punch had reported that in September 2017, a Tinubu Magistrate’s Court gave an interim order which awarded the custody of the child to the mother.

While Eniola was given unrestricted access to the child, he was, however, asked to pick her every Friday and return her to the mother on Sunday.

The arrangement was said to have been running smoothly until May 18, 2018, when the father, in company with two policemen, allegedly took Athena from school and failed to return her to the mother.

The Falana & Falana Chambers had written a petition to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, accusing Eniola of abduction.

Mrs Funmi Falana, on behalf of her client, filed an ex parte application on May 25, 2018, seeking the release of the child to the mother.

She said Damilola had been traumatised by the incident, adding that she was afraid for the child’s safety.

The application was granted by a magistrate, Mrs M.R. Osho-Adebiyi, who ordered Eniola to produce the child.

He was further ordered to appear before the court to explain why he should not be charged for contempt of court.

However, Eniola’s lawyer, Victor Amalu, filed a motion on notice on August 7, 2018, praying for a stay of execution of the order.

Amalu also asked that the contempt of court application be set aside.

He said it was not right for orders to be given when Eniola was not represented to defend himself.

Eniola’s application was, however, countered by Falana, who said Eniola was taking the court for granted.

The chief magistrate, Elias, overruled Amalu’s objections, describing the “modus operandi” used by Eniola as “appalling.”

He said, “The applicant (Eniola) on May 18, 2018, in company with some armed mobile policemen, went to Athena’s school and forcefully took her away contrary to the order of court dated September 20, 2017, granting custody to the respondent and access every fortnight from Friday to Sunday to the applicant. As there is no order of court validating this act, it amounts to taking law into his own hand and this on its own attracts sanction which should be expected.

“As the best interest of the child shall be primary consideration, this honourable family court is satisfied with the applicant application….”

The chief magistrate, citing Section 64 of the Lagos State Child Right Law, 2007, gave full custody of the child to the mother till she was 18 years old.

He also gave Eniola “supervised” access to the child, adding that he could only see her every fortnight.

Elias advised the parents to take the child’s welfare seriously and put her development and progress first.

“The continuous refusal of the applicant to produce the subject in court amounts to contempt; bench warrant is accordingly ordered for any police officers to effect his arrest until he purges himself of contempt and gives full custody of the subject to the respondent,” he added.

When our correspondent reached out to Eniola for his reaction to the ruling, he asked for some time to call back.

A lawyer, who claimed to be representing him, Abimbola Eniola, sent our correspondent a Lagos State High Court bench ruling, dated August 17, 2018.

The document showed Eniola as the applicant, while the chief magistrate, Elias, and Damilola, were respondents.

The ruling, signed by Justice E.O. Ogundare, said Amalu’s prayers for stay of execution were meritorious.

It said, “This is an application by way of motion ex parte dated August 6, 2018, praying for the following reliefs.

“1. An order granting the applicant leave to apply for judicial review by way of an order of certiorari to remove the purpose of quashing (a) the ex parte order made on May 28, 2018 in suit no. FCL/10/2016 – Eniola Adenuga vs Damilola Oguns (b) the directive of the 1st respondent at the proceedings of July 25, 2018, directing the applicant to comply with the ex parte made on May 28, 2018, in neglect of an application dated July 5, 2018, seeking to set aside the ex parte order on grounds of nullity and irregularity.

“An order staying execution, further execution or action, enforcement or howsoever giving effect in any manner whatsoever to the ex parte order made on May 28, 2018 in suit no. FCL/10/2016 pending the hearing and determination of applicant’s instant application seeking judicial review of the orders and proceedings in this suit.

“An order staying further proceedings in suit no FCL/10/2016 pending the hearing and determination of the applicant’s pending application, dated and filed on July 5, 2018, seeking to set aside the ex parte order made in the suit on May 28, 2018.

“And for such further orders as this honourable court may deem fit to make in the circumstance.”

Ogundare said after considering Amalu’s applications, facts, exhibits and arguments, the reliefs had merit and were granted.

Famous Black and White Logos: Features and Benefits

Published

black and white logos

Despite the fact that many consider black and white logos to be old-fashioned and too simple, experience with their use shows their high efficiency and the presence of a large number of advantages. In any case, history knows many cases when black and white logos became super recognizable and turned into a real brand.

You can develop a black and white logo in the logo maker Turbologo for a couple of mipnuts.

What is a logo

A logo is a symbol (containing a picture, an inscription, or both of these elements in any proportions). Its main purpose is to make the company recognizable and distinguishable from firms engaged in similar activities.

A company with a unique and attractive brand name attracts customers. In addition, such brands inspire more trust among the potential audience.

The logo is not just a stylish picture – it has several significant “missions”:

  •  Creation of brand image. A brand name can convey a lot of information about a company. In addition to the specialization of the brand, the logo tells potential customers and the strengths of the products sold and the services provided. A high-quality logo will show the audience that you are responsible for your business;
  •  Advertising. The emblem presents the brand on the market, increases its significance. With the help of the logo, customers can find out the necessary information about the company and, if they wish, apply for services or goods. It is also effective to use the logo in business correspondence;
  •  Market identification. The logo helps customers who are already familiar with the brand to recognize it among other companies;
  •  Protection from unfair competition. Some firms copy products that belong to another (often promoted) brand. And the logo helps to show customers which of the goods is really genuine;
  •  Reputation building. If a consumer once used the services of your organization and was satisfied, then he is more likely to contact you again;
  •  Good quality guarantee. Products marked with the brand name are genuine. This protects customers from buying fakes.

Black and white logos are quite popular in the modern world. They have both advantages and disadvantages. They are economical (they do not require large development and printing costs to use), are minimalist, unobtrusive, are associated with luxury service companies (as large companies choose simple logos), and stand out against the background of the color emblems of competitors.

While the combination of different shades in a logo can look great, sometimes a black and white theme gets the point across better.

These colors are powerful in their simplicity, and they are suitable for almost any platform.

It can be printed on a T-shirt.

It can be pasted on a wall, pictured on a billboard, or even printed on a car window.

Instagram profile , or used as a Facebook cover.

It can be printed on the athlete’s equipment to promote the brand.

If you want a logo that can fit into any setting, go for the black and white option.

Printing in other colors can be expensive, but binary colors such as black and white are cost effective.

Black and white paints are readily available compared to other colors.

In addition, a binary logo is likely to use less power than a color logo.

Famous black and white logos

Today, dozens of extremely successful black and white brand logos are familiar. This color scheme has significantly increased recognition and has become a real “highlight” of companies such as:

  •  Nissan is a famous car manufacturer from Japan.
  • Nissan logo
  •  Sony is a company engaged in the creation of technology, as well as the production of films and video games.
  • Sony logo
  •  Bentley is a popular automotive giant from the UK.
  • Bentley logo
  •  BBC is the most famous news agency in the world, headquartered in London.
  • BBC logo
  •  Nike is a giant in the sportswear and footwear industry;
  • Nike logo
  •  Wikipedia is an international scientific and educational project known to every person who has ever sat down at a computer and used the Internet.
  • Wikipedia logo
  •  Walt Disney is a company familiar from childhood that produces animated films, as well as feature films such as Pirates of the Caribbean.
  • Walt Disney
  •  Gillette is a world-famous brand that produces blades, razors, creams and other shaving accessories.
  • Gillette logo
  •  Playboy is a legendary adult magazine.

Playboy logo

These are just some of the options for black and white logos that have become famous throughout the world and are known to almost every consumer on Earth. As can be seen from the examples presented, many world-famous brands prefer the combination of black and white to color versions of the logo.

Conclusion

Reducing the color gamut can be a key choice to bring your symbol to high standards, versatility and modernity.

Now is the time to make a black and white symbol that will exalt the brand that has appeared on the market. You can make a black and white logo yourself or by ordering it. The first option is much cheaper, and thanks to the emergence of numerous resources, the logo can be made by yourself, using special designers for this. It doesn’t take much time, but the result is amazing.

LandWey to Deliver over 1000 Houses to Nigerians Soon

Published

LandWey Investment Limited

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Over 1,000 houses would be delivered to Nigerians by the end of the second quarter of 2022, the managing director of Landwey Investment Limited, Ms Shola Bello, has disclosed.

This is part of the efforts being made by Landwey, which is one of Nigeria’s largest residential developers, in reducing the housing deficit in the country.

Ms Bello, in a chat with newsmen on Monday, noted that the company has been able to deploy measures to mitigate the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant economic recession in the real estate sector in Nigeria.

“2022 began on a rough note for most real estate developers in Nigeria. This has been made obvious by the growing apprehension amongst some clients over the viability of their investment owing to delayed delivery of housing units and some publications addressing these issues.

“Many developers in Nigeria have openly addressed some of the challenges experienced in the course of construction and delivery of housing projects, a challenge which is largely attributed to the impact of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic and the resultant economic recession.

“In the past few years, many developers have had to navigate the harsh economy and its severe impact on all businesses across many industries. While it may appear that many of these businesses have recovered from the impact, the story is not quite the same for the real estate industry.

“The industry has felt its huge blow from resultant factors ranging from scarcity of labour, a challenge we have since overcome, scarcity of building materials, unfavourable importation policies, long project approval timelines as well as other environmental limitations.

“However, our clients are always at the forefront of everything that we do, therefore, we have had no other choice but to unearth new and creative solutions in order to mitigate the rippling effects of the pandemic and the harsh realities of the global economy,” she told journalists.

The real estate guru lamented that most real estate development companies had to reassess and adjust their operations to acclimate to the “new atmosphere by working and negotiating potential changes in project completion timelines and the management of their internal and external workforce, communicating challenges and progress updates routinely with investors and reviewing supply agreements with suppliers while also determining the impacts of delays in our delivery obligations as well as other potential risk factors.”

She added that after what appeared to be a challenging Q1, the company is now making a headway on housing project delivery with a mass delivery of homes scheduled to take place at the end of the second quarter.

“I can assure you, by the third quarter of 2022, we would be well on our way to completing at least 1000 homes,” Ms Bello concluded.
