The woman, Shola Ajia, who we reported snitched on her ex-husband, a Customs officer, Abdulfatai Abdukareem, after he took a second wife and they broke up, has denied she is behind the petition against her ex before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences, ICPC.
In a mail she posted on our Facebook page, the Ilorin-born woman said, “I am as happy as I left in January out a marriage of 20 years+ without a pin. No one can rub me off my happiness. I do not believe in living in a big house. I believe in living in a happy home.
“If u(sic) cannot get this and u(sic) decide to move on with life. I do not see any problem with it. Before anyone is found guilty. There should be prove of evidence. Let the world see the proof that I report(sic) to EFCC AND ICPC. Will not say more than this. I have my children and God to answer to. For those that love me. All is well. I believe it is only two people involved and God as a third person that know the truth of every story. I believe in the law of karma which as(sic) start to take it cost(sic). So I should be left alone to care for my children. Which is the only thing I am taught to believe in. The kids are grown up to judge. And I believe they see clearly.”
However, finding by OrijoReporter revealed that the EFCC does not receive anonymous petition. It also gathered that the petitioner that petitioned the anti-graft agency exposing all the ill-gotten wealth of Abdulfatai, a Customs officer who apparently corruptly enriched himself given the assets he acquired and his level as an ordinary middle level officer, we are told is linked to Shola Ajia, a woman who bore him four children.
It was further gathered that Shola dragged Abdulfatai before an Ilorin Magistrates Court at Centre Igboro where she is asking for alimony in the amount of N25m.
Reliable sources said contrary to previous report by OrijoReporter, Amir Suite, a hotel Shola used to manage but was chased out of the place by Abdulfatai has not been sold. It was said that the former couple are fighting over the ownership of the hotel located at Kaduna Road, Adewole, Ilorin, and the case is before an Ilorin High Court.
During this stalemate, Amir Suites was at one time vandalised, and twelve plasma television sets, among other items were carted away.
