DIVORCE SUIT: CHEVRON CHIEF DR BABALOLA ALLEGEDLY TENDERED HIS RESIGNATION LETTER FEW WEEKS TO RETIREMENT.
The Chief Medical Director of an oil giant ,Chevron Nigeria Ltd, Dr Rotimi Babalola on Thursday proceeded on retirement over a divorce scandal with his wife, Adediwura Adebukola.
The development is not unconnected with the suit before Lagos High Court which restrained him from evicting his wife from their matrimonial home.
Dr Babalola allegedly tendered his retirement letter on Thursday August 12, 2021 when the news of his divorce suit before the court became public. He was billed to retire in September when he would have clocked 60 years.
Justice Olukayode Ogunjobi specifically barred Dr. Babalola by himself his servants, privies, or workmen from entering, trespassing, or otherwise disturbing the possession of the building at N0 8, service Crescent, Cooperative Villa, Badore, Ajah, Lagos pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice filed in the divorce petition filed by his wife.
Dr & Mrs Babalola when the going was good
The judge granted the order after hearing arguments canvassed by the petitioner’s counsel, Adeleke Agbola, who pleaded for accelerated grant of the injunction in view of the insistence of the Chevron CMD to unlawfully evict his wife from the matrimonial home.
Efforts to get one of the Chevron spokesperson Mr Victor Anyaegbudika reaction proved abortive likewise the email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
The motion on notice was adjourned to September 20, 2021 when the Lagos State High Court will resume from its annual vacation.
Mrs. Babalola had earlier filled the petition before Lagos State High Court in Suit No: LD/9231WD/2021 when all the attempts by counsel to her husband, Olusola Idowu SAN of Olusola Idowu & Co., and her counsel Adeleke of Cheakley Chambers to make the husband embrace peaceful settlement failed to yield any result.
