Journalists were sent out of court during a seating at a state high court in Ede, Osun state yesterday, Thursday November 19th. A judge seating barred the journalists in the courtroom from covering the divorce case of billionaire Adedeji Adeleke, the father of Nigerian pop star Davido.
The judge, Justice A. O. Oguntade had on Monday, November 16, prevented journalists who were present at the court by chasing them out of the court room. He repeated the same deed on Thursday.
On entering the court, Oguntade said, “Journalists present in this court should go out. I repeat, journalists present in this court should go out now.”
Armed policemen then respectfully ushered the journalists out of the courtroom.
The court say the parties involved in the divorce case do not want publicity of the matter.
Davido’s father Mr. Deji tried his hands on marriage again few years ago after the death of his first wife, Dr. Vero Adeleke. He married one Teju Adeleke, who has never been seen with him at any event. The childless marriage met a dead end less than 3 years after their marriage. It was gathered that, both Deji and Teju tried their possible best to make the marriage work but all was an effort in futility.
