Ex-Kwara Governorship candidate drags student lover to court over N750k spent on her
Senator Sulyman Makanjuola Ajadi, an ex-Governorship candidate who contested for Kwara State Governorship seat under the Alliance for Democracy (AD), dragged his lover, Haleemat Temitope Abdulazeez, a student of Kwara State University (KWASU), for defrauding him to the tune of N750k.
The NationalPilot reports that in the motion ex-parte dated 31st August 2017, which Salman Jawondo, counsel to the ex-Governorship candidate approached the court with “The plaintiff/applicant’s claim against the defendant is for recovery of debt and/or liquidated money demanded.”
Ajadi who met his lover two years ago through a chatting social network ‘WhatsApp’, told the court that since Haleemat failed to cede to his marriage proposal, hence the need to claim money expended on her education.
“When she finally came to my house at Foyeke Street, Tanke area, she knelt, crying that I should please help her secure admission into either University of Ilorin, Al-Hikmah University or KWASU. I promised to help after asking of her parent,” he stressed.
Ajadi further told the court that after Haleemat secured admission at KWASU, she approached him for a loan of N550k to offset her school fees, adding that the father promised to pay whenever government pays his 14-month salary arrears.
However their relationship took a dramatic twist the day he jokingly sought Haleemat’s hand in marriage, according to him, she stopped coming to him for about a month.
Ajadi further told the court that after a week, Haleemat visited him again to demand for a loan of N200k to help her parents. “Now that they’ve collected the money, things have changed. They hardly pick calls,” he lamented.
The PDP chieftain stated that despite informing one Dr. Oladimeji, who helped secure admission for the girl, about the sudden change in her character, nothing has changed. The court however adjourned the matter to 15th February, 2018, for cross examination and defence.
