Aminu Abubakar, son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, was released from prison custody on Wednesday after earlier being remanded by the court.
This was announced by Festus Keyamo, who is representing Mr. Abubakar's estranged wife, Ummi Fatima Bolori.
Mr. Abubakar and Ms. Bolori have been in a legal battle over the custody of their children. The couple had divorced in 2011 and had agreed to allow the children to spend time with their father while on vacation.
In 2013, however, Mr. Abubakar allegedly refused to return the children to their mother.
On October 11, 2017, Chief Magistrate K.B. Ayeye of the Tinubu Magistrate Court in Lagos ordered Mr. Abubakar to produce his six-year-old son in court, but he failed to do so. Mr. Abubakar was subsequently ordered to be remanded by the court on Wednesday, October 18.
However, according to Ms. Bolori’s attorney, Festus Keyamo, Mr. Abubakar later produced his son in court as ordered. He was then released from prison custody.
Mr. Keyamo added that Ms. Bolori has since been reunited with her two children.
