Court grants Atiku’s former wife custody of children


‎An Upper Area Court in Kubwa, Abuja, on Tuesday ordered Atiku Abubakar, son of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, to hand over the custody of his three sons to his divorced wife, who is the mother of the children.

Sherif had instituted the suit against her ex-husband, Abubakar, urging the court to grant her the right of custody of their three children.

The children currently reside with her ex-husband, Abubakar. ‎

The judge, Bashir Danmaisule, granted her prayers in a judgment on Tuesday.

He ruled that there was no basis to deprive her of the custody of her children under Islamic law.
