“I haven’t seen my kids in 10 months. No one should use kids as bait in a f!ght” – OAP Do2dtun cries out in touching Father’s Day post
Nigerian on-air personality, video jockey, actor, and media entrepreneur Kayode Ojuolape Oladotun, better known as Do2dtun, have cried out about his inability to have access to his children.
Recall that in November 2021, Do2dtun’s wife, Omotayo, filed for divorce, citing forced abortion, domestic violence, and emotional abuse.
According to the petition filed before Justice A. I. Akobi of Court 23 of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Suit Number: GWD/PET/25/2021, the on-air personality allegedly compelled his wife to terminate her third pregnancy as a married woman.
The court granted the couple, who married in 2013 and have two children, joint custody of the children, a decision which Omotayo did not oppose pending the final determination of the suit in court. Read here.
However, in a touching Father’s Day post on his Instagram page, Do2dtun revealed that he hasn’t seen his children in ten months as he has been denied access to them, despite the court granting them joint custody.
“Today marks a whole year since they sent me that video, and it has been 10 months since I last saw you. I miss you so much. No amount of lies, games, deceit, or slow legal processes can break me. Fife and Fiore, Daddy just wants his time with you, as he deserves it, but they deny it; they disobey the law because they are scared, cowards, and immature.
“No one should use kids as bait or weapons in a fight. Once again, they picked the wrong one this time. Every effort has been made to prevent me from exercising my rights as a father, but I won’t give in or break. I will keep fighting the right way, even though some believe they have a monopoly on madness and breaking the law. I simply don’t want to play that game just because of these wonderful kids. I am law-abiding, but I am not a fool.
“If you are a father out there, for the sake of posterity and goodwill, fight for your place and your right to be in their lives. Every child needs their father just as much as they need their mother. No one should use children as a means of power or to substitute their emotions.”
