Drama As Professor Felicia Durojaiye Oyekanmi Drags Elder Brother Adebayo Durojaiye To Court

2 professors born by same parents are locked in a fierce battle over inheriting their late mother’s two houses in Lagos State, western Nigeria.

The battle which started within the family has been extended to a Lagos High Court where one of the parties is seeking redress.

The two gladiators are Professor Felicia Durojaiye Oyekanmi of the University of Lagos, Akoka ,Yaba and her elder brother, Professor Adebayo Durojaiye.

Trouble started after their mother, Madam Ibidun Durojaiye died in 1999 and left behind the properties for the two of them who are her only surviving children.
The two storey buildings are located at 35, Sura Mogaji Street, Ilupeju Estate and 128, Railwayline in Idi-Olowo in Mushin.

There are also other properties in their home town in Ilesa, Osun State, which are not in contention.
But the bone of the contention are the two houses she built in Lagos which Felicia is insisting she will inherit alone, while Adebayo should take other houses built in Ilesa.
This was rejected by Adebayo who insisted that the houses must be shared equally between them.

The friction arising between Felicia and Adedayo resulted in the litigation.
In the suit number ID/955/2007 the two parties made counter claims to the buildings in Lagos. Felicia claimed that, according to native custom, the houses belong to her in accordance with the sharing agreement reached after the burial of their late mom by the family.
On his part Adebayo claimed that the family did not share the houses in that manner and as such she cannot inherit the houses alone.

Adebayo claimed that when they could not resolve the matter between them, members of their family were summoned for a meeting by the family head, Chief S.A. Durojaiye in Lagos.
Adebayo averred that at the meeting it was agreed that since Adebayo was the older child, he should inherit the ground floors of the houses while Felicia should inherit the upper floors.
But she rejected this decision, said Adebayo.

Felicia alleged that she was the one taking care of Adebayo’s five children for several years.
When Adebayo attempted to take possession of the buildings, Felicia resisted.
This allegedly led to the involvement of thugs and the police, yet the issue could not be resolved.

The fighting continued until Felicia contacted her lawyer and filed a suit at the Lagos High Court to determine who inherits the houses in question.
The matter has been adjourned till 4 February, 2016 before the presiding Judge, Mrs L. A. W. Folami.

  1.

  2. Felicia my sister, why allow this to get to the public domain? Firstly, Bayo is your elder and should enjoy the primacy of claim, moreso as a male child.
    You claimed to have taken care of his five children. Did you render him useless to warrant this, when you are both Professors? Where did his virtues go?
    Felicia, you must have had a long term devilish plan against Bayo if what one is reading here is correct: Thai in your greed, you want the lucrative Lagos properties, while pusing your elder brother to the less economical viable properties in the interior at Ilesha.
    It is because you both have lives that you are displaying this level of decadence at your age.
    Please look for some tapes of Bishop Oyedepo, you will realize you really do NOT need to fight on estate but labour well to have your own.
    If you short-change your brother as you are planning to do, how does his family perceive him?
    Bayo, the blessings of the Lord maketh rich without adding burden or sorrow. If your sister chooses to play the Lot, stay on God’s side like Abraham and see the God who changes tides.
    In all, this is saddening and unbecoming if what one reads here is factual and correct. Felicia’s husband, family and colleagues had better watched it with her. She is a greedy pig!
    I never knew you both but considering the locations of both properties and the winner takes it all mentality of Felicia, she must be a very desperate individual.
    Another sickening thing is that you are enstranging your chidren and by implication, destroying your mother’s most valuable legacy.
    Bayo too, check yourself and your life. Whatever you are doing, that predisposes you to this level of household or domestic marginalization, deserves some serious reflection and adjustment.
    Felicia my sister, for posterity sake, do not be selfish.

  3. Very greedy woman, I just wonder how this kind of woman will have respect for her husband. Why not share it equally and that of Ilesa as well. Or a spell has been cast on u after the death of ur mother. The woman will not be happy with u pple u know. Or is it too much learning and research that is worrying u. What will u leave for ur own children self.

  4. Well they said that tribes differs and culture gose with it, in the tribe i came from, woman has no say in the properity of both parents as long as there is a male child in the family, even though the male child is just 2 years before the depature of the their paents, the properity belong to him all, no matter how many female in the family, all lands, houses and cars belong to him alone if there are more male children, they will share their parent properity, if they decided, they may give to their sisters, but not by force like this ones, women can only protect the area she married to, that is her husband properity not her parents, unless she is only child of the family and no one to inherite her parent properity, then she will have the right over the property, but this is very bad for children of the same parent to sue themself to court, Madame plesase take one and give your elder brother one, he is your elder brother, at least the respect,stop fighting your blood brother you are inviting the outsiders to put fire between you and your brother which you will surely regraet with tears at last, remember that it is the same breast both of you suck, that your mother breast is what will judge any of you who offend his fellow, no pastor can cure it, no scarfised will stop the curse is it start.make peace with your only brother right now to avoid regreat.

  5. from the look of things, it is likely the are not from the same father. Both are highly educated to know about their family history. maybe the man that born the lady prof was likely the financial sponsor of the Lagos building. Nothing happen for nothing……08057323826

  7. The love of money is the root of evil. Who would believe these two highly educated people would be fighting over inheritance? Their mother did a marvelous job by giving them good solid education, but would be very saddened if the dead could look back and see what happens after their demise. As for those saying a woman has no say or inheritance rights in their culture, that is very unfair (thankful I don’t come from that culture, neither do I need inheritance). If women are not needed, God wouldn’t have created us. There has to be some fairness and equality when distributing inheritance. As for those two, please stop embarrassing your families and yourselves and resolve these issues amicably. What if you both die before the outcome of the lawsuit? After all, the owner of the properties has died, so why fight over someone else’s sweat?

  8. THIS WAS HOW MY STEP SISTERS STARTED KILLING EVERYONE IN OUR FAMILY ,

    MY OWN BROTHER TOOK OVER THE HOUSE THAT BELONG TO ME UP TILL TODAY AND SOLD HIS HOUSE AND MOVE INTO MY HOUSE ,

    SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST EVIL ,THE BEST IS TO KEEP AWAY FROM THIS SO CALLED LUNATIC,

    HE SAID TO ME , I WILL SHOW YOU POWER OF VOODOO IF YOU DARE TAKE ME TO COURT.

    THEN MY SISTER STARTED ARGUING WITH HIM , THEN, SHE SUDDENLY DIE VOMITING BLOOD AND BLEED FROM THE NOSE.
