Exposed: Real Reasons Tunde Gbadamosi was thrown out of Amen estate, + All the dirty details inside!

Published

on

More details on the frosty relationship between former Lagos governorship candidate and politician, Babatunde Gbadamosi and his ex wife, Sade Balogun have emerged.

While Gbadamosi has been all over the place crying foul and claiming part ownership of Amen Estate, a Highbrow Estate in Lagos, Sade who is Chief Executive Officer of the holding company, Redbricks Home International Limited, has renounced her former husband and disclosed that he was nothing more than a mere sleeping partner who did not have a single financial commitment in the business and had since voluntarily resigned from his position as a director of the company.

Trouble started brewing between the duo when Babatunde Gbadamosi met and married the London based daughter of a top politician, Yinka Balogun, now Yinka Balogun Gbadamosi.

While Gbadamosi has been putting out statements warning clients not to do business with Redbricks Homes, his ex wife, Sade released a statement proving that the politician willingly resigned in the presence of his lawyer and a witness, with proof of his resignation letter.

The statement which was released in top national dailies reads:

PUBLIC NOTICE TO ALL INVESTORS AND POTENTIAL INVESTORS

The attention of the Management of Redbrick Homes International Ltd, developers of Amen Estate phase 1, phase 2 and phase 3, has been drawn to certain materials in circulation to the effect that Mr Babatunde Olalere Gbadamosi is associated with Redbrick Homes International Ltd and its real estate projects.

For the avoidance of doubt, once upon a time, Mr Gbadamosi, a full time Politician, used to be a sleeping partner/shareholder without any financial investment and one of the Directors of Redbrick Homes International Ltd, but he has since voluntarily transferred, for consideration, the entirety of his shares in Redbrick Homes Intl Ltd and has also resigned his directorship of its Board since July 1, 2021.

The Board composition, shareholding structure and share capital of Redbrick Homes International Ltd has accordingly changed completely. Folasade Balogun

(formerly Folasade Gbadamosi) remains the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Redbrick Homes Intl Ltd, a position she has served in since the inception of the

company and under her leadership, Redbrick Homes Intl Ltd has continued to deliver quality service to its customers uninterrupted. These facts can easily be verified at the Corporate Affairs Commission.

However, we are aware that Babatunde is challenging his own voluntary resignation, that was signed in front of two of his counsel, two of our counsel and a notary public, on the grounds that he signed under duress.

Our Lawyers, Babalakin & Co are dealing with this. The Suit No is: FHC/L/CS/742/2021 at the Federal High Court, Lagos before Justice A.O Faji.

For over 12 years, Redbrick Homes International Ltd have been one of the leading and most reliable posh properties provider in Nigeria. Our dedication and commitment to our cause remain unwavering, and you all can be rest assured that your satisfaction and the safety of your properties and investments will never cease to be our topmost priority now and always. Our doors are open, and we also reassure you that acquiring lands and properties with us are not only completely safe and risk-free, it is also the choice thing to do.

We use this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to all our customers and potential customers for standing by us over the years and wish to reassure them even more, that we would not compromise on our excellent service that they have become accustomed to. Thank you.

Redbrick Homes Intl Ltd

Concerned society watchers are wondering why Gbadamosi is filled with so much bile, after hurting his ex wife so badly and why his new found wife has embarked on a smear campaign against her.

According to a resident of Amen Estate, home owners were very pleased when Gbadamosi was sent packing by Sade:

“This was a man who strutted the estate with so much arrogance and high handedness. He was always fighting with residents. There was a time a driver was waiting to pick up his boss and Gbadamosi began to raise hell because the driver packed on the road just outside the boss’ house.

He interfered in almost every home, would be quarrelling over sprinklers, people going about their normal life, jogging around the estate, as if they had no right. He was a menace that we are so happy is gone. Good riddance to bad rubbish”

Those in the know say Sade picked the former guber aspirant from ignominy and gave him a bearing through which he could even vie to be governor but he broke her heart and her trust:

“The best thing to happen to Sade is kicking out that man from her life.

He was a serial womaniser who even caused problems between a couple in that estate.

It’s so funny that he is the one now accusing her of infidelity when we all know how he ran after women, married and unmarried.

Do you know that this man was always going behind collecting ten percent money from contractors, behind Sade’s back?

One good thing though is that Sade was smart enough not to give him full control of the business, he would have wrecked it.

This is a man who would corner intermediary agents wanting to sell homes and tell them home owners must approach the company and the company must act as agent to sell any house within the estate. All he wanted was to corner the money.

He was a big man without cash.

Why else will a wife throw out a husband with his clothes and only one car? Director my foot!” Said another resident.

Many wonder why Sade has remained silent especially as the marriage between Tunde and Yinka was contracted when they were still legally married.

“Do you know she endured eight months of cyber bullying from that woman and kept quiet?

She should sue him for bigamy. The man is just a gold digger but she is considering the children, poor woman.” Said a family source.

Social media watchers are regaled with mudslinging directed at Sade by the new wife, Yinka Balogun Gbadamosi and wonder why a woman who came to snatch another woman’s husband is now the aggressor.

A keen observer noted that Sade has been the target of Yinka’s post for almost six months now:

“She behaves so foolishly, she thinks she has seen husband, she has forgotten that the cane used in beating the first wife is waiting for the second wife.

Gbadamosi is a smooth talker and liar who has simply latched on this new one for political and other gains, her own day will come…these London girls should start using their brains”.

Another source close to the family said,

“Obviously, Tunde is using Yinka to fight his ex.

Gbadamosi himself is not talking about any infidelity, it is Yinka who came to take another person’s husband who is talking.

As someone who has worked in government house, has properties to her name, she should be very careful herself. I learned she has moved into another Estate on the Island with her new husband, I hope she knows that he drove the new car close to Amen Estate just to show off?

This new woman who is obviously over exuberant thinking she has seen husband, should listen to the advice of her elders. A word is enough for the wise. A Gigolo is always a Gigolo.

“The truth of the matter is that, Yinka Balogun thought he was chairman of Amen Estate and probably still believes that lie.

Gbadamosi too was hoping to leverage on her dad’s position.

Gold digger met gold digger.” The source stressed further.

Giving more insight, sources close to both parties disclosed that Gbadamosi met his new wife Yinka Balogun on Facebook and got married to her on his wedding anniversary to Sade, which according to the source, is very sinister:

“Do you know Tunde and Yinka met on Facebook and coincidentally Yinka and Sade share same surname, Balogun.

As if there is something else behind the whole affair, Tunde chose his wedding anniversary to Sade to wed his new found lover.

Where we come from, we would say, you want to cancel one to replace another. God has been on Sade’s side because we learned that her ex husband is allegedly very fetish”.

As it stands now, it is obvious that the tumultuous business relationship between Babatunde Gbadamosi and Sade has broken down irretrievably and Gbadamosi has been kicked out of the business for good.

I Know My Husband Likes Women – Olori Sekinat Elegushi

Published

on

Olori Sekinat, the first wife of Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, Elegushi of Ikate-Elegushi, said she is not bothered by her husband’s love for women.

In an interview with BBC Yoruba, Sekinat, who married the monarch in 2003, said she knew at the beginning of their relationship that the monarch loves women.

The queen, who argued that all men are promiscuous, said she decided to continue with the relationship because of her love for him.

“My mum had a shop at Lagos Island. That’s where the king saw me and picked interest in me… I gave him a chance and we became friends,” she said.

“However, I told him that I had a boyfriend at the time but he said there’s no problem with that since we were only going to be friends.

Whenever I tell him that I’m going to see my boyfriend, he usually insists on accompanying me there. In fact, he knew my boyfriend then.

“In 2003, he proposed to me. I love him and he also loves me… despite the fact that he had other women in his life.

“For someone like him, who loves women, I ought to have turned him down that I cannot cope but we got along till he proposed and we got married.”

The monarch took a second wife in 2019, Olori Hadizat Elegushi.

Reflecting on how she copes with the monarch’s love for women, she said: “God has given me a patient and enduring spirit since childhood, my husband knows that I don’t disturb him on issues that have to do with women.

“That is because I know he truly loves me, and he always puts me first. So, I’m not scared because I know no one can take my place.

“It’s basically all men, it does not have to do with my husband alone. It is now left for the wife at home to handle the situation well. There is no man that is not promiscuous, it’s not possible except those that are yet to be born.”

How Green Space Recyling’s Yemi Megbope Allegedly Dupes Investor Of N42million

Published

on

 

Being a sustainability adherent, Joshua Adegbola participated in a seminar organised by the Lagos Business School in 2019 with the hope that the platform would connect him with the right people and ultimately propel him into realising his lifelong ambition – owning a recycling plant.

 

During the seminar, he met Yemi Megbope, who was equally a recycling enthusiast, and thought his prayer had been answered.

 

Yemi Megbope.

 

After the exchange of ideas and an extensive conversation on recycling, Megbope offered Adegbola a stimulant – an invitation to her recycling plant in Ikorodu, Lagos.

 

“I paid a visit to her factory called Green Space Recycling Services Ltd. in Ikorodu in 2019 and was impressed by what I saw. I became so excited that I expressed my desire to set up something similar to hers,” Adegbola said.

 

The N34 million invoice Megbope sent to Adegbola

 

The PSP operator said he began making payments to Megbope in tranches but was forced to ask for a refund when he noticed a grey area in the agreement they had.

 

“When I started having doubts about all the things she told me, I took my money back from her. However, when she gave me assurances that my funds were safe, I started paying the money back to her in tranches,” Adegbola said.

 

“She said there was no problem and that I should reach out to her anytime I was ready.

 

“I asked her what it would cost me to set up a similar recycling centre, especially in the area of getting all necessary equipment needed for the business, and she said she would find out and get back to me.”

 

Adegbola said he reached out to Megbope in June 2020 when he felt he was ready to start the business.

 

“When I told her I was ready, she gave me a quotation of N29.2 million and a list of the equipment that would be transported to Nigeria from China once I made payment,” Adegbola said.

“When she gave me the list, I told her I personally didn’t have that kind of money but there were people that could borrow me.”

 

The moment Adegbola recommenced payment for the equipment he needed, the narrative changed.

 

“After paying a considerable amount out of the N29.2 million she said the equipment would cost me, she reached out to me and said the dollar exchange rate had changed and that I now had to pay N34 million,” Adegbola said

 

“I couldn’t go back at that point, so I had to make the additional payment she requested.

 

“In February 2021, I completed the payment after I was able to raise the money from friends.

 

“Mogbope told me my equipment would arrive Nigeria in March, 2021.

 

“For me to be able to clear the machines when they eventually arrive the Apapa port, she initially told me, it would cost N4.6 million. But later, she said it would cost me N6.6 million.

 

“At the end of the day, the entire amount I paid to Mogbope was N42,080,000 million. It was also agreed that the equipment I ordered would come in ‘two full containers.’”

 

 

 

WHAT ADEGBOLA ORDERED VERSUS WHAT HE GOT

 

 

 

Yemi Megbope

 

The goods did arrive the Apapa port in March, 2021, as Megbope promised. However, they did not come in ”two full containers” as promised and this sent an immediate signal to Adegbola that something was not right.

 

“When the goods arrived, I noticed they were scattered in six different containers,” the PSP operator said.

 

“I also saw that they loaded other peoples’ goods with mine in all six containers. I quickly sensed that the equipment she had ordered on my behalf was not even up to two containers and that was why she had them scattered in other people’s containers.”

 

Just like he had suspected, when the machines were brought out, Adegbola realised that they were not complete.

 

“Without wasting any further time, I decided to confront her about the incomplete machines that were delivered to me,” Adegbola said.

 

“This was when she said the money I paid her could not buy the whole equipment and that she only later decided to buy the most important ones I would be needing among them.

 

“She added that I should still be able to start my plant with the incomplete but key machines that were delivered to me. She even advised me to buy the missing ones locally.

 

“I became so sad because the equipment Megbope handed over to me were not worth N42 million. I also became quite depressed because I knew I had been defrauded.”

 

THE ACTUAL COST OF THE MACHINES MEGBOPE COLECTED N40M FOR AND STILL DID NOT DELIVER

 

Adegbola told us that he decided to do an independent finding online to know the actual cost of the machine Megbope collected over N40 million for.

 

“Luckily for me, I came in contact with the actual Chinese company that Megbope purchased the equipment from and they sent me all relevant correspondents on the inquiry I made,” Adegbola said.

 

“I then requested for an invoice from the company, and when they sent it, the equipment she collected about $100,000 from me for – because as of then a dollar was still being exchanged for N430 – was less than $25,000!

 

“This meant that the actual cost of all the equipment was within the region of N15 million.

 

“How could she have collected almost triple the actual amount from me and still not deliver all the equipment I needed? I was really mad.”

 

“Despite making over N27 million off me, she still chose not to deliver the complete equipment. Is that not wickedness?”

 

THE MEETING

 

Adegbola told our correspondent that he later scheduled a meeting with Megbope to allow both parties fashion out a solution on the matter.

 

“In the meeting, I told her my findings and the actual amount the Chinese company told me the equipment cost and she gave an excuse that she didn’t go to China herself,” Adegbola said.

 

“She also claimed she made the purchase through an intermediary.

 

“I then asked her, ‘You claimed to have used an intermediary, yet after swindling me this much, you still did not deliver all I requested for?’”

 

Adegbola said he insisted that Megbope get in touch with the intermediary so he could speak to him directly but she became evasive.

 

“I told her I paid for two containers so that my equipment wouldn’t get mixed up with those of others. It was clear she had my equipment scattered in different containers because of the fraud she wanted to perpetrate,” he said.

 

 

 

THE FAILED PROMISES THAT FOLLOWED

 

Adegbola said he had been asking Megbope to deliver the outstanding equipment since March, 2021, but she had continued to give him excuses.

 

In February, he got his lawyer to write her a demand letter.

 

 

 

First Demand Letter Adegbola Wrote to Megbope

 

“In February 2022, I got my lawyer to write her a letter demanding that she address my concern by making the other outstanding equipment available,” Adegbola said.

 

First Demand Letter Adegbola Wrote to Megbope

 

“Her lawyer wrote us back that the reason I did not get all the complete equipment was that there was ‘a mix up from China’. He also said they would be delivered soon. Till date, however, there has been no further response from them.

 

“I later asked her to pay me the equivalent of the outstanding equipment so that I could make the purchase on my own but she still did not respond.”

 

Adegbola said he wrote another letter to Megbope in September but still did not get any favourable response.

 

Message Between Agebola and Megbope

 

“She later sent me a series of WhatsApp messages to ask me where I would want her to deliver the items to. I sent the address to her and to her lawyer also,” Adegbola said.

 

“Till we speak, she still has not delivered them.”

 

Another Demand Letter Written in March

 

Adegbola said he had been getting messages from his creditors to repay the loans he collected from them between 2020 and 2021.

 

I don’t know why she doesn’t want me to flourish,” Adegbola said.

 

“The loan that I secured in order to pay her for the equipment has now risen to over N80 million because of the interest I am supposed to pay on it. It has continued to accumulate interest at a compounding rate.

 

“She has killed my business and I know she is after my life. One of the things that can throw a man into depression is debt, especially when it is an unserviceable debt.

 

“Every day, I wake up, go about my business and come back home to an ever-increasing debt, and this is because Megbope has decided to hold on to what could have brought forth the income I could have used in repaying the debt.

 

“It’s been over 20 months since I made the payment to her.”

 

 

 

REVELATION FROM THE SOURCE

 

Final Demand Notice Issued in October

 

Adegbola said he later reached out to a Chinese contact who also knew about the development.

 

What the Chinese contact revealed to me was disturbing,” Adegbola said.

 

“He told me that Megbope sold my equipment to another person. I also was able to establish that she paid around N15 million for the equipment and kept over N27 million for herself. Yet she did not supply all she was supposed to supply to me.

 

“I challenged her to bring out the list of equipment she ordered and the prices that were given to her by the manufacturers, but she never released the actual price list to me. She only sent me the total sum I was to pay.”

 

Adegbola said that apart from the N27 million fraud, Megbope had also refused to deliver essential machines like a rising tank, three screw loaders and one hot washing tank to him.

 

“It has been a tormenting journey. It is an episode that can make you lose your mind,” the PSP operator said.

 

‘OUR LAWYERS ARE ALREADY SORTING ISSUES OUT’

 

When contacted Megbope for comments on the matter, she said her lawyer was already working with Adegbola’s lawyer to get the issue resolved.

 

“He already told a lawyer to write to me on the issue. I have also contacted mine and they are already exchanging correspondence,” Megbope said.

 

When she was further asked whether she would like to react to the allegation levelled against her, she said she preferred to allow her lawyer do his job.

 

“When lawyers are having conversations, it is always better to allow them do their job. At the end of the day, the legal route is like the ultimate [sic],” she said.

 

After the conversation Megbope had with our reporter, she again reached out to Adegbola in November 2022, promising to deliver the equipment in one week. But she failed again in making good the promise.

My 3 Daughters Can Stand Shoulder-to Shoulder With Any Man — Olori Sekinat Elegushi

Published

on

 

Olori Sekinat Aramide Elegushi, wife of Lagos popular traditional ruler, Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, has revealed that she is not bothered about not producing an heir for her husband.

 

 

 

In a recent interview with BBC News, the elegant Queen of Ikate Kingdom said she is not worried but has been so blessed to have three adorable daughters together with Oba Elegushi—who she married in 2003— and they have both raised the girls to stand shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts in any part of the world.

 

 

 

She admitted that while women are not allowed to sit on the Elegushi royal throne, her daughters are capable of competing on an equal footing with men anywhere in the world.

 

 

 

“I never believed I wouldn’t have a male child but God in His infinite mercies gave me three beautiful daughters. Of course when it comes to ascending the throne, female children cannot inherit the throne. But I am so proud of my daughters because there is no place where any of their male counterparts stand, my daughters will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them,” Olori boasted in the interview released on Wednesday and conducted in the Yoruba language.

 

 

 

The Olori’s experience of successfully raising her three daughters has inspired her passionate love for the underprivileged and showing love to children through her Quality and Selfless Empowerment, QSE Foundation.

 

 

 

Speaking passionately about the foundation which holds annual children’s parties, and always well attended by several children in the community and beyond, Olori Sekinat said: “We care for mothers and their children. We have also been able to help many women in the community. The face of the kingdom has really changed. We have been able to introduce some modernity into the way things are done.”

 

 

 

Fielding questions on how different women swarm around her charming and well-heeled husband; Olori Sekinat said she has never been bothered by this as she claimed that it is natural for her husband to be attracted to different women because of his look and status as a first class modern monarch.

 

 

 

She however expressed confidence in her husband’s love and knowing that he prioritises her above every other woman. “God has given me the virtues of patience and endurance since I was young. My husband knows I don’t make a fuss about other women because I know he loves me and puts me first,” she exuded.

 

 

 

Olori Sekinat recalled meeting the king as a student at her late mother’s shop on Lagos Island, but he did not tell her anything about his royal status.

 

 

 

She claimed to have voiced concerns when her husband was selected for the throne at the time he —Oba Elegushi— was already rising politically and on the verge of getting the ticket to represent his people in Eti Osa at the House of Representatives but the wishes of the people prevailed.
