Bilikis Erinle and her husband
Bilikis Erinle, a Nigerian lady who is a YouTuber, has claimed that her kids and some of her properties were forcefully taken away from her by thugs allegedly sponsored by her husband, Ademola Adeshina.
The popular Youtuber, @bilikis_signature, narrated that the incident happened on Tuesday, January 26, in front of her kids’ school, Spring of Life, Lakowe, Lagos State.
According to her, some of her properties taken away are phones, laptops, and a car.
Apart from her properties that were taken away, the YouTuber with over 33,000 followers on Instagram said over 200 videos were deleted from her YouTube account.
While expressing concern over the safety of her children, @bilikis_signature lamented that she was not allowed to make a phone call or record the attack.
However, attempts to reach Ademola Adeshina for his side of the story proved abortive.
He neither picked his phone calls nor responded to a text message forwarded to him.
In a video on her Instagram page, Bilikis said, “I just had to come out because my kids were abducted and the car was taken forcefully. I need your help.
“On Tuesday morning, while I was dropping my kids in their school, I was attacked. The proprietress of the school and the headteacher, Mr Seun, had to come out. I was being attacked by the touts when the father of my children surfaced with his mother, sister, brother, and cousin to take my kids forcefully.
“When he came, the first thing he was telling them was that they should not allow me to make any call or video. He was attacking me, which is why I left him in the first place. He attacked me and took my laptop and everything away. Even a stranger that came to drop her kids wondered why he could do that to the mother of his kids.”
Bilikis wondered why her husband took the kids forcefully, noting that she had “reported to the right authorities”.
She added, “I could imagine how traumatised my children are right now. Taking them forcefully from me when it is not as if I denied you access to them. Even if I don’t allow you to have access to them, you should go about it the right way. All you needed to do was to involve human rights organisations or the police. They will invite and question me, then they look at how we can settle this.
“I had told you that when you come let us look at how we can settle this. But you came from Kuwait to forcefully abduct my children – something you cannot do where you came from. Right now, I don’t know where my kids are.
“Not only that, he took my phone and deleted all my videos -208 videos – knowing that this is my main source of income. We were about to celebrate 300,000 subscribers. The income coming from here is what I use to pay the school fees of your children. I have the receipts with me.
“This is a man that for two years was receiving my Youtube earnings. I am a hardworking person. You have been violent and I kept enduring for the sake of the children. For how long will I continue to endure this?
“We both have rights. We should both have access to the kids. I cannot imagine what will be in the memory of the children. When my parents called his parents to intervene, they said it was a wrong number. On a normal day, the kids are scared of him.”
When contacted, Ademola’s mum and father did not pick calls put across to their telephone lines, neither did they respond to text messages.
