Reporters had in 2023 reported how the businessman allegedly evicted the lawyer from a multimillion Naira office building he gifted her in Abuja.

The building is located at 36, Birao Street, Wuse 2, back of AP Plaza, off Adetokunbo Ademola Street in Abuja.

“Adaobi trespassed into the former office space Ayeni gifted her, she also allegedly made an attempt to retrieve personal belongings (an air conditioner) there, this has escalated tensions between the two parties again.

“Her reasons for the unauthorised entry was not acceptable to Ayeni, which necessitated the report of the incidence at the Wuse 2 Police Station, Abuja. Alagwu was subsequently invited to the police station to answer to the allegations against her.

“In her response, she claimed that she never visited the property but sent one of her persons to pick up her air conditioner from the building. In the presence of the DPO, Ayeni who joined the meeting via a phone call, warned Alagwu to keep away from his property and his family.

“While this was going on, Alagwu insulted Ayeni and talked over, this made the police chief angry and he ordered that Alagwu be detained behind the counter until she calmed and displayed decorum. She was then detained for several hours,” a source said.

Another source added, “Funny enough, on her firm’s official website, the address that’s still there is the same address that she was evicted from.

“And she’s been evicted from there for months. Does this mean she’s not been actively practicing law or gainfully employed or doesn’t have a new office address that’ll make her leave the old address that she was evicted from on her website till now despite all the disgrace?”

On January 16, 2023, Reporters first published the report claiming a paternity tussle between Tunde Ayeni and the lawyer, Adaobi Alagwu.

The report delved into their alleged relationship, tracing a dating history since 2019 and connections to prominent personalities within the Abuja social sphere.

Meanwhile, the businessman had sent Adaobi a cease and desist letter warning her to keep off him and the use of his name, a letter she acknowledged and a copy was then sent to the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) to void any international passport presented by Adaobi and her child, bearing his name.

Declaring any such document illegitimate, Ayeni, speaking through his lawyer, Dele Adesina (SAN) established that neither the lawyer nor her daughter is entitled to the use of his name on travel documents as he has no familiar relationship with them.

He disclosed this by copying the NIS, a “Cease and Desist” legal notice he sent to the estranged lover.

The letter titled, “Withdrawal of Consent for Use of the Family Name ‘Ayeni’ With Respect To Your Daughter Omarosa” claimed that Ayeni has no blood relationship with the daughter.

It read, “We act as solicitors to Dr. J. O. Ayeni and Mrs. Abiola Ayeni both of Asokoro, F.C.T Abuja, hereinafter referred ot as ‘our clients’ and on whose firm instructions we write you this ‘CEASE and DESIST’ letter.

“It is surprising to learn of this remark credited to you despite the well published series of disclaimers of fatherhood by our Dr. J.O. Ayeni, you could stil dishonestly be making such an unacceptable and untruthful remarks in your desperate attempt ot confuse the unsuspecting public in respect of the fatherhood of your daughter which our Dr. J.O.
