Benedicta Elechi, the wife of Nigeria On Air Personality, Daddy Freeze, has called out the management of Green Springs Secondary School for ignoring her stay of execution order.
Taatebudz, as she is fondly called on Instagram, accused the school management of conniving with her ex husband to release their son to him.
Taking to Instagram, Mrs Elechi, via a lengthy post and a video narrated how the school teamed up with her ex husband, Paul Odekina, to release her child to him, despite her serving the school with a stay of execution order and appeal.
According to her, she and her ex had a standing agreement on paper, their son will spend Christmas with him while he would spend Easter with her.
She honored her side of the agreement, however, when it was her estranged husband turn, the school management released her son to her ex husband informing them to honor the stay of execution.
She further explained that the management of the school has stayed mute on the case despite pre action letter by her lawyers to respond to the subject in seven days.
Mrs Elechi, therefore warned that in the event of the school failing to do the needful, she will be forced to sue them to court.
“Hello everyone, my name is Benedicta Elechi, I am the managing director of Taatebudz Eastern and Riverine Cuisine Nigeria limited.
I want to use this medium to call the attention of well meaning Nigerians and concerned parents to Greensprings secondary School, Awoyaya, were my son attends.
Despite my serving them with a duly filed motion for a stay of execution and appeal. Greensprings School,Awoyaya went ahead to release my son to my ex husband, Paul Odekina, which in my opinion is an error in their interpretation of the law as concerns stay of execution and appeal. For a case, which is only in the first instance and can go as high as the Supreme Court of Nigeria, before decisive measures can be taken.
In this instance, maintaining status quo should have been the norm, as against taking steps that in my humble opinion seem very prejudiced and mischievous. To say that I am totally disappointed is an understatement. For a school that claims to be child centered.
Prior to this, we had a standing agreement on paper, that my son was supposed to spend the Christmas holiday with his Father while he spends the Easter holiday with me. I ensured that my son spent his Christmas with his father.
But getting to my turn for the Easter holidays, my son was released to my ex husband, Paul Odekina, despite letters from my legal team to the school informing them to go or the appeal and the stay of execution.
None of the other schools my children attend made such an ignorant blunder after receiving my application for a stay of execution and appeal, thereby affirming my suspicion of a collusion between the management of Greenspring school and my ex husband, Paul Odekina.
My question for Greenspring school Management, Awoyaya is :
1. For an organization like yours that has been in existence for over 30 years, I believe you must have an experienced legal team to advise on the implications of a Stay of execution. Why did the Greenspring school Management choose not to maintain the status quo, despite being dully served?”.
