Dr. Tosin Ajayi’s Children Repudiate Helen Prest’s Claim To Their Father’s Estate

Dr. Tosin Ajayi's Children Repudiate Helen Prest’s Claim To Their Father's Estate -Crystal News

The children of Mrs. Oluwayemisi Ajayi, the widow of Dr. Tosin Ajayi of First Foundation Medical Engineering Co. Ltd, have come out to debunk the false stories making the rounds on social media that, on the 7th of September 2021, the Federal High Court, Lagos, awarded Helen Prest, a mistress of the Late Dr. Tosin Ajayi, 50% of the estate of Dr. Tosin Ajayi.

According to the first child of Mrs. Oluwayemisi Ajayi, Mrs. Olutomi Deru (Nee Ajayi), “the order, which was strangely granted in the absence of the company and our Mum, only granted Helen Prest and her daughter permission to institute their main action and restrained our Mum from running the company pending the determination of the main suit.”

She said the orders were temporary orders and that the court did not make any order granting Helen Prest any share in the estate of their Dad contrary to the blatantly false and sensational stories being circulated in the social media.

According to her, “the court did not rule on any of the claims they are making in their main suit and they are not even claiming 50% of our Dad’s estate in their main suit. So, the social media reports are bizarre and at odds with the court’s order that one can only conclude that the reports were either sponsored by Helen Prest or issued by her supporters for mischievous purposes.”

The third child of Mrs. Oluwayemisi Ajayi, Mrs. Omolade Soetan (Nee Ajayi) also narrated that the orders were fraudulently obtained as no hearing notice was served on our Mum or the company or their lawyers, Kunle Adegoke & Co. “The court had previously granted certain interim orders (also in the absence of the Defendants) on 5th August 2021 and our lawyers had earlier filed an application to set aside those interim orders and the application was pending before the Court when the court made its September 7 order which is still pending before the court.

Helen Prest and her lawyers exhibited the highest level of desperation by pretending to have served our Mum with a hearing notice whereas they never did. They obtained the orders of the court fraudulently and our lawyers are taking the appropriate steps in this regard” she added.

Mrs. Omolade Soetan further stated that, just a few days before the court’s September 7 order, the Plaintiffs had served a counter-affidavit against the application filed by our mother to set aside the August 5 interim orders obtained by Helen Prest, which were based on the same information as the September 7 order.  “So, it was abundantly clear that the Defendants would not miss an opportunity to be heard on any other orders that the Plaintiffs were seeking. The Plaintiffs have become so desperate that they do not mind to win the matter fair or foul,” she said.

Mrs. Deru went on to say “regardless of whether there was any evidence of the service of a hearing notice before the court, it is quite puzzling that the judge would disregard our mother’s application to set aside its earlier orders that was before it and went on to hear the Plaintiffs’ application without giving the Defendants another opportunity to appear before the court.”

When asked if she and her siblings were ready to accommodate Helen Prest’s daughter, Tomisin, in the estate of their father, Mrs. Deru said that that has always been the case.

According to her, even though their Dad never introduced Tomisin to any member of the family as his daughter, they chose from the outset to accept her as their Dad’s daughter in good faith. “In fact, shortly after our Dad’s funeral, we wrote to Tomisin to join as an administratrix in our application to obtain Letters of Administration for our Dad’s estate, but Tomisin turned down the offer preferring to go it alone.  We later discovered that Tomisin and her Mum had shamelessly filed for Letters of Administration several months before our Dad’s funeral,”.

According to Mrs. Soetan, many things that Helen Prest has done since their Dad’s passing, has shown to them that her plan is to get not only a share of the estate for herself, notwithstanding that she was just a mistress, but to get more than half if not the entire estate to herself and her daughter.

Speaking about Helen Prest, Mrs. Deru said “the truth is that she’s a woman that aggressively pursues a public perception of grace and class, but she has shown us that all of that is just a huge façade – in reality,  she is a shameless and classless woman.
She wants a recognition that our Dad refused to legally grant her during his lifetime.

Now, we know why our Dad consistently refused to do so,” she added. “Our Dad was known to fight many land disputes all the way to the Supreme Court, and we’re ready to go the length with this case – all the way to the Supreme Court. This is just the beginning. Justice will prevail in the end,” she concluded.

She further narrated that their mother, Mrs. Oluwayemisi Ajayi, remained the legal wife of her father till death as the couple never divorced and that the funny narratives being spurn by Helen Prest are just meant to cover the fact that she only engaged in an illicit relationship with their father which produced Tomisin. She concluded that such a relationship, would never make Helen Prest a wife or a beneficiary of their father’s estate.

The matter before Justice Ringim has been transferred to the Administrative Judge for re-assignment and no date has been fixed for further hearing.

Hushpuppi Indicts DCP Abba Kyari, Makes UTurn On Fraud Allegation

Abba Kyari Vs Huspuppi-Crystal News

Hushpuppi has finally made a U-turn on the not guilty plea he previously made and would now be pleading guilty to the multi-million dollar fraud filled by the United States of America government.

This new turn of events seems to have ushered in new development as events, collaborators and beneficiaries would be unveiled like it is a product launch that is happening.

Deputy commissioner of police, Abba Kyari has been acknowledged by the FBI as a beneficiary of the benevolent nature of the socially acclaimed fraudster and internet celebrity, Hushpuppi.

DCP Abba Kyari The Super Cop Reacts

In a response by Abba Kyari on his Facebook page, he clearly stated that in what seem like a story of a native cloth picker that “Abbas who we later came to know as Hushpuppi called our office about 2years ago that somebody in Nigeria Seriously threatened to kill his Family here in Nigeria and he sent the person’s Phone number and pleaded we take action before the Person attacks his family.

We traced and arrested the Suspect and after investigations, we discovered there wasn’t an actual threat to anyone’s life And they are long-time friends who have money issues between them hence we released the Suspect on bail to go and he was not taken to any jail.

He further stated that “Nobody demanded any money from Abbas Hushpuppi and nobody collected any money from him. We responded to a distress call he made on the threat to his family and released the Suspect when we discovered there was no life threat from the Suspect. This is the true story. Vincent is alive, he can be contacted.

“For those who are celebrating that this is an indictment on us and mentioning some fictitious Big Money, They will be disappointed once again as our hands are clean and our record of Service for 2 decades is open for everybody to See. They will continue seeing us serving our fatherland and we will Continue responding to all distress calls from all Nigerians provided they are life-threatening.”

Well according to reports there are concrete evidence against him enjoying the benevolent nature of Nigeria’s foremost international fraudster as an officer of the law. This has sparked the question of how corrupt is the law enforcement system in Nigeria? How would the innocent remain innocent and how would the guilty stay guilty.

A powerful police officer on the payroll of an international fraudster can we call this corruption of the highest? If there is such a high-level collaborator of fraud then what would the underlying do?

IGP Usman Baba Issues Immediate Review Of Alleged Indictment of DCP Abba Kyari

The Nigerian police in a swift response but not swift proactive mode, has issued a statement, the inspector general of police, Usman Alkali Baba has ordered an internal review of the allegations set forward by the FBI and the case would be communicated to the members of the public accordingly.
