Dangote's former girl

The American lady who dated Aliko Dangote for ten years, Autumn Spikes has been evicted from her North Miami apartment in Florida. Dangote’s former girl was evicted for not paying her rental over a period of more than six months.

Ms. Spikes and her enstranged lover are in court in Florida for allegedly trying to extort $5million from Nigeria’s richest man.

She allegedly pilled up rent arrears for six months in 2020 to the tune of $13,230.

Despite the 30-day ‘Pay or Vacate’ notice on August 5 by the landlord of the property, The Shoreline at SoleMia, 2301 Laguna Circle, North Miami, Florida, Dangote’s former girl neither paid the debt nor vacated her apartment number 1708. After the expiration of the 30-day notice, the landlord, on September 19, 2020, filed an eviction suit against her at a Miami Dade County court, in Florida, the same court where Mr Dangote would later sue Dangote in January.

PREMIUM TIMES on Thursday obtained the complaint, notice of debt, the lease and other documents filed as exhibits by Ms Spikes’ landlord in the suit that is now closed. The landlord’s complaint in the eviction suit reads in part, “Plaintiff owns or is the lessor of the real property, the premises: “The Shoreline at SoleMia, 2301 Laguna Circle Apt 1708, North Miami, FL 33181.

“Tenant retains possession of the premises under a written lease requiring rent of $2,215.00 per month to be paid the first of each month. “A copy of relevant portions of the lease is attached hereto and incorporated herein as plaintiff’s Exhibit A. “Tenant failed to pay rent for March, April, May, June, July and August.

“Tenant owes plaintiff rent the months stated in paragraph 6 herein in the total sum of $13,230.00 “Plaintiff served tenant notice to pay or vacate the premises on August 5, 2020 as shown by copy or copies of the notice(s) attached here to and incorporated herein as plaintiff’s Exhibit (s) B, but tenant refuses to do either.

“In accordance with Fla. Stat. (Florida Statutes) Section 83.60(2), if tenant fails to deposit the sum of $13,230.00 in the court registry, plus rent which accrued during the pendency of this action, then plaintiff is entitled to a default judgment for removal of tenant and to recover a judgment for rent due and owing costs in accordance with Fla. Stat. Sections 83.59 and 83.625.

In pushing the case against Dangote’s former girl it was further alleged: “Failure of tenant to pay rent as due caused plaintiff to retain undersigned counsel and incur reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, which tenant should pay pursuant to Flat. Stat. Sec 83.48 and the lease. “Wherefore, plaintiff demands judgment for possession of the premises, rent, due, court costs and attorney’s fees against the defendant and other available remedies in accordance with Fla. Stat. Section 83.625 and for such other relief this court deems just and proper.”

Several attempts to serve Dangote’s former girl the court papers failed, hence the landlord on October 10, filed a motion for default judgment, a request for the court to deliver its verdict based on the plaintiff’s claims alone. On October 21, the court delivered a default judgment in favour of the plaintiff.

The court, on October 24, issued a ‘Writ of Possession’ commanding the Sheriffs of the court “to remove all persons” from the apartment and restore possession of the apartment to the plaintiff “after 24 hours notice conspicuously pasted on the premises.” But the Sheriffs said an attempt to serve Ms Spikes with the writ of possession failed.

The report stated that on October 30, 2020, the landlord’s lawyer wrote the Sheriff Department applying for the cancellation of the writ of possession on the grounds that “tenant vacated.” External view of the North Miami house

Ms Spikes did not file any response in the suit when the suit was declared closed by the court.
