A source who
spoke to us from a northern state in Nigeria described the love between Fernandez and Halima as one that was “beyond emotional exploit”. Halima, Kano born blue blood is said to
have been introduced to the late African Chief
by his friend and late Emir of Kano,
Alhaji Ado Beyero who passed away on
June 5, 2014 at age 80. Fernandez
and Bayero were good friends in
their life time to the extent that the late emir turbaned the late Baron of Dudley as the “Garsan Fulani
(Champion of the right of the Fulani people of Kano).

Pretty Halima Fernandez

Fernandez who hadn’t got it smoothly with
women, especially of the Southern part of Nigeria in his early marriages was
said to have found a true and genuine love in Halima who was equally a compassionate lover with lot of innocence
on her pretty face. “Halima was like
his old age consolation as she revived his old memory of love and spur his
emotions to live. Don’t forget he was just getting out of a heart wrenching
alimony case with another woman he loves but who broke his heart”

The source
said the wedding with Halima Fernandez
which was low keyed did not only happen in
but was also brought to the notice of family members in Lagos. “Of
course Halima is a Kano girl from a well trained aristocratic family and she
was the chief reason Fernandez decided
to live the remainder of his life in Kano since he married her in 2003. His
love for her couldn’t make him dishonor her geographical delight”
“This blog gathered that the entire Olumegbon family of Lagos has reached
out to Mrs. Fernandez  on the matter 
of their son’s estate but were told that she will talk to them very soon
in Lagos when she comes for her sixth month prayers”.

Fernandez made Halima to meet some of his great friends and personalities as he
was so fond of her humble northern spirit and touch of innocence. The late Isale-Eko,
Lagos born Deinde Fernandez attended
several editions of the Eko Festival
with Halima and even introduced her
to the Oba of Lagos, Olowo Eko, Oba (Dr.) Rilwan Osuolale Akiolu who is his brother. They both hail
from the famous Olumegbon Royal family of Lagos.

The Love on the eve of his Death

According to
a family source Mr. Chimazuru Oblong
who is privy to the ongoing war between Abimbola and Halima, and
who equally read the funeral oration at Fernandez’s
funeral in Brussels-Belgium, the late Ambassador Plenipotentiary already
warned his kids never to disturb his beloved wife, Halima in his absence or in the case of his demise, warning that
such action will carry a dire consequence, as he will be fighting such person
from his grave.
Using his
twitter handle @grandiluminati, Chimazuru revealed how he was invited
to have dinner and a drink of  fine Guatemalan
with the late Chief
one evening in Brussels and months before his
demise; during the course of dinner,  Chief Fernandez was said to have put a
call to his first daughter Chief (Mrs.)
Teju Philips
and one of the Lagos traditional chiefs in Lagos and that he
vividly remembered the conversation between Chief and  his phone guests, because Chief Fernandez had her (Teju Philips) on speaker and what he said to her
towards the end was a bit strange. Chimazuru
said the late Chief Fernandez warned
his first daughter, Chief (Mrs.) Teju Philips that if and whenever he
dies, if any of his children disturbs and troubles his wife (Halima) he would
hunt them down from the grave.
He said Teju Philips had assured the old man
that she will never go against his wish or allow any one to do same.
Surprisingly, Chief Fernandez died
few months after the strange instruction.

This might
not be far from facts and reaction coming to Asabeafrika that indeed,
the late Deinde Fernandez married Halima legally and Abimbola his heiress might be set for a shock if
eventualities justify her claims to be wrong. 
Right now, Abimbola is
battling a Lesbian allegation hanging on her personality due to some tweets
that emerged between her and some of her friends on her tweeter handle which
was said to have equally led to a secret war between her and her departed

their late son in front of the family elders. Until then, she is restrained
from commenting now.
