Obasanjo’s Wife Accuses Him Of Sending Assassins After Her, Son For Supporting Buhari

Mrs Taiwo Obaasanjo

LAGOS MAY 7TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Taiwo Obasanjo, wife of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has alleged that she and her son, Olujonwo, were now living in fear for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari in the last election.
Mrs. Obasanjo said she was reliably told that someone, who is not pleased with her decision to support Buhari, had sent assassins after her and her son.

According to her, she got reliable information to the effect that Chief Olusegun Obasanjo had allegedly paid assassins who were already trailing her and Olujonwo.
Mrs. Obasanjo said the assassins were planning to kill her first and make it appear as an armed robbery operation.
She also alleged that the second phase of the plot would be to kill Olujonwo in another supposed armed robbery attack.
“I want the world to know that my life and that of my son, Olujonwo, are under threat for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari in the last election.
“A very reliable source has informed me that Baba Obasanjo has sent out assassins to kill me and my son because he is not happy that we supported Buhari to win the last election.
“They have been paid to kill us and make it look like an armed robbery attack. I am crying out now to let the whole world know who to blame if anything happens to me and my son.
“Since me and my son expressed our support for Buhari’s administration and his quest for re-election, Baba Obasanjo has not been happy with us.
“I am appealing to anyone who knows Baba to please tell him not to kill me and my son. It should not become a crime that must bring me and my son death because we are supporting President Buhari.
“I am also appealing to the police and other security agencies to, please, come to our aid.
“This is a serious threat and the police should please help us. This is not imaginary or attention-seeking, or a publicity stunt.”
Efforts to get the reaction of Obasanjo proved unsuccessful and calls put across to his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, via his mobile phone number did not deliver for a very long time.
But a source, who is close to the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library home of the former president confided in Daily Independent that Obasanjo was out of the country and won’t be back soon.
