Obasanjo@84: How Obasanjo’s son accused him of sleeping with his wife

By  | 

 

Chief Olusegun Matthew Okikiola Aremu Obasanjo, GCFR, (born 5 March 1937) is a Nigerian political and military leader who served as Nigeria’s head of state from 1976 to 1979 and later as its President from 1999 to 2007. Ideologically a Nigerian nationalist, he was a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from 1999 to 2015 and again from 2018 onward.

Today, we are bringing you all the drama that happened back then between ex president Olusegun Obasanjo and his son, Gbenga Obasanjo.

The saying that those whom the gods want to destroy, they first make mad, may be haunting Nigeria’s ex- president once again.

As at that time, it was not the ex-dictator’s violent and lawless kleptocracy that seems to be the matter.

Gbenga, through his lawyers, is attesting that his father, Olusegun “Igbochukwu” Obasanjo, has had a love affair with his wife! Readers are invited to digest the report on this abomination below. Poor Gbenga!

The first son of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Gbenga, has sensationally accused him and his father-in-law, Otunba Alex Onabanjo, of sleeping with his wife, Mojisola Gbenga, and asked Lagos High Court to dissolve the seven-year-old marriage, doubts the paternity of the fruits of the wedlock.

The shocking revelation was contained in an affidavit deposited by the petitioner in response to cross-petition of the defendant, a copy of which was made available to newsmen.

Earlier, Mojisola had accused Gbenga of sundry sins including assault and battery. The divorce suit has been dragging in court since 2006. The 50-paragraph affidavit is averred to on Gbenga’s behalf by his solicitors, Addeh Associates.

The tenth paragraph says: “The Petitioner (Gbenga Obasanjo) further avers that he knows for a fact that the Respondent committed adultery with and had an intimate, s*xual relationship with his own father, General Olusegun Obasanjo, due to her greed to curry favours and contracts from him in his capacity as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The Petitioner avers that the Respondent also got rewarded for her adulterous acts with several oil contracts with the NNPC from his father, General Olusegun Obasanjo, amongst which was the NNPC consultancy training in supply chain management and project management awarded to her company Bowen and Brown.”

The eighth paragraph says: “The Petitioner avers that the respondent confided in him severally while they living together (sic) that she had been s*xually abused and defiled by her father, Otunba Alex Onabanjo on several occasions.”

Today, it seems the matter has died down as both parties have moved on with their lives.
