Obasanjo’s wife files suit in Lagos court to stop son’s wedding

Taiwo Obasanjo

Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo, wife of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Monday filed a suit at an Ikeja High Court, seeking to stop the wedding of her son, Olujonwo Obasanjo, scheduled for May 11.

Ex-President Obasanjo and the father of the bride, Sir Kessington Adebutu, promoter of Premier Lotto known as “Baba Ijebu” are respondents to the suit.

Mrs Obasanjo, who is the twin sister of Chief Kenny Martins, the former Coordinator of the Police Equipment Fund, is seeking a postponement of the wedding of her son, Olujonwo to Tope Adebutu scheduled for May 11 and May 12.

She wants the wedding to be fixed for a date after June 1.

NAN reports that Olujonwo and Tope had an elaborate introduction on Dec. 17, 2016 with the social media awash with photographs of the event.

Obasanjo, among others, is seeking a court declaration that as the mother of the groom, she had the rights to take part in the deliberations, decisions and activities leading to the forthcoming ceremony.

According to her, wedding invitations have been sent out and she has been excluded from the preparations for the ceremonies.

She said she also received prophesies and warnings from men of God to the effect that Olujonwo, her son who turns 34 on June 1, should not do or be involved in any elaborate celebration before his birthday.

The woman wants the court to compel Adebutu and Obasanjo to shift the wedding to a date after June 1 after she had appealed to Adebutu and Mrs Rosemary Dacosta, the mother of the bride, Tope Adebutu, the bride-to-be as well as Chief Kenny Martins.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Justice Lateefa Okunnu has fixed April 10 for hearing of the suit no. ID/262FPM/2017.

    If it is because of the warning from the men of God I think as a mother you are doing the right thing because mother will always save guide the life of her kids. Father may regard the vision as nothing but when it happens the mother will suffer the loss more.

    Abeg leav all dis stories of prophesy dat u shouldnt do elaborate tin or make noise…… If d groom, d “prophesiers”, d mother of d groom-to-be and whoever is involved or concerned cannot pray and fast and believe in God, den they are not true worshippers of the almighty….

    Yes, something is really wrong somewhere. Like, when a mother in law prevents her daughter from bringing her fiancee home to “meet the parents” prior to the wedding, the wedding would one day hit the rocks, as, some of the most important pillars of marriage are the parents! A woman who married without taking her man to her parents first, and trying to meet her would-be -husbands family may be a prostitute! Why was she(mother of the groom) excluded from the wedding preparations? She is very important to her sons wedding and the well-being of the marriage. I think she did the right thing. Not good at all.

    It is obvious that they’re excluding her because
    she’s trying to sabotage the chosen dates of the wedding that goes against what her so called “prophets” are telling her. So called “prophets” can be very dangerous causing wahala between families. So and so are behind why you’re having this and that problems, when the real problem is the man/woman in the mirror. People please wake up. Don’t be scared of your own shadow.
