Obasanjo’s wife alleges plot to assassinate her over son’s wedding
The wife of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Taiwo, has alleged that some persons have been detailed to assassinate her following a court action she filed last month to postpone her son’s wedding.
She disclosed this in a petition sent to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police on April 4, 2017.
Mrs. Obasanjo alleged that those assigned to kill her include her twin brother, Chief Kenny Martins, her would-be daughter-in-law, Tope Adebutu and mother-in-law, Rosemary Dacosta.
She further stated that the three have perfected plans to get the police to arrest and detain her between May 10 to 14, 2017 when the wedding is scheduled to take place.
The petition reads: “I was reliably informed that the three person mentioned above have perfected plans to assassinate me because I requested the court to shift the wedding date of my son from the month of May to June 2017.
“They also have a plan to smear my person using various media platforms such as newspaper, Internet etc.”
When contacted, Chief Martins declined to comment on the allegation, saying he is not aware of any petition by anybody against him.
