Obasanjo’s wife files suit to stop son’s wedding to Sir Kessington Adebutu’s daughter

Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo, wife of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has filed a suit at an Ikeja High Court, seeking to stop the wedding of her son, Olujonwo Obasanjo.

Olujuwon is billed to marry Tope Adebutu, daughter of Premier Lotto (Baba Ijebu) owner, Sir Kessington Adebutu (Baba Ijebu) on May 11, 2017. But Mrs Obasanjo was the wedding postponed.

Ex-President Obasanjo and Sir Adebutu are respondents to the suit.

Mrs Obasanjo wants the wedding to be fixed for a date after June 1. She also wants the court to declare that as mother of the groom, she had the right to take part in the deliberations, decisions and activities leading to the forthcoming ceremony.

She said she received prophesies and warnings from men of God telling her that Olujuwon, who turns 34 on June 1, must not be involved in any elaborate ceremony before his birthday. She said she had been excluded from the wedding preparations.

Justice Lateefa Okunnu has fixed April 10 for hearing of the suit no. ID/262FPM/2017.

Olujonwo and Tope had an elaborate introduction on December 17, 2016.
