Court Dismisses Obasanjo's Wife Request To Stop Son's Wedding
She wants her son to say 'I do' on a later date. After mediation failed, she went to court seeking an extension.
Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo, wife of former President Olusegun Obsanjo seems to be a very religious person that she went as far as seeking a court injunction to stop his son's wedding because of prophecies.
Justice Lateefa Okunnu, dismissed the suit on the grounds that the court lacked jurisdiction to hear the suit because Olujonwo, 33, is an adult.
Former President Obasanjo and the father of the bride, Sir Kessington Adebutu, promoter of Premier Lotto known as “Baba Ijebu” are the respondents to the suit.
Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo was present in court while former President Obasanjo and Sir Adebutu were absent.
Mrs Obasanjo had in her suit filed on March 27, prayed that the wedding which is scheduled for May 11, be moved to any date after June 1 which is Olujonwo’s 34th birthday.
According to her, she had received various warnings and prophecies from men of God that her son should not be involved in any elaborate celebration before his birthday.
Earlier during proceedings, Mr Bode Olanipekun, counsel to Obasanjo and Adebutu, had asked the court to dismiss the suit due to lack of jurisdiction.
