Taiwo, the estranged wife of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has raised an alarm over alleged threat to her life for supporting the re-election of Muhammadu Buhari.

She said she was reliably informed that Obasanjo was not happy with her and her son for their decision.

Obasanjo, a retired military General and former president of Nigeria, was yet to react at the time of this report.

Read Taiwo’s full statement below:

I am Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo and l want to alert the whole world that my life and that of my son Mr Abraham Olujonwo Obasanjo is under threat due to our decision to support President Muhammadu Buhari in the last election.

I was reliably told that Chief Obasanjo is not pleased with our decision to support Buhari and he has sent out assassin to kill me and my Son for publicly coming out in supporting President Buhari.

From the reliable information at my disposal, it was disclosed to me that Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has paid the assassins who are already trailing me to kill me and my Son Olujonwo.

The assassins intend to kill me first and make it appear as an armed robbery operation.

The second phase of the plot is to kill my son, Olujonwo in another armed robbery attack in the night.

I want the world to know that my life and that of my son, Olujonwo is under threat for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari in the last election.

I am crying out now to let the whole world know who to blame if anything happen

Since President Buhari won the election Chief Obasanjo have developed very strong hatred for me and my son and he does not speak to my Son again or pick his calls.

I am appealing to anyone who knows ‘Baba Obasanjo” to please tell him not to kill me and my Son. Politics should not be a do or die for him and it should not become a crime that must bring me and my Son death because we are supporting President Buhari.

“I am also appealing to the police and other security agencies to please come to our aid. This is a serious threat and the police should please help us.” Chief Obasanjo has vowed that he will kill us both and nothing will happen.

This matter is not a joking matter.

This issue is not imaginary or attention seeking or a publicity stunt.

Meanwhile, the federal government on Monday, April 22, said it would be unfair for Nigerians to measure its achievements in the fight against corruption by the number of convictions it has secured.

Legit.ng reports that the minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, stated this when he featured on a live TVC news programme, “This Morning”.
