Gbenga Obasanjo promises to expose more on father
The recent leakage of an affidavit submitted in the lingering divorce litigation between son of former Nigerian President, Dr. Gbenga Obasanjo and his estranged wife, Mrs. Mojisola Obasanjo, (nee Onabanjo) may soon snowball into startling revelations on how several powerful and rich individuals have been using incest as a form of ritual to get rich.
Mojisola is also seeking a monthly payment of N300,000 for the period of 15 years till the children attain adulthood.
A source close to the Obasanjo Family disclosed to pointblanknews.com earlier in the week that Dr. Obasanjo was spotted at a meeting with the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Michael Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, where he expressed his disappointment, sorrow and personal grief on the incestuous conduct of ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo and his father-in-law, Chief Alex Onabanjo.
The source who prefer to be anonymous in order not to be seen as giving out sensitive family secrets of the Obasanjo family said that the meeting between Gbenga and Oba Gbadebo afforded the embattled first son of Obasanjo to lay his grouse against Obasanjo and father-in-law, Chief Alex Onabanjo who was also accused of having had canal knowledge of his daughter, Mojisola.
The source said that Gbenga who has now drawn a battle line, vowed to the Alake that Nigerians are in for more “horrific shockers” on a non-specific deal between Obasanjo and his famous first daughter, Senator Iyabo Obasanjo-Bello and some of the female Ministers and Special Advisers during his regime as President of Nigeria.
The source further said that Gbenga was extremely upset that he told Oba Gbadebo that his father, General Obasanjo is “the most diabolical and fetish character in Nigeria and it is high time he is exposed.”
Gbenga was said to have told the Egba paramount ruler that Obasanjo was not alone in having mind disturbing sexual escapades with ladies with close family ties that other powerful and influential Nigerians have been engaging in similar incestuous act for purposes of rituals popular called “Awure” in Yoruba Land.
Investigations revealed that Gbenga’s father-in-law, Chief Onabanjo had allegedly, for reasons of the so called Awure Rituals and the need to perpetuate his lineage, once had an adulterous relationship with the wife of a Guardian newspapers employee. The Guardian employee, Mr. Ganiyu Odusanya who works as an Advert Executive was said to have lost his one beloved wife to Chief Onabanjo who used the conjugal relationship to father his first and only Son. The fruit of that adulterous and ritualistic act is now a high school student. Chief Onabanjo and Ganiyu Odusanya are both indigenes of Ago-Iwoye in Ogun State. Prior to having the male child with Mr. Ganiyu Odusanya’s wife, Alex Onabanjo, whose Norwegian company, PGS is facing serious financial difficulties only had females.
Gbenga was said to have told Oba Gbadebo that Nigerians would be disappointed to know the other masquerading so called important personalities having ritual sex and incest, the same clique to which Obasanjo unfortunately belong. Meanwhile several Nigerians have written to Editors of pointblanknews.com asking spiritual authorities in the country to investigate and determine the supernatural implications of Obasanjo’s alleged incestuous and other adulterous relationships on the intractable economic, social and political crises in the country.
Meanwhile, Mojisola Obasanjo, estranged wife of Dr. Gbenga Obasanjo who have been alleged to have engaged in an incestuous sexual relationship with her father Chief Alex Onabanjo and her father-in-law, former President Olusegun Obasanjo is seeking a lump sum of £360,000 or its Naira equivalent and $400,000 or its Naira equivalent for the education of the two children from the broken marriage. The sum of £360,000, she claimed, would cover cost of school fees for a period of six years each for the two children at a secondary school in Switzerland already picked by their father, while $400,000 would be the cost of a four-year degree program for both of the children in an American University.
Gbenga, first son of former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, got contracts from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) while his father was in office, his estranged wife, Mojisola, has claimed.
Mojisola and Gbenga are currently seeking the dissolution of their seven-year-old marriage at the Lagos High Court, Ikeja Division, in Suit No. ID/172HD/2006.
While Gbenga is claiming that his wife was sleeping with the former president - his own father - in order to get government contracts, Mojisola claims her husband has been violent towards her.
In her cross-petition against Gbenga, who is the petitioner, Mojisola is demanding hefty compensation because of the financial status of the husband.
She claimed under “Particulars of Income of the Petitioner” that the petitioner (Gbenga) makes an average annual income of N500 million.
According to her, “The Petitioner earns from commissions paid to him as an Agent to a construction company with various construction projects, which was recently awarded an 11 billion Naira construction contract.
“The Petitioner has several construction contracts from Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
“The Petitioner owns substantial shares in an Oil Trading Company, Linetrale Trading Company Ltd, a Company engaged in importing, selling, supplying and marketing of petroleum products.
“The Petitioner also collects oil allocations from Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
“The Petitioner receives payments from Health Aids Support Services, an HIV consulting firm currently working on a transaction with MTN, and some state governments.
“The Petitioner receives commission for brokering different deals on behalf of foreign companies and earns a sizeable commission therefrom.
“The Petitioner received Commission for the supply of 800 vehicles to Ogun State.
“The Petitioner has substantial investment in some Oil Blocks.
“The Petitioner has substantial investment in Glo Oil Ltd. and Hyster Investments Ltd.”
She claimed Gbenga had the capability to earn income because he is a “medical doctor with a Masters in Public Health and a PhD from Johns Hopkins University, USA. The Petitioner has the goodwill of being the son of the serving President of the largest black nation in the world which gives him access to several eminent world political leaders and business personalities all of which he has utilized and continue to utilize and leverage upon to earn considerable income from all state governors in Nigeria, Commissioners of various States in Nigeria top executives in the public and private sector of the Nigerian economy.”
She listed the physical estate of her husband as “land in Maitama, Abuja, land in Banana Island, Ikoyi, land in Lekki Phase 1, land in Abeokuta, a house in GRA Ikeja, Peugeot 607, Land Cruiser Jeep 2006 model, Kia Opirus” among others.
She claimed she became aware of the particulars of Gbenga’s income as a result of “prior discussions” between them while they lived together.
As “ancillary relief” for the dissolution of the marriage, Mojisola asked the court for a permanent order directing the Petitioner to pay a lump sum of N54 million for the maintenance of the Respondent (herself) and the two children of the marriage, Boluwatife and Wuraola, till the children attain adulthood.
She also sought an order that the Petitioner provide two of the fleet of cars owned by him for the Respondent and her children's use together with a chauffeur to be paid by the Petitioner; an order that the family house at No. 8 Ladipo Bateye Street, GRA Ikeja be settled on the Respondent or in the alternative the Petitioner be ordered to pay the sum of N50million to be used by the Respondent to purchase a decent house of comparable standard for the accommodation of the Respondent and her two children; and an order directing the Petitioner to make adequate financial arrangement for provision of security for the two children of the marriage (including adequate security safeguards for the premises where they will be residing) being grand children of the former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
