Mrs. Taiwo Obasanjo, wife of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Monday, filed a suit at an Ikeja High Court, seeking to stop the wedding of her son, Olujonwo, scheduled for May 11.
Ex-President Obasanjo and the father of the bride, Kessington Adebutu, promoter of premier lotto known as ‘Baba Ijebu’ are respondents to the suit.
The woman, who is the twin sister of Kenny Martins, former coordinator of the Police Equipment Fund, is seeking a postponement of the wedding of her son. But why?
She wants the wedding to be fixed for a date after June 1.
Olujonwo and Tope had an elaborate introduction on December 17, 2016 with social media awash with photographs of the event.
Taiwo, among others, is seeking a court declaration that as the groom’s mother, she had the rights to take part in the deliberations, decisions and activities leading to the forthcoming ceremony.
According to her, wedding invitations have been sent out and she has been excluded from the preparations for the ceremonies.
The mother said she also received prophesies and warnings from men of God to the effect that Olujonwo, her son who turns 34 on June 1, should not do or be involved in any elaborate celebration before his birthday.
She wants the court to compel Obasanjo and Adebutu to shift the wedding to a date after June 1.
She had appealed to Adebutu and Rosemary Dacosta, mother of the bride, Tope Adebutu, the bride-to-be as well as Kenny Martins.
Justice Lateefa Okunnu has fixed April 10 for hearing of the suit. Serious family matter.
