Ex-President Obasanjo's Wife Loses Case In Court Over An Attempts To Stop Her Adult Son's Wedding


An Ikeja High Court has declined to support the decision of Baba Obasanjo Wife. The suit recorded by
Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo, spouse of previous President Olusegun Obasanjo, looking for deferment of the wedding of her child Olujonwo to Tope AdebutuJustice Lateefa Okunnu dismissed the suit on the grounds that the court lacked jurisdiction to hear the suit because her son Olujonwo, 33, is an adult. 

“On March 27, I ordered counsel to direct me on whether the family court can hear a case where the child is an adult. Counsel have addressed me and I have read the processes before me. 

“I have found to be very genuine, what the applicant said regarding performing her parental duties in paragraph 15 of her affidavit. The court, regrettably, lacks the competence to adjudicate this suit, the jurisdiction of the family court covers children under the age of 18 years. 

“The respondents son is 33-years-old, this negates the ability of this court to entertain this suit. The proper order to give is one dismissing this suit in its entirety, I hereby dismiss this suit,” the judge said.

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. .
