Female ex-governorship aspirant accused of fleeing with Jonathan’s late CSO’s money

Female ex-governorship aspirant accused of fleeing with Jonathan’s late CSO’s money

Dr. Ngozi Olejeme, a governorship aspirant on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta State in 2015, has reportedly fled with money kept with her by Ex-Chief Security Officer (CSO) to former President Goodluck Jonathan, late Gordon Obua.


Dr. Olejeme, who was Chairman, Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund during the immediate past regime and Late Obua were said to be romantically linked.

Late Obua died last Thursday at the National Hospital, Abuja. The Department of State Security Services, DSS, had arrested him two months after ex-President Jonathan left power in May 2015 over allegation that he moved large sums of security money in the last administration as well as oil theft in the Niger Delta.

He was also accused of conspiring with former Minister of Petroleum to spend $6.9 million dollars to buy three 40-feet mobile stages for use during mass public speaking events.

Controversy has equally trailed his death with some blaming the government for it.

“Autopsy will confirm the real cause of his death, but I don’t believe he was killed by anybody in government”, Leadership Newspaper quoted the deceased’s wife, Merit Gordon Obua, a mother of triplet, as saying.

The paper in veiled reference to Dr. Olejeme said it gathered from a source related to the deceased that late Obua and the Delta-born female politician were at daggers drawn before his demise.

It said the late CSO kept millions of dollar in Dr. Olejeme’s care, which she carted away and fled with it to South Africa where she currently lives.

“She is in possession of his wealth and she ran to South Africa. The late Gordon made effort to trace her, but to no avail. The woman is said to be married to a man in South Africa and has changed her name”, the paper quoted the family source as saying.
