Ex-wife of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Mrs. Taiwo Obasanjo Martins, on Monday, sued him and Sir Kessington Adebutu, promoter of Premier Lotto known as “Baba Ijebu” over her son’s wedding.
In the suit Mrs. Obasanjo Martins filed before an Ikeja High Court, she is seeking to stop the wedding of her son, Olujonwo Obasanjo and his fiancee, daughter of Sir Adebutu, Tope, scheduled for May 11 and 12, NAN reports.
Earlier Olujonwo and Tope had an elaborate introduction on Dec. 17, 2016.
The report said the groom’s mother is seeking a postponement of Olujonwo and Tope’s wedding to any date after June 1.
She is seeking a court declaration that as the mother of the groom, she had the rights to take part in the deliberations, decisions and activities leading to the forthcoming ceremony.
According to the report, she alleged that the wedding invitations have been sent out and she has been excluded from the preparations for the ceremonies.
She added that she 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 is asking the court to compel Adebutu and Obasanjo to shift the wedding to a date after June 1, saying her appeal to them, Mrs. Rosemary Dacosta, the mother of the bride, the bride-to-be as well as Chief Kenny Martins, her twin brother were to no avail.
Justice Lateefa Okunnu has fixed April 10 for hearing.
