Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo, wife of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has alleged that assassins are after her life and that of her son, Olajuwon.
Speaking with Vanguard yesterday, she claimed that her life and that of her son was under threat for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari during the last presidential election.
Mrs Obasanjo said reliable information at her disposal disclosed that former President Obasanjo paid the assassins who are already on her trail with the aim of killing her and Olajuwon.
According to her, the assassins plan to make the scene look like that of an armed robbery operation after killing her and her son.
She said: ”I want the world to know that my life and that of my son, Olujonwo is under threat for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari in the last election.
”A very reliable source have informed me that ‘Baba’ Obasanjo has sent out assassins to kill me and my son because he is not happy that we supported Buhari to win the last election.
“They have been paid to kill us and make it look like an armed robbery attack. I am crying out now to let the whole world know who to blame if anything happens to me and my son.
“Since me and my son expressed our support for Buhari’s administration and his quest for reelection, Baba Obasanjo has not been happy with us. I am appealing to anyone who knows ‘Baba’ to please tell him not to kill me and my Son.
“It should not become a crime that must bring me and my Son death because we are supporting President Buhari.
“I am also appealing to the police and other security agencies to please come to our aid. This is a serious threat and the police should please help us.”
