Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo, the wife of former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has cried out over alleged threats to her life and that of her son, Olajuwon.
Speaking with newsmen on Sunday, Obasanjo claimed that assassins were after their life for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari during the February 23 presidential election.
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 has 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.”
