My mother is looking for attention – Obasanjo’s son



Olujonwo, one of the sons of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, has warned his mother, Ms. Taiwo Martins, not to use him to seek media attention.

Jonwo, who got married last year, described the claim by his mother that he was missing as “ridiculous”.

Ms. Martins had claimed that her son was missing from his matrimonial home and alerted the Police about it.

But in a statement made available to journalists in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Thursday, the 34-year-old made it clear he was old enough to manage his life.

“At my age of over 34 years, it is ridiculous to extreme that my mother would ask the Police to look for me.

“I am well, alive and kicking and the Police need not look for me. For peace in my life, I have decided to keep away from my mother for now. She should not make me part of her seeking media attention.

“My siblings and others in my family who care about me without negative influence and abhorrent action know my whereabouts and we keep interacting and communicating.

“My father, who has supported me and my decisions in every aspect of my life, has been in constant communication with me and he is aware that I am hale and hearty.

“This is my personal and deliberate decision. I don’t want crocodile tears nor undue publicity from anybody,” Jonwo stated.
