Son of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, Olujonwo, has conducted his traditional marriage to the daughter of Kessington Adebutu, popularly known as Baba Ijebu, Tolulope.
According to PREMIUM TIMES , the ceremony took place despite the controversy surrounding the date of the marriage. The ceremony, which held at the Balmoral Hall of Federal Palace Hotel in Lagos, was attended by prominent Nigerians including politicians, business moguls, and traditional rulers.
Recall that, Taiwo Obasanjo, the groom’s mother, had in a letter to The Methodist Church of Nigeria, said the dates chosen for the wedding of Abraham Obasanjo to Tope Adebutu – May 11 and 13 – would precipitate untold misery for the country.“The two dates were chosen and compelled by Satan for them to lure unsuspecting numerous souls to a banquet of death, that will result in strange holocaust in our nation,” Mrs. Obasanjo had said.
“After the wedding, you will be hearing and seeing incidents of plane crashes, fire incidents, multiple road accidents, tankers and trailer killing people, cancers, diseases of kidney, liver, prostrate, eyes issues and diverse health problem causing strange death in people and the economy situation will worsen.”
She had filed a suit at an Ikeja High Court, seeking to stop the wedding but it was dismissed on the grounds that the court lacked jurisdiction to hear it.
The traditional marriage held at the Balmoral Hall of Federal Palace Hotel in Lagos and was well attended by politicians, business moguls and traditional rulers.
The white wedding is scheduled for this Saturday.
