Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has sued an online journalist and radio presenter, Mr Akanda Oro, popularly known as Awikonko, for N1bn.
Obasanjo described as untrue claims by the reporter that he had a hand in the assassination of the late Attorney General of the Federation, Chief Bola Ige (SAN), and the slain National Vice-Chairman of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party, Marshall Harry.
According to PUNCH, the journalist was quoted as saying on live radio that Obasanjo killed Ige .
Awikonko was quoted as saying,
“Obasanjo’s murder of Bola Ige, if not for the shortage of time, I would have listed the names of those murdered by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo during his regime. Bloodshed during Obasanjo Aremu’s regime was too much (foolish old man).
“There are repercussions for every evil deed done… In case you hear of my death, do not be sad. Perhaps this is the only mission I have been sent by God to accomplish. The fellow that killed a whole Minister of Justice and Aattorney General of the Federation went scot free.
“So, what will it cost him to kill me, a commoner? Let him commit suicide or take himself before ogun shrine to swear that he does not know anything about the murder of Bola Ige and Marshall Harry or that all his children die in his lifetime.”
