The children of Olusegun Obasanjo, former Nigerian president, and Kessington Adebutu, owner of Premier Lotto, on Thursdayhad their traditional wedding.

PREMIUM TIMES learnt that the ceremony took place despite the controversy surrounding the date of the marriage.

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.”

Earlier, Mrs. Obasanjo had filed a suit at an Ikeja High Court, seeking to stop the wedding but Lateefat Okunnu, the presiding judge, dismissed the suit on the grounds that the court lacked jurisdiction to hear it because the groom, 33, is an adult.

PREMIUM TIMES gathered that 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.

The white wedding is expected to take place on Saturday.
